Upon hearing the news of Jeremy Roenick announcing his retirement, we couldn't help but look back to the key moment of his career, the moment that truly put the center of the Chicago Blackhawks on the map. Yes, we're talking about NHL '94 on Sega Genesis.
Roenick was a beast in every sense of the word, nearly impossible to take down, dished out murderous body checks and flashed a one-timer that went through torsos; all this with a relatively modest rating of 87 out of 100. He quickly became one of the most feared names in homes across the nation, quite possibly only taking a back seat to the immortal Tecmo Bowl Bo Jackson.
To appropriately honor this man, er video game man, take some time today to abruptly check a random co-worker into a wall.
Enjoy the tribute.
A snapshot of our Forgotten Timeline 1986-2006, the Hernia recognizes one of the bigger moments of the mid 90's, the stunning arrival of video game Jeremy Roenick.
And last but not least, it's the beginning of absolute dominance. The 9:29 mark (37 seconds into the video) says it all. The organ music barely finishes playing, only Roenick could pull that off.
