Photo: Jeremy Roenick is ‘playing hurt’ too

Apr 30, 2014, 8:59 PM EDT

Every year, the postseason brings with it stories of people fighting through pain. Players often grit their teeth through ghastly injuries, sometimes while taking heat for poor play that might stem in part from those physical limitations. Even referees show moments of significant toughness.

Apparently at least some of the analysts are willing to deal with being less than 100 percent. Anson Carter tweeted a photo of fellow NBC analyst Jeremy Roenick making a point to show up after knee surgery:

Considering how Roenick mixed grit with talent during his playing days, it probably shouldn’t be too surprising.

    Roenick is a tough SOB

    Hope he doesn’t cry tonight.

    Would like to see him take a few nights off!

    Oh, hey, look. Roenick wants attention again. I suppose that makes sense. It’s been, what, three hours since someone asked for his opinion? Impressive he held out that long. What a trooper.

    He would be one guy I would want in alley with me in a rumble…

    I’m sure that’s less painful than the crosscheck Feathstone gave him.

    That looks like a lot of Oxy to ease the pain.

    This might sound strange but the mobile app is missing the PFT section. The whole line and I swear I didn’t do it.

    I like jr most of the time. Much better than milbury or Pierre

    Still my favorite Blackhawk. The organization lost a decade after trading JR for Alexi Zamnov.

    Maybe he should of did that when he was playing.
