During Game 2 of the Rangers-Bruins Eastern Conference Semifinals series on Sunday, NBC's Pierre McGuire asked Rangers coach John Tortorella how to describe Ryan Callahan, who scored a goal in the first period to tie the game at one goal apiece. Tortorella's response was brief, and extremely descriptive.
"Well right now, that's a HUGE goddamn goal he scored in the first period."
McGuire then thanked Tortorella and immediately ended the interview, likely with the horror of realizing that New York's coach had sworn on national TV. There were no immediate apologies from the NBC crew, and they essentially called Tortorella a wild card. These things happen sometimes, and seeing McGuire immediately have to squirm his way out of an uncomfortable situation is always entertaining to watch.
1) Not a swearword to most people anymore (I'll withhold my personal feelings on this) 2) Those are taped, so it was OK'd by a producer 3) Those interviews are always very short 4) Tortorella is an ass and probably was trying to be an jerk.
Feel like it's worth noting NBC/Pierre always keeps those interviews with Tortorella to one to two quick questions because Torts (on television) has said he hates doing them. As you look at the video, Torts pretty much ends the interview by leaning away, not Pierre.They also aren't ever live.You need to find video of Tortorella saying, "I hate this. I hate it," to Pierre on national tv, this isn't too much.
