Jaromir Jagr and the Sands of Time
Jaromir Jagr has cleared waivers and has been lent by the Calgary Flames to the HC Kladno in the Czech league. With Jagr's NHL career seemingly over, something has become true for the first time in my life...
I am now older than every player in the NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB. Heck, you can throw MLS and the CFL in for good measure. I've never been able to make this claim before, and going forward it will forever be true.
No matter how old I felt, I could always point to Jagr and say "he's older than me, and he's still playing in the NHL". It's the end of an era.
