Alex Ovechkin let his emotions take over while addressing the massive crowd at the Washington Capitals' Stanley Cup victory rally on Tuesday ... and it was AWESOME!!
It was a party 26 years in the making -- the Caps' Stanley Cup victory is the first sports championship in D.C. in nearly 3 decades --- and the players didn't disappoint.
When Ovi got his chance to talk to the fans, he reminded them of his now-famous quote from the beginning of the season, when he promised, "We're not going to be suck this year."
A.O. addressed his prediction today, yelling "We're not going be f**kin' suck this year, we're Stanley Cup Champions!!"
T.J. Oshie added to the fun by pulling his sweater over his head and chugging a beer. And yes, the fans absolutely loved it.
It's the Caps' first 'ship in franchise history ... but man, do they celebrate like they've done it before.
