    Happy trails to Rene Rancourt, who’s retiring at the end of this season after 42 years as the Boston Bruins’ anthem singer #TSNHockey #FistPump [​IMG]

    It’s a sad day in Bruins history. I don’t know the Bruins without him singing the anthem for the big game

    Might as well just record his version of the US and CA national anthems and play them over the PA system before each game. Hell, keep the video of one of his renditions and show that on the video boards and it'll be like he never left.

    God dammit they make it the makeup game for the blizzard? Half the folks who had tickets for that sold them with the storm looming.

    Not sure if I put this in the brush with celebrity thread, but i sat next to Rene at Casey's Diner a couple years ago.

    He is the only person I've ever seen order the pie there.

    He sang the anthem at my friend's wedding in the summer of 2014. He brought his Stanley Cup ring and must have taken a million pictures with everybody there.

    I'm quite certain he'd sing the anthem in the playoffs.

    My buddy looked into getting him to do just that. Apparently he was quite expensive and demanded an open bar for himself.

    Yeah that's part of the deal. He sang at a friend of mines wedding in 2009. He charged $500 to show up and the deal is he drinks and eats for free. He's a really good guy, hung out most of the night bull shitting with everyone and taking pictures. He found the couple tables in the back full of people you could tell really didn't know anyone there and were thrown together and entertained them all night.

    Film some 3D footage of him this year and make a hologram from it. Run the hologram starting next season. I don't want anyone else.

    Perfect year for them to bring the Cup home again. Need as many more games as possible.

    I'm 38. Next season is going to be weird.

    You can get his whole Orchestra. Not putting the link here as I think it has his home phone. We interviewed him when we were getting married, back before you could listen to a band on the internet. Most of the bands we considered told us where they'd be playing at weddings the next couple of weekends and we'd show up dressed nicely and listen for awhile. Rene insisted we come to his house (nice place) and he'd play us a video of the band (so you knew you were getting his best performance). He did do a couple bars of Oh Canada for us.

    Damn. That's a lot. I was told $500 by the bride. That's probably what they told her.

    Hell, pay me $500 and let me eat and drink for free all night and I'll spend the night bullshitting with people too. And I'm an anti-social anxiety having motherfucker, motherfucker.

    And on the day Rene Rancourt announced his retirement the Bruins showed a video tribute to . . . . Clode.
