This video has: JR in green suit, NHL 94 references, Tappen gaming

1 Comment

Jeremy Roenick has gone all-out for NBC Sports videos, but he was truly in elite form for All-Star weekend.

While certain moments of Roenick in a green suit might be filed under “Things You Can’t Un-See,” this video is a true gem for a few reasons.

  • Kathryn Tappen is the person gaming as Roenick goes Into the EA Hockeyverse, as a PS4 controller is used to play both “NHL 94” and “NHL 19.”
  • JR is definitely Dad Spider-Man, right?
  • Again, there were references to Roenick being really good in those 16-bit EA hockey games, by way of Vince Vaughn in “Swingers.” This is virtually always a good thing.
  • Roenick provides some goal celebrations and slapstick comedy.
  • Green. Suit.

Overall, it’s a lot to absorb, so enjoy.

Also, you will likely quite enjoy the 2019 All-Star Skills event tonight, and probably not come across as much nightmare fuel. Enjoy that on NBCSN on Friday.

Here’s the “Silicon Valley” riff that was referenced. Very cool:
