I’m convinced that 30 years from now, I will be writing this exact same blog.
Although Jaromir Jagr’s days in the NHL seem to be behind him (I rule out nothing when it comes to this man), that hasn’t stopped the 47-year-old hockey legend from lacing ‘em up and scoring goals.
Playing in the Czech Republic for Rytíři Kladno of Tipsport Extraliga, a team which he is also the owner of, the unofficial eighth wonder of the world scored yet another goal on Friday.
Ageless F Jaromir Jagr (47) @68Jagr scored a goal in the Czech TOP league today for his @RytiriKladno. His first goal in the Czechoslovakian league (it was communist regime at that time) came in October 1988. So his first and last (so far) goal: difference 31 years....

Yes, you read that correctly. Jagr’s last goal in the Czech TOP league preceded the Czech Republic entirely.
Jagr has said he wants to play past 50, and I’m not going to be the person to tell him he can’t.
And considering he owns the hockey team he plays for, I don’t think anybody will.
