"I was on a dinner cruise around boston harbor a couple of summers ago and rene rancourt was there and I was like "HOLY SHIT THATS RENE RANCOURT!!!" my date (not a huge hockey fan) was like "uhhhh, who?"
I went up to him… told him that Ive watching him my whole life. he was stoked. Said that he didn’t think anyone recognized him anymore (this was before the 2011 playoffs and him getting huge again) we drank with him all night.. him and his wife was there…
he got WASTED and then sang the national anthem on the boat, everyone was going crazy and he even did the fist pump flash the 2 sign after.. ha… it was great.”
