This is perhaps the most epic thing I’ve seen… perhaps ever. Big props to Russian Machine for finding this:
Here is the link to the actual page but I took a screen cap to keep it forever and ever. And, drum roll please!
… Just as good as promised, yes? Come on Yahoo! Answers CANADA; I thought CANADIANS knew EVERYTHING that EVER happened and FOREVER that will happen in hockey… ever.
Let’s dissect this:
1. “Is Alex Oveckin and Alex Semin brothers?” Are… ARE Alex Ovechkin and Alex Semin brothers…
2. Yes, see it’s a devious Russian plot to make you confused. You see their names are spelt completely different but are pronounced exactly the same way.
3. Mama Semveckin named BOTH her boys Alexander. Because, then you can yell their names and not have one go “Mom! I’m ____” See? No messing up names. Brilliant, Mama Ovecksem.
3. And, come on I mean aren’t Russians all related in that weird Communist way? Like a big hippie commune but a country.
4. Oveckin is #8… Semin is #28 like the second eight. Duh.
5. NOTE: His argument is he thought they might be related because Patrick Sharp and Patrick Kane are related….
Yes. A thousand times yes.
This is Pat Sharp:
This is Pat Kane:
The resemblance is undeniable.
Everything makes sense now. Ohhh the cat is out of the bag, Canada, the cat is out of the bag! Patrick Kane is clearly a double agent sent by Canada to make Americans look like silly, cab driver beating, limo pants taking off, greasy hair having, mullet wearing, pupils always suspiciously too large, Rich and Big singing fools. I always chalked it up to the fact that he is from Buffalo (cue Anna telling me to stop making fun of Buffalo) and because he is 21-year-old male… and American.
But, now Canada it all makes sense. Admit it you devious Canucks. Your names are probably really Sharp Patrick and Kane Patrick. Ohhh you evil genius you, you thought you could fool us, Patrick brothers. We are on to you Kane and Sharp, but we’ll wait until after the Stanley Cup finals to report you to INS, Kane.
So yes, B4USTAR, Alexander Ovechkin and Alexander Semin are brothers;
Brothers from another mother, yeaaaaaaaah!
