Dear TSN commentator Pierre McGuire:
Like many Canadians, we at Torontoist were ecstatic to see Jeff Carter and our national junior team beat Russia 6-1 to win the Gold medal in last night’s World Junior Tournament. It was, without doubt, a joyous occasion for all Canadians. But as we angrily walked home from our local sports establishment, we wondered, “Why are we angrily walking home from our local sports establishment? Shouldn’t this be a time to rejoice with a few bubbly-pops?” The reason we were so angry, Pierre, is because of your incredibly inane commentary. You are a pimple on the face of Canadian sport. Does any hockey fan in the country enjoy your gruff, opinionated, baseless and continual rants all game? We felt as though we were watching the broadcast with a drunken frat boy. How you are even employed in the first place is beyond us. Don Cherry may be considered a bigot, but at least he wears sharp suits and knows when to shut up. You’re a disgrace.
