Boston Bruins right wing Jaromir Jagr says he lost most of the day yesterday looking at old pictures of his mullet online. The future Hall of Famer said he started looking at photos around 11 a.m. and before he knew it, it was dinner time.
"I don't even remember how I got started," said Jagr. "I think there was a link for 'Jaromir Jagr's 38 Best Old Mullet Photos' or something off to the side of an article I was reading. One thing led to another and before I knew it, I had spend six hours looking at my old hairdo."
Jagr said it wasn't only the hair that drew him in, however.
"It was everything. My patterned, button-down shirts, the gold necklaces, the high-waisted, stone-washed jeans. Looking at me was basically like taking a time machine to the early 1990s," he said. "It was amazing. My old pictures are a time capsule of the pre-Internet age."
The former Penguins star says looking at his old photos did make him reconsider growing back his mullet.
"But I just don't think I have enough hair volume these days to pull it off to the same degree," he said. "Maybe 20 years from now, I'll still be playing somewhere and I'll be looking at pictures of my beard. Who knows."
Bruins left wing Brad Marchand also got lost looking at old pictures of himself online yesterday, but stopped when teammate Patrice Bergeron told him he was actually looking at pictures of sewer rats.
