Jaromir Jagr distributes kisses freely at exhibition tennis match in Prague (PHOTOS)

Jaromir Jagr is in the Czech Republic right now, playing for and presiding over HC Kladno, but even though he's wearing multiple hats, he's still making time for shenanigans. On Monday, the day after Jagr notched a hat trick in a visit to Sparta Prague, Jagr and girlfriend Inna Puhajkova took in an exhibition tennis match in the city featuring Czech native and world No. 8 Petra Kvitova and world No. 2 Maria Sharapova.

But he wasn't just a spectator in the event. Jagr also did his fair share of kissing.

After Kvitova and Sharapova finished their one-set match, Kvitova switched off for world No. 17 Lucie Safarova , then sat down with Jagr and his girlfriend. At this point, someone fired up the Kiss Cam and hit Jagr and Kvitova with it.

They obliged.

Granted, when you kiss another woman and your girlfriend witnesses it, it's always a wise idea to even things out by kissing her immediately afterward. So Jagr did this as well.

So let's recap: Jagr scored a hat trick, then heads on over to the tennis court and kisses his country's best tennis player and a former "Miss Internet" in the span of a minute.

All in all, I'd say it was a successful visit to the nation's capital.

But don't envy Jagr too much, because there's a pretty good chance this moment gets him and his girlfriend sick. Less than a week earlier, Kvitova withdrew from a tournament with a virus and was on bed rest right up until she dragged herself out of bed to appear in this event.

It was a very mischievous kiss cam. Just prior to forcing Jagr to kiss two women, it landed on two women, who kissed each other at 0:45 of this video just to make the damn thing go away.

Jagr's kiss convention immediately follows, as does the appropriate amount of whistling and applause, but in some deft work by the camera crew, they miss it completely, and only return to the jumbotron when the Kiss Cam has moved on to two people who aren't legends of Czech sport. Lame.
