Attention Rangers Fans: This is Evgeny Grachev skating in a circle

Seriously.  This video came from the New York Rangers page on NHL.com.  It's five minutes of top prospect Evgeny Grachev skating around in a circle, set to a dazzling musical offering that could only be described as "rockin' jam session."  If this doesn't have you fiending for more of Grachev, perhaps the next video installment will have him speaking or something. 

And don't worry, if this upbeat, travelin' kind of tune has inspired the sudden urge to play Excitebike, Rad Racer or Pole Position, you're not alone.

However, we must admit, it's hard to get past the opening drum explosion, as we've restarted the video roughly 15 times.

Later today on NHL.com: Grachev eats

Tonight: Grachev sleeps

Tomorrow morning: Grachev adjusts his balls while getting the paper

    Maybe the most pointless sports video ever made. Hysterical.

    I pretty much walk around with a constant urge to play Excitebike as it is.

    that music is straight from an 80s porno when the girl does the 5 minute striptease before they bone…. breathtaking
