No further context was given as to how Roenick obtained said fan’s number, or to whom the call was placed.
I hate to be scooped on the JR phone call game, though. So now might be a good time to remind you of when, two years ago, Roenick absolutely flipped out at me about fan response to comments he made on douchebag Jay Mohr’s show.
But, what I didn’t post at the time was the follow-up voicemail he left asking me not to be a “hater.” So here it is, from September 15, 2011:
That probably never would’ve seen the light of day (except for when I whip it out drunk to show it off to friends– the voicemail, that is)… but I’m competitive like that and hate getting scooped on vindictive Jeremy Roenick voicemails. That’s a territory I’m not willing to cede.
Have to agree with Smitty over at Barstool, though– gotta respect JR’s perseverance and caring to call fans and bloggers and leave angry voicemails. It takes a special type of sociopath to do that. And I like it.
