I recently went to my first playoff game – Game 3 of the Flyers-Capitals series in Philadelphia – and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life.
Besides being in the famous Philadelphia crowd and seeing my team win, the experience was made even more amazing when Pierre McGuire tossed me a puck during a stoppage in play.
During the next intermission, I had a nice, quick conversation with him and thanked him for the souvenir. He is a class guy all the way, and one of the best commentators in the game today.
Thanks, Pierre, for making my first playoff game even more special than I could ever imagine.
