There’s a feature on Alex Ovechkin in the December issue of Maxim Russia. I don’t really know much about the photo they used, other than it’s amazing. Is he a robot? A Russian Iron Man? Did the Russian Machine actually break and now needs fixing?

Friend of the Bog and Russian speaker Leon tells us that the caption in yellow doesn’t really make much sense in Russian. It reads, “I wasn’t watching the welding. Maybe I’ll have to put my tongue on frozen metal.”  The other quote posted on Facebook: “I’ll put a tooth in when I leave hockey, right now it’s pointless.”

The full interview is here, if you speak Russian.
