Jeremy Roenick Interview (pg. 2)

Simon: What has been your favorite moment of your career?
Jeremy Roenick: I think the most memorable moment was playing in the Olympics, playing the Canadian team in the gold medal game. Even though we came up short, but still, it was a rivalry of generations. The way the United States got to that elite level, where we can compete with the Russians, the Swedes, the Canadians. We made ourselves an international powerhouse and it all came together in 2002. All the years we built from the middle '80s. We finally caught up and we were in the spotlight. It was a one goal game with five minutes left, until Joe Sakic took over and that was it. But that was probably the most memorable moment for me.

Simon: What is your favorite road city to play in?
Jeremy Roenick: I would have to say Philadelphia. Playing there and now watching what it's like for other teams to play there it is a riot with the fans, it's very difficult. The toughest play for me to play in? I would say Detroit because they're just so good to play, you knew you had to be on your game to win.

Simon: When you're not playing or training. What do you do on your down time?
Jeremy Roenick: I play a lot of golf. Spend a lot of time with my kids. My kid's a big golfer, my daughter is an equestrian. She's the number one ranked equestrian in North America, so I'm on the road a lot with her. And we love to travel!

Simon: We have seen you do broadcasting work with The Best Damn Sports Show. Is there broadcasting in your future?
Jeremy Roenick: You know it's possible. I have a couple of opportunities that are going to open up to me. Whether it's going to be sports shows or analyzing, or me having my own show. radio is a big possibility, maybe Sirius Radio. Yeah I mean I'd like to be on TV in some aspect, so we'll see what happens. I'm still playing one more year, so hopefully that works out well.

Simon: Being from Boston, are you a big Patriots, Celtics and Red Sox fan?
Jeremy Roenick: Huge! I'm with all Boston teams. I'm a huge Patriots fan. I'm very disappointed my boy Brady is out for the year - it's going to be a long year for us.

    yes because it's awful and no nerd would even think of trying to join a cheerleading team. Also, it has teams and makes you pant if you aren't physically fit.

    yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think so since you have to practice a lot to get things right! If guys want to join cheerleading they can go right ahead if they enjoy it they can do whatever they want. I seriously don't know why it isn't in the Olympics it really should be
