PHOTO: Jaromir Jagr's St. Patrick's Day-themed jersey is great
In celebrating St. Patrick's Day, Jaromir Jagr's Irish-themed warm-up jersey might be an all-time great.
Plenty of teams have their own St. Patrick’s Day weekend traditions. In the minors, a lot of clubs wear gimmick jerseys during the games to raffle off later, but in the big leagues they have to keep it professional between the whistles. That’s why some NHL clubs have gone to special jerseys to wear during warm ups.
There’s nothing terribly special about that unless everything aligns just right.
The Dallas Stars, who will wear green St. Patrick’s Day warm-up jerseys before Saturday night’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks, got a boost in the gimmick jersey department from one of the team’s big offseason acquisitions.
What happens when you combine Jaromir Jagr and green jerseys? Well, you get McJagger, of course.
It’s pretty safe to assume whose green threads will be most coveted at the Dallas Stars Foundation table and it probably isn’t Kari O’Lehtonen’s.
Maybe going overboard on the Irish schtick is growing tired, but it's all in the name of charity. This little number should do a lot of good.
Fun fact/Sad fact: There are people out there who think McJagger is the actual spelling of Rolling Stones’ front man Mick Jagger’s name. As in, “Is Mcjagger Ke$ha’s dad??”
