Jaromir Jagr has been my favorite hockey player ever since he told the world who his favorite hockey player is back when he was on the Bruins in 2013.
Safe to say Jaromír Jágr had the realest mullet in the game, no wonder why He said his favorite player was himself. pic.twitter.com/uIVvLeWTIV

Dude’s a walking power move machine, and he just swooned me twice over with his most recent escapade.
From Yahoo! News:
Recently, 43-year-old NHL legend Jaromir Jagr slept with an 18-year-old model. And while that’s really NBD—and none of our business—the story took a weird twist and became public knowledge after the girl that Jagr slept with took a picture of him sleeping after the deed was done. The woman—or someone associated with the woman—then threatened to sell it to the media unless he paid $2,000. She was prepared to do what other women have done to pro athletes in the past (hi, Julian Edelman and James Harden!) if he didn’t pay up.
Just one problem: Jagr DGAF. Additionally, he’s single so he didn’t have to try to hide the post-sex selfie from his wife or girlfriend. As a result, he had just one response for the blackmailer when she said she was going to put the photo up on the Internet for all to see: “I don’t care.”
The dude is single and nailed a Czech model who is 25 years younger than him. Why would he care if a picture of the aftermath got out? It wouldn’t be that out of character for Jags to buy a billboard in Times Square and put the picture up on that. Did she really think he’d pony up $2,000 to keep it hush-hush? Two grand can buy a lot of mullet cream for our boy, and he likes to keep his lettuce fresh.
And so the pic, as underwhelming as it is, went up.
Ageless Jagr is living life the right way.. 😂👌🏼 pic.twitter.com/1SJUJkfxZt

Well done, JJ. Well done.
The best part of the story? The extortionist got screwed by more than just Jagr.
After the woman let the photo get out, reports indicated that she is actually the one with everything to lose. She is reportedly dating Czech hockey prospect Domink Rudl—who has credited Jagr with being his idol—and almost immediately after the photo was released, it was everywhere.
27 years in the pros and one extortion attempt later — still nothing can stop Jagr. If I was him, I’d be my favorite player, too..
