Coach Bruce Boudreau said he opted to not watch HBO's "24/7" series on the Capitals and Penguins last night -- "It's probably one of those things that you'd watch if you're on a 10-game winning streak, but we aren't," he said -- but there was a clip of one of his locker room speeches that aired on TSN this morning.
And Boudreau's mother, Theresa, who is in her mid-70s and lives in Toronto, caught the excerpt. She was none too happy.
"My mom already called me about how many F-bombs I used," Boudreau said. "It was a passionate speech. It wasn't anything that I'm sitting there and manufacturing up the word just to say the word. When you're talking with passion, I'm not sure what's coming out of my mouth, quite frankly. I know the ideas, but that's what came out."
New York Jets Coach Rex Ryan might be able to sympathize. After the premiere of HBO's "Hard Knocks" series this summer, Ryan said his mother called and told him she was disappointed in his language.
