RMNB readers Jessie M. and Kate H. were at Kettler Capitals Iceplex for Team USA’s Olympic orientation camp last week. Waiting around the rink to get autographs and photos with America’s best NHL players, they didn’t get a chance to meet Zach Parise, but they did take photos with Pierre McGuire.
So there’s that.
Yup, everybody’s favorite Russian-bashing, un-agile, Sidney Crosby-sympathizing, sideline reporter, Pierre McGuire, was in the house. In an email to RMNB, Kate tells us he couldn’t have been nicer.
When Jess asked for a photo, Pierre responded enthusiastically, “Absolutely!!” After the photo was taken, Pierre then asked Kate if she wanted a photo too. “Sure, I guess,” Kate responded.
The girls then say Pierre crouched down so that they were the same height in the photos. You can’t not have that face in frame. Pierre then gave them a goodbye hug and said, “See you ladies later. Have fun!”
These photos are not awkward at all.
Usually, we’d take this opportunity to thrash Pierre McGuire and call him names, but he was nice to Our People, so he gets a pass for now.
