Pleasant surprise while out golfing

Played golf yesterday with my dad at Pembroke (MA) Country Club, which is owned by Jeremy Roenick.

We got a bit logjammed at the turn and started a conversation with an older gentleman who happened to be standing there wearing a PCC shirt. The subject of hockey came up quickly and the man mentioned how much he missed the old Chicago Stadium. My dad said "Oh, you've been there?" to which the man replied "I have been to them all... Jeremy is my son."

Turns out that my dad and Mr. Roenick have a couple of mutual friends so I just sat and listened to them talk, but when I mentioned that I was a Kings fan Mr. Roenick sort of cringed... "So you got to witness the worst year of his career." I assured him that I knew the sucktitude of that season was a team effort and that I did not hold JR personally responsible.

Finally our turn on the tee came up and we went on our way, but it was kind of cool to spend a few minutes with Mr. Roenick.
