Jaromir Jagr Has The Flu, Told Reporters "I Feel Like Shit" But Will Play In Game One Anyway.


From WEEI:
“I feel like [expletive], man,” Jagr said after practicing on the third line with Chris Kelly and Kaspars Daugavins.  “It’s the strongest flu I’ve ever had,” he said. “I couldn’t do anything.

The 41-year-old said he wishes the the playoffs would begin on Thursday, but that he’s hoping to feel better by Wednesday night. He’s still expected to be in the lineup for Game 1 against the Maple Leafs.

Let me start with the disclaimer that I dont have a press pass, so I wasnt actually there.  But I can safely assume the expletive he used was "shit."  Well, he may have said, "ass."  That is a popular expletive used to explain how you feel when sick as well.

Anyway, Im getting off track.

I really hope people at the Garden should chant, "fuck the flu, fuck the flu" anytime he touches the puck.  This dude is a gamer and deserves a good ball washing.

I guarantee if Stephen Drew ever gets the flu, the dude will probably miss at least a month.  Jaromir Jagr has the "strongest" flu he's ever had and will still play in Game 1.  Dude is pissa.
