​The life of a hockey announcer must be nice, right? Of course, aside from the possibility of being struck by errant pucks flying toward you at top speeds. Just ask NHL analyst Pierre McGuire during Monday night's Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Tampa Bay Lightning game after this insane camera angle shows he was nearly decapitated by that hunk of rubber.

And RIGHT into the camera! Could it have been closer? ​​


How about a good pun for the folks at home?

McGuire has a new lease on life now, so tune into the broadcast of Blue Jackets vs. Lightning to hear a livelier play-by-play from the man behind the glass.
