Alex Ovechkin brings Stanley Cup to Nationals game, has a blast
Alex Ovechkin does not appear to have stopped partying since the Washington Capitals won the Stanley Cup on Thursday night.
Ovechkin and his Capitals teammates came to the Washington Nationals game on Saturday with the Cup in tow, and nobody seemed to be having a better time than the captain.
First, the Capitals and Nationals took a group picture together with the Cup.

Ovechkin was tasked with throwing out the ceremonial first pitch, but his first attempt went a bit awry, so he demanded a do-over.

Perhaps the best part? Ovechkin, who clearly cannot get enough of the trophy, kept raising it above his head, even during the game while action was taking place.

Ovechkin has waited a long time for this and it has showed in his reactions. Live it up, Ovi.
