Alex Ovechkin Having Trouble Following Puck On TV | The Onion Sports Network

WASHINGTON—Lying on his sofa and flipping through channels Saturday night, Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin settled on a televised hockey game for a few minutes, but reportedly had trouble keeping track of the puck. “It’s going all over the place and it’s moving so fast—how is anyone supposed to follow the thing, let alone enjoy watching it?” asked Ovechkin, adding that he had never heard of any of the players on the ice and hadn’t even realized Nashville had a hockey team. “I guess I’d like it more if there were more goals. A lot of my friends say it’s better to watch a game in person, but I’ve been to a few and they’re just sort of okay, I guess.” After becoming frustrated with the various colored lines and circles on the surface and the seemingly arbitrary “icing” penalty, Ovechkin gave up, watched 20 minutes of a college basketball game, and fell asleep.

I'm not the average hockey nut. It took a bit to grow, but when it did it was like a drug flowing in my veins. I am a season ticket holder of the Norfolk Admirals, longtime supporter of the Washington Capitals, and part time supporter of the Anaheim Ducks (It's hard, but it can be done). My blog is a result of the lack of good sources of Admirals information and happenings. Our paper provides very weak coverage and there is only so much the Admirals themselves can do. There are not to many blogs that cover the Admirals, and when they do it is just rehashed information from the club, the AHL. Nine times out of ten the blogger doesn't even live in the area or go to the games. So what do I want to do? Hmm...good question. I would use this as an outlet for getting out information about the Admirals. Not necessarily the information provided by official channels, but news and information from a fans point of view. Hopefully this is something I can accomplish. I am open to criticism, comments, contributions of infomation for the site. Thank You and Welcome......
