McCarty on Vs....what happened?

Rate this topic

38 posts in this topic

I was watching Pitt and Ottawa on VS and I was looking forward to hearing Darren McCarty with the VS guys after the first period. They teased it, promised us DMac's commentary...and then when they cut to the intermission commentary, the announcers were laughing and joking about McCarty not being available and sending him to the penalty box. Any idea what happened? I love Mac and want the best for him and my worst nightmare would be that he showed up drunk to work and they wouldn't let him on air. Anybody hear any more on this?

I saw that too and was wondering what the deal was. Maybe he had to goto the bathroom?

check Jones (sp) guy he might have some bruises on his face... that could be a clue why Mac isn't there...

sorry if I sound like a nancy-boy about this, but Mac is kind of a hero of mine because I know what its like to deal with addiction issues in life. I want him to be okay, because I can (somewhat) relate to what he deals with and, yes, when something like that happens unexpectedly I worry that something bad is going on, because I have been there. And yes, I am more focused on the Wings winning tonight, I just watched VS to kill time before the game, was just curious and nervous...

They just made another reference to Mac when they showed that buffalo kid with a missing tooth.

Seriously. Any idea what the hell happened? He is still gone so that eliminates the bathroom break notion lol.

He's in the trunk of Claude Lemiuex's car right now most likely.

YOU STOLE MY IDEA!

If so, we don't need to worry. Mac will be able to punch his way out. I can't imagine Claude's car is any braver in a fight than Claude is.

LMAO!!! THAT is freaking rad. God, wouldn't it be great if somebody sent him that with a bow tied around it?

Well, whaddya know, I was watching the FSD feed tonight, and I was kinda bummed that I was going to miss D-Mac on VS., but I guess I didn't. I hope it's not a big deal...like Zetts said, if it was serious, I doubt they'd joke about it. Maybe he just had to pee really bad right then, lol.

I think D-Mac is over his addiction days. He went through it once and I have a feeling it's all he ever wanted to experience. He'll be fine, although I don't blame anyone for being worried. I am a little too.

:huh: What IS true? I'm praying for him right now.

I didn't say it was a "problem" for him again or anything like that, but he does still enjoy the 'ginger ale', as Mickey would say. Nothing wrong with that as long as he's put those demons fully behind him.

Thanks for the clarification, Matt. But speaking as a twelve-stepper myself, I haven't put anything behind me if I take even one more drink. Millions have learned the hard way that if you are truly addicted, there's no such thing as being able to drink moderately.

McCarty was probably unwilling to suck Crosby off like the other analysts always do, so they canned him.

Or he didn't genuflect as he passed the Cindy statue in the studio.

i don't think enough people really understand that. i see"tagged" d-mac pictures on facebook all the time. they are usually him at a bar or a house party, and that is a slippery slope. i hope everything is good with d-mac. alcohol can be the devil for alot of people.
