Jaromir Jagr, Not American, Still a Hero


This picture wasn’t worth $2,000 to Jagr.

Jaromir Jagr is just a better man than most. Proof:

According to Blesk, a Czech tabloid, a model named Catherine from Moravia took a selfie in bed as Jagr slept next to her. The image had been making the rounds on Czech social media. Someone came across the photo, and had the bright idea to attempt to extort 50,000 crowns (or roughly $2,000 U.S.) from Jagr or else the photo would be released to the media.

So the photo was shopped to the media, and on Sept. 17 Nova.cz published the altered photo that the blackmailer had been using as “proof” that they had the image, presumably the one presented to Jagr.

Alas, there was one catch for this criminal mastermind:

Jagr. Doesn’t Care.

He literally told the blackmailer to do whatever he wanted with the photo. And so it hit the Czech media, and it was published in several European publications, and Jagr just keeps on Jagr’ing.

That’s awesome. Jaromir Jagr is the man. Like for real, can you be cooler than him? I mean sure, he had two Cups and a scoring title before she was born, but that’s not the point here. He’s Jaromir Jagr, and his life is awesome.
