Kick off 2018 with a very cold Jeremy Roenick in polar bear plunge

Before the Winter Classic, Jeremy Roenick participates in a New Year's tradition: the Polar Bear Plunge.

Have you ever wanted to witness Jeremy Roenick chow down on Nathan’s hot dogs? Perhaps you’ve wanted to see the former rugged star make a shocked face taking a dip into really, really cold water as part of a polar bear plunge?

OK, maybe those are highly specific scenarios, but as you can see in the video above, it’s some really amusing stuff as Roenick was around for the 2018 Winter Classic between the New York Rangers and Buffalo Sabres.

The longer version is above this post’s headline. If you want to jump to the plunge, a briefer clip is below.

(You’ll probably enjoy the full version, in my opinion.)
