Tim Leone, blogging for the Patriot News, captured as he always does the flavor of the moment in Harrisburg, Pa., yesterday, where Caps’ head coach Bruce Boudreau was honored alongside Bears’ GM Doug Yingst. The Dauphin County Commissioners declared Wednesday Bruce Boudreau Day in the county. Bears’ GM Yingst was also honored for his years of service to his community.
Gabby the stand-up comedian was in good form for the occasion.
“I can honestly say that I never used steroids,” he cracked.
Bears’ winger Louis Robitaille attended the ceremony, which, Leone pointed out, “set up an easy one-liner when Commissioner George Hartwick said that Boudreau’s recognition also included a get out of jail free card for the day.
“I’ll give it to Louis,” Boudreau quipped.
