(Sportsnet.ca) – “When I was seven years old, I started doing squats. I did 1,000 a day, every day. And when you do that daily – now people work out, but back then nobody really did – I just skyrocketed. For three to four years, I played with my age group, and two years later I was playing with [guys] four years older than me and I was still better than them.” – Jaromir Jagr
I don’t really need to say anything about Jaromir Jagr’s greatness. We’ve heard all the stories, we see all the huge numbers. He’s a legend and that’s it. One of my favorite players of all-time with a mullet the gods themselves couldn’t shape. We should all be thankful we’ve been able to watch him play in the NHL for the past 58 years.
In honor of his 45th birthday today I’ve assembled a nice collection of his best mullet shots. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the greatest hockey hair in the history of hockey hair.
