Celebrate Ovie's celebrations

To the fans who don't approve Alex Ovechkin's pre-meditated celebrations - come on, lighten up, it's entertainment.

Maybe someday Ovie's expressions will be synonymous with Ali's shuffle and poetry, McEnroe's tantrums, Tiger Woods' fistpump, Al Hrabosky's psyche-up routine, Ozzie Smith's flip, etc.

Sports needs more characters like Ovechkin who show their joy and individuality.
