Somehow I missed “this story about the KHL and Jaromir Jagr”:http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/02/sports/playmagazine/112Russia.html in the most recent issue of the New York Times sports magazine, Play. Life being what is, I just recycled all of last week’s papers without even knowing of its existence.
(Somewhere, one of our younger readers is asking, “Why does he care about having the magazine when he can read it online? Who reads anything on actual paper?” These are the type of questions that keep me awake at night)
Regardless, I continue to be fascinated by the Big Fella, as I always have been. I realize most of you will say the Rangers are doing just fine without him, and I’m not in a position to disagree. But he remains a compelling figure, and will likely go down as a pivotal player in the team’s history.
Update, 9:20 a.m.: Alert reader “Forechecker” informs me that the story doesn’t appear until this Sunday, so there will be no chasing after the recycling truck
More from practice later…
