Why is Alexander Ovechkin hanging out with Mike Tyson? A better question would be, does he really need a reason?

Ovechkin tweeted a picture of himself and Iron Mike without comment on his Twitter feed, leaving room to imagine an explanation for when, where or why this meeting happened.

After some investigating, it appears that the two were both attending a Virginia card show and decided to snag a pic together, which is admittedly less exciting than the one we were imagining involving wild animals, car chases and several close calls with the police.

That said, it is still awesome. Take a look.
