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.

    Of course we can! It's true that we're a little less strong physically, but we can. "Can't" means just that, we can't. And that's wrong. It's true we have to deal with all that physical pain (I can whine about it for agesss) and mental pain too. And that some of us cry easily. But that's because we feel pain! So although we are less strong physically as I said earlier, girls can also think up ways to surprise someone in a fight. And that's a good thing to do to someone who laughs at a girl and says they cant fight.

    Cheer-leading is a sport - most people think that it is not - but it is Yes it looks like they are just cheering on the football players - but their routines and being able to hold up girls over their head takes strength, and they work really hard to make everything look good.

    I liked cheering for the underdog, so I've always cheered for the Cavs. I'd like to see how this year's line-up goes, though our past best point guard left for the Celtics.  :/
