Today I wanted to give the BarDown audience a sneak peek into a segment I have been working on with Cabbie this week.

It should air a week from today on SportCentre and of course be featured right here on BarDown as well.

For the past few days Cabbie and I have been in Washington taping a few segments. One will play on SportsCentre this evening and feature some of the Washington Wizards discussing the playoffs and possible matchup with the Toronto Raptors. Another is a segment with the legendary rapper NAS who is celebrating the 20th anniversary of his historic debut album Illmatic.

While we were here we also had a chance to tape a really fun skit with some members of the Washington Capitals. I don't want to give too much away about what we did or what you will see in a week, however I will share this one photo of Brooks Laich, Cabbie, Evgeny Kuznetsov and Dustin Penner.

I'm not going to explain why those guys were wearing those fantastic t-shirts, however I can tell you that Dustin planned on wearing his out to the bar later that night.

The guys were all amazing. We really can't say enough great things about Brooks Laich, he may be one of the most genuine people in the NHL and Dustin Penner has been a Cabbie Presents favourite for a long time.

His sense of humour is one of the best in the league. A great example of that is when he took to Twitter a few weeks ago when he first arrived in Washington and tweeted out that he needed a ride home from the grocery store.

The times we have featured Dustin on the segments he has always managed to steal the show. Here is a couple examples:

As well as this segment where he did not know that we were going to FaceTime him:
