Caps Today 8/1

Posted on August 01, 2013

Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin is looking to add another achievement to his resume: award-winning actor. Ovechkin's 2011 "This is SportsCenter" commercial was named one of the 10 best in the history of the ESPN advertising campaign. The order of the top 10 commercials will be revealed tonight on ESPN at 8 p.m., when former "Saturday Night Live" star Jason Sudeikis counts down the top 50 "This is SportsCenter" ads.

The top 10 ads were selected from more than 400 commercials by the "This is SportsCenter" campaign's creators. The order of the top 10 was determined by a fan vote, which concluded yesterday on SportsCenter's Facebook page. Ovechkin's ad, titled "The Spy," was the only hockey ad to make the top 10.
