Erin Andrews... Excuse me... The Erin Andrews sat down with the Chicago Tribune the other day and weaved some yarns about her experiences and encounters with some of the greats of sport. Naturally, Jeremy Roenick was part of the bunch. This little snippet, sent in by our own WufPirate, gives us a sampling of Roenick's ways with the ladies.
"One of then first interviews I ever did was with Jeremy Roenick, and he had been cut from lip to cheek by a skate or stick. At the intermission, he was still bleeding pretty good. I get very queasy at the sight of blood, which is odd, considering hockey was my first sport. So I say: "OK, guys, I'm here with Jeremy Roenick,'' and I look at him and say: "Oh, my God!'' I totally spaced out and forgot that he had scored two goals. It was uncomfortable and I didn't know what to say. JR's such a good guy. He just says: "It's gross, huh?''
That line can work miracles. Historians believe Abraham Lincoln said that one infamous night, getting five telegraph numbers in under sixty seconds.
