During his appearance on Spittin’ Chicklets, Roenick talked about a trip to Portugal that he took with his wife and studio host Kathryn Tappen. He judged Tappen’s appearance and joked about the three having sex together.
“If it really came to fruition, that would really be good, but it’s never going to happen,” Roenick said.
Later in the show, Roenick called fellow analyst Patrick Sharp “so beautiful” and said “I’d have to think about it if he asked me. … I wouldn’t say no right away.” He then appeared to compare Sharp’s appearance with his and Carter’s.
“It’s good to have a beautiful face that talks well that knows the game because it’s totally the opposite when me and Anson get on there,” Roenick said.
He also called Sharp, a former teammate, “one of the greatest, greatest guys on the planet” and said, “I think he’s been great for NBC.”
