During the podcast, Roenick described a summer vacation he took in Portugal with his wife and NBC Sports studio host Kathryn Tappen. He told a story of how at least one hotel guest approached Roenick to ask if the three were together. “I play it off like we’re all going to bed together every night, the three of us,” Roenick said. “If it really came to fruition, that would really be good. But it’s never going to happen.” Later during the same discussion, Roenick said that his wife and Tappen are close friends and he praised Tappen’s professionalism. “Kathryn Tappen is one of the most professional … sports personalities that I know. She is true blue one of my favorite people in the world.”

Later in the podcast, Roenick discussed the physical appearance of fellow NBC hockey analyst Patrick Sharp. “He is so beautiful, I’d have to think about it if he asked me,” Roenick said. “I wouldn’t say no right away.” Roenick went on to describe Sharp as “one of the greatest, greatest guys on the planet” and “one of my best friends,” pointing out that the two had been teammates on the Flyers. Roenick: “I think he’s great. I think he’s been great for NBC. 

Jokes like that aren’t going to fly with big media companies like NBC Sports.  They have too much on the line and don’t want to deal with the headaches that come along with it.

Suspended, no pay, we’ll figure out what to do about it later.  The reality is if Tappen and Sharp don’t care then the rest of us shouldn’t either.
