There’s something fitting about the sound “Yak” being associated with the sound “Jag,” but that could just be coming from someone who spends too much time at the pub. Anyway, today Nail Yakupov shared a picture of himself at 11-years old during the last lockout on Twitter, standing alongside then-NHL great Jaromir Jagr. I can’t believe Jagr is still in the league.
Really, the best part of the whole tweet is the wording though. If the picture’s not for you, I suspect you’ll enjoy the text.
That was 2004 -Jagr played in Russia , in Lockout time . And it’s me 11 years old Boy :) Good eh ?)))) twitter.com/Nail10_1993/st…
