TSN, NBC, and MLSE: Muzzle McGuire!

DETROIT - MAY 26:  Hockey analyst Pierre McGuire speaks onstage during the 2008 NHL Entry Draft Top Prospects Media Luncheon as part of 2008 NHL Stanley Cup Finals in Ambassador Ballroom at the Marriott Renaissance Center  on May 26, 2008 in Detroit, Michigan.  (Photo by Jim McIsaac/Getty Images)

Leaving his fellow uber-buffoons Tim McCarver and Dick (prime-time, baby!) Vitale behind in the cosmic dust, Pierre McGuire has elevated the level of douche-baggery to attain god-like status in the broadcast universe.

Beside interjecting usleless and pointless knowledge throughout a game, his unrelenting hyperbolic penetrating glimpses into the obvious are insulting.

Do I need this goof to always interpret what I just saw?

If I had a dollar for everytime McGuire said (during the olympics) that Rick Nash, Duncan Keith, Zack Parise, or Patrick Kane "Shows great skill!" I'd be driving a Porshe! 

So, burn one down, turn off the sound, play your favorite tunes; and, let TSN/NBC/Versus know that the ravings of this obnoxious lame buzz-kill are falling on deaf ears!

Where can I comment?
