Found November 02, 2011 on Kukla's Korner:
Was the Ovechkin that we saw in last year’s HBO special on the Penguins and the Capitals the ‘real’ Ovechkin, or was Ovechkin playing the jocular Ovechkin he wanted people to see? It’s impossible to know with cameras rolling. Was the grumbling “fat f—-” Ovechkin more real? Who knows? It’s like we’re putting the guy together in an editing bay. Our ability to insert ourselves into the lives of sports figures will only increase — they’re pushing the ball forward themselves online. But it’s not clear if we know any more about them because of it. Cathal Kelly of the Toronto Star where you can read more on this and a great Gordie Howe/Red Kelly story too.
