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:
