Roenick ‘slugs’ fan on golf course

Ex-NHL player Jeremy Roenick playfully punched a fan in the face on a golf course

One of the truest generalities in life is that when a man asks another man to punch him in the face, he usually gets punched in the face.

Hockey has added some civilization to the idea, but there's still plenty of not-exactly-discouraged punching in hockey, which partially explains why a hockey fan would want to get punched by retired hockey player Jeremy Roenick.

A group of young rascals found Roenick on the golf course and asked him to punch their friend because, well, that’s awesome. The story goes that Roenick lunged at the kid but didn't punch him — and they all just kept asking until he finally punched their willing friend in the face.

That most men make it to 30 is one of life's little miracles.
