Here's Pierre McGuire and Doc Emrick devouring Primanti Bros. (Video)

NBC sent NHL play-by-by announcer Mike “Doc” Emrick and “Between The Benches” analyst Pierre McGuire to famous Pittsburgh sandwich shop Primanti Bros. this week for a special feature during the Stanley Cup Final between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Nashville Predators.

Puck Daddy is proud to present a brief review of how it went.

PIERRE: “DOKKENEDDIE, PITTSBURGH IS THE COUNTY SEAT OF ALLEGHENY COUNTY LOCATED AT THE CONFLUENCE OF THE ALLEGHENY MONONGAHELA AND OHIO RIVERS AND WAS NAMED IN 1758 BY WILLIAM PITT WHO AT THAT POINT WAS THE FIRST EARL OF CHATHAM.”

DOC: “Oh my, neon!”

PIERRE: “DOKKENEDDIE PRIMANTI BROTHERS IS A CHAIN OF SANDWICH SHOPS FOUNDED IN 1933 BY JOE PRIMANTI ALONG WITH HIS BROTHERS DICK AND STANLEY, WHO WERE BORN IN WILMERDING PENNSYLVANIA, FORMER HOME OF THE WESTINGHOUSE AIR BRAKE COMPANY.”

PIERRE: “DOKKENEDDIE THIS IS THE EXACT STOOL I USED TO SIT ON WHEN I WAS HAVING LUNCH WITH THE GREAT SCOTTY BOWMAN THE NINE-TIME STANLEY CUP WINNING COACH WHO GOT HIS START WITH THE QUEBEC JUNIOR CANADIENS OF THE QUEBEC JUNIOR LEAGUE IN 1956 AND I OF COURSE WAS HIS TRUSTED ASSISTANT ON THAT GREAT 1992 STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM HERE IN PITTSBURGH THAT FEATURED THE GREAT MARIO LEMIEUX ONLY 13 YEARS BEFORE SIDNEY CROSBY MADE HIS NHL DEBUT AS A MEMBER OF THESE SAME PITTSBURGH PENGUINS.”

DOC: “Oh, my! Pirates!”

DOC: “The National Hockey League season begins in October, at month best known for the ghoulish charms of Halloween and its scourge of evil witches. But now, in the final round of play in this 2016-17 season, our attention turns to a different kind of witch: The sandwich, like the ones here at Primanti Bros., located in a metropolitan area where three rivers come together to form the wet girders of the Steel City and…”

SANDWICH GUY: “Please, sir, this grill is very hot and I need to concentrate.”

DOC: “Oh my! It would be quite a task to waffleboard that away. We take you down the bar to where Pierre McGuire is standing by. Pierre?”

PIERRE: “DOKKENEDDIE PRIMANTI BROTHERS SANDWICHES START WITH TWO INCH-PLUS PIECES OF SOFT ITALIAN BREAD AND THEN PILED UP MEAT LIKE KOLBASSI OR CORNED BEEF OR PASTRAMI PERHAPS FROM THE SMALLMAN STREET DELI ON MURRAY AVENUE AND THEN COLE SLAW THAT IS MUCH MORE THE AMERICAN VARIETY THAN THE GERMAN KRAUTSALAT AND THEN FRENCH FRIES THAT ARE IDAHO RUSSETS FARMED FROM AROUND BOISE OR MERIDIAN IDAHO.”

(This is no doubt a moment of Zen for many of you.)

DOC: “And the chewing … has ……… stopppppppppped.”

SANDWICH GUY: “Hey guys, what did you think? Describe it in one word.”

DOC: “Piquant.”

PIERRE: “SIDNEY CROSBY A PRODUCT OF SHATTUCK-SAINT MARYS IN FARIBAULT MINNESOTA AND THE GREAT RIMOUSKI OCEANIC OF THE QUEBEC MAJOR JUNIOR HOCKEY LEAGUE.”

SANDWICHES: “Honestly, would have preferred Brian Boucher.”

(Annnnnd scene.)
