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?

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.

I highly doubt they'd be joking about an actual problem. Don't worry about it.

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.

Not true.


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

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

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.
