Am I the only one who thinks Roy comes off looking like a complete moron in that? Roenick made a comment about Roy's jock strap being up in the stands because he deked him out of it so badly in game 3 of their series, which Roy comes back and says he didn't hear him because he had his two Stanley Cup rings in his ears. Everybody still applauds Roy for saying to this day.
WHY THE **** WOULD YOUR CUP RINGS BE IN YOUR EARS?!?!
There's NOTHING even remotely clever or witty about that and the sports shows treat it like it was the burn of the century.
Sorry, that just drives me crazy every time TSN plays it, which is probably going to be far more frequently now that he's back in the NHL.
If you are offended by this post, it's probably because you're ugly.
