    Great pictures!

    I have to laugh, being a big hockey fan - can I call Alex Ovechkin a "little sheep"?
    I'm sure if I did, he'd run me into the 5th row of seats....

    In Russian language sheep - овца (ovtsa), little sheep - овечка (ovechka), family name "Ovechkin" (Овечкин) really comes from this word. Likely ancestry of Alexandr Ovechkin were breds the sheeps. And maybe this family name comes from nickname of this locomotive :-)
