So, Pierre Dislikes Climbing Over the Boards

“Hnnnngggh” -Pierre McGuire

I figure I should probably say something about this picture I posted floating around the internet’s most hallowed corners.

I was in attendance at the United Center in Chicago for Game 5 and during the 1st period, I saw Pierre McGuire “climbing” (I use the term loosely) over the boards to get off the ice, presumably for a potty break. I instantly died laughing. I tried to grab my camera to capture this amazing moment, but wasn’t fast enough.

Flash forward to the 3rd period.

I had been keeping an eye on Pierre ever since that moment because I wanted to make sure I captured it the next time it happened. I see him shuffling along the ice heading back towards his little glass box and got prepared. I snapped about a dozen pictures in under 2 seconds of him getting over the boards. I was laughing so hard while taking them that the last 3 or 4 were unsalvageable because I was shaking so hard with laughter.

So, enjoy this. I know I have.

UPDATE: Saw a photoshop of this picture of Pierre “escaping jail” by @michaelFHurley (I’ll post it later), so please, if you want to photoshop Pierre, DO IT. Email your ‘shops to me at kelly.t.reardon at gmail dot com.

UPDATE 2: Deadspin picked this up. They contacted me to grab all the pictures and make the wonderful GIF below. Thanks guys!
