WATCH: Alex Ovechkin Does Keg Stand Out of Stanley Cup, Swims in Public Fountain as Caps Rage On

Since winning the first Stanley Cup in franchise history on Thursday, the Washington Capitals have been on an historic bender.

Star player Alex Ovechkin has led the charge. He’s been virtually inseparable from the massive Stanley Cup trophy since Thursday night, never missing an opportunity to hoist the goblet over his head before a crowd (see above).

He even filled the Cup with a magnum of Veuve Clicquot champagne at a club on Friday night:

On Saturday, Ovechkin put the Cup down long enough to throw out the first pitch at the Washington Nationals game, and sent the ball soaring over Max Scherzer‘s head. He was granted a mulligan.

During the game, he was spotted in an executive box, the Stanley Cup forever hoisted above his head.

One intrepid reporter decided to interview Ovechkin and right wing Tom Wilson in the suite, but his questions were drowned out by a rendition of “We Are The Champions” and beer chugging:

After the game… there were, naturally, keg stands out of the Cup.

And here’s Ovechkin doing laps in a public fountain:

Ovechkin might be on the biggest Cup heater of all time
