Pierre McGuire gives Alec Martinez slap on the butt after interview (GIF)
Hope you weren’t expecting any displays of broadcasting professionalism from Pierre McGuire after the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup on Friday night.
The NBC broadcaster was on interviewing duties after the Kings won Game 5 3-2 in double overtime to clinch the Cup. McGuire had his chance to speak with the hero, Alex Martinez. After their interview, McGuire, who clearly considers himself to be “just one of the boys,” gave Martinez a slap on the butt.
McGuire used to play in college and was a scout/coach and later GM, so maybe he considers himself more part of the sport than media. Still, that was a little much. I think Martinez was even wondering what was going on. And nobody enjoyed that more than Pierre.
