Michael Buffer got fans ‘ready to rumble’ before Stanley Cup Final Game 1.
The Boxing announcer fired up the crowd before Golden Knights faced the Capitals last night.
It was Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Vegas Golden Knights and the Washington Capitals at T-Mobile Arena, the first round of a heavyweight title bout.
“Let’s get ready to rumblllllllle!”
“And now, hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, wearing steel gray with black, gold and red trim … your Vegas Goldennnnnnnn Knights!”
He drew out the names of coach Gerard Gallant and the first five starters.
“And in goal …”
It was hard to hear even Buffer introduce goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury amid the crowd noise.
“These are your Vegas Golden Knights,” Buffer said. “Now tell me. What time is it?”
“Knight time!” the fans answered.
“What time is it?”
Oh, they were ready to rumble.
The Knights beat the Caps 6-4 in Game 1 and are just three wins away from winning the Stanley Cup!
Congrats to my song Drake’s officiating mentor and friend, NHL Linesman # 83 Matt MacPherson from Antigonish being assigned to work in the Stanley Cup Finals!
Matt’s a class act and a great role model for the upcoming referees and linesman in Nova Scotia, he worked Game 1 last night!
GO KNIGHTS and congrats Matt!
