Saturday, 400 raucous Caps fans packed the downstairs basement of the Iron Horse for RMNB Party 10. But little did we know that a two-time Stanley Cup champion and Emmy-winning journalist would be randomly chilling upstairs.
NBC Sports’ Pierre McGuire, whom, sure, we’ve had our difference with in the past, came to the Iron Horse to grab a few drinks, catch the game, and check out the party.
After one of our readers tipped us off, Peter and I walked upstairs and introduced ourselves. We took a photo and posted it on Twitter. And then a steady stream of readers came up to meet Pierre. Like there was a giant line. He was literally the nicest person, taking photos, and talking hockey with anyone who greeted him.
But the best part came later.
