JR Moment #9

Jeremy Roenick's presence at the All-Star game always made it that much better. Whenever he would play in the game he would usually be the one wearing the mic and talking to the announce team during the game.

When Minnesota hosted the 2004 All-Star Game JR made his mark not only for his words, but for his skills in the accuracy shooting contest. Before going up to shoot, Roenick publicly apologized to referee Lane Angus for throwing a water bottle at him in a previous Flyers game. Call it good karma, Jeremy Roenick went on to hit 4/4 in the accuracy shooting competition right after his apology.

As a side note after watching that video. Can the NHL please bring Gary Thorne and Bill Clement back to the broadcast booth?
