Jeremy Roenick "Go Canada?"

I think the first autograph I got from a hockey player was from Jeremy Roenick many years ago.
"I always feel that my job is selling the sport. That's always my job to try to create a buzz to get people talking about the game — whether it's positive or whether it's just acting like a complete idiot. Whatever you can do to bring attention to your game, I think that's a positive thing."
Roenick always has something interesting to say, this time regarding the team selection for Team USA at the Olympics:
"It would be a travesty if I'm not (on the team). I know they want a youth movement, and they need to have one, but it'd be disrespectful of the guys who have gotten Team USA to this point internationally."

Roenick, 35, told The Times that if he doesn't make the cut, Team USA "better hope that I don't get a job as a commentator on NBC for [the Games], or it'd be 'Go Canada' all the way, and I don't want that."
That would definitely be entertaining...hearing Roenick cheering for Team Canada.
