The Calgarians said it again, the Washington Capitals are one of the NHL's most exciting teams, and the Calgarian said Alex Ovechkin is his hero. And if it comes from Mike Green, it's an honor.
The Calgary Sun, October 26, 2008:
Calgary's Mike Green mans the blueline for one of the NHL's most exciting teams, the Washington Capitals. It's a long way from Calgary Minor Hockey to hangin' loose with Alexander Ovechkin. We caught up with Mike and put him to the test with our 20 Questions.
It's Sunday morning, what are you having for breakfast?
Scrambled eggs and oatmeal.
If you didn't do what you do for a living, what would you be?
That's a tough question. Something to do with hockey. Coaching.
Who's your hero?
What's one DVD you had to buy?
Me, Myself and Irene. I love it.
Dogs or cats?
What's playing in your iPod right now?
If you could see one concert, what would it be?
Seether. I've seen them, but it was only briefly. I didn't see the whole thing.
What's the best thing about Calgary?
What's the one gadget you can't live without?
Book or video game?
Video game. I play NHL'08. I think it's better than '09, but I'm never Washington. I'm too superstitious.

What's your culinary specialty?
Salmon and rice.

Ride a chopper, a motorcycle.

A double vodka and water.
