I'm Not Surprised, Are You?

From AJC:

Team building:

The Thrashers met with soldiers on a Tuesday trip to Fort Benning and did some team-building combat exercises, such as forming a convoy. Ilya Kovalchuk apparently can shoot more than hockey pucks. He was a good shot with a tank.

“That’s because the other tank wasn’t shooting back,” Anderson said.

Does this qualify as Awesomest News Item Ever?

Jesus I'd like to see a picture of Kovy in the tank.

Before entering Benning both Slava and Kovy were given extensive background checks to see any connection to the former KGB. After the search, Slava was not allowed in.
