“I Love My Fans”

Yesterday, I participated in a media conference call with Alex Ovechkin. I figured that if a blogger was participating in a media press conference, it would be appropriate to ask a blogging question.
Gustafsson:

You recently started a blog. Granted, it won’t help too many of us, as it’s in Russian. Is this something that you did on your own, and how often do you plan on updating it throughout the year?

Ovechkin:

Alexander Ovechkin - Blog Pic“Well, I make decision to make my blog because the Russian fans want to know something about me and it gives some questions. The Russian media call me and this is an answer for these questions.
I think it’s nice when you are on the ice and you do some talking with the fans, because, you know, I love my fans and I love Russian fans. They are asking lots of things and I just try and answer.”

Mike Vogel has the complete transcript at his blog, Dump and Chase.

    We regularly hold “Hotlines” with players. Semin, Ovechkin, Fedorov, Kovalev… Whatever our readers and hockey fans want to know, we ask.

    Interesting that he mentions Boomer specifically as new talent brought in. I really considered the re-signing of him an afterthought, as when he was first signed.
