If you thought it was hard to spend time with families while being a sports player, now is the time to change that and take advantage.

Even though the CDC and all sports have ordered teams to no longer practice or be around each other in an effort to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus, it can be used for those to spend more time together.

Most of you have already seen Ovechkin and Ovi Jr take to the backyard with their hockey sticks, one too big for Ovi Jr to handle and one just way too small of Alex Ovechkin.

Actually, these are two legends in the making.

So, nothing, including a big stage in sports, is never too big for them.

However, it is nice to see that he and his son will get some much needed time together after Ovechkin and his wife announced a few weeks ago that they are expecting a baby boy. Don’t ask me what the name will be because there’s beginning to be too many Ovechkin’s in the world.

Let’s play a game called “Name the baby.” I think the name that should be given to their second baby boy is, wait for it, Legend Ovechkin II. Ok, maybe that’s not going to happen, but it was worth the try.

Legend was my first thought because, well you know, Ovechkin is the best player to ever play the game since Wayne Gretzky. Sure, some of you may say that I’m getting ahead of myself, but that’s the fun part of the game.

Hot. Alex Ovechkin ready for the season to return. light

Either way, shoot me a message below of what you think their baby boys name should be and if you think they’ll ever play hockey again this season or this year.
