Jaromir Jagr's been on fire in his return to Pittsburgh, where his former home fans are booing him incessantly. He scored a brilliant goal and gave his trademark salute right at this gentleman in one of those light blue Sidney Crosby jerseys, who happened to be giving him the finger.

Jaromir Jagr’s been on fire through 30 minutes of his return to Pittsburgh, where his former home fans are booing him incessantly. He scored a brilliant goal and gave his trademark salute right at this gentleman in one of those light blue Sidney Crosby jerseys, who happened to be giving him the finger.

The light blue jerseys, particularly a Crosby 87, are sometimes seen as a mark of a new-era Penguins fan—the ones who weren’t fans during the terrible years between their two Cup eras. Ya know, exactly the kind of guy who can’t wait to boo the franchise’s best player not named Mario Lemieux…

Slightly better shot of guy below, Jagr kinda obscured though. Goal video below, plus another of a Pens fan crying. [UPDATE: FLYERS WIN! TALBOT ADDS EN GOAL! RECAP TOMORROWISH PROBABLY HAPPY NEW YEEAAHHHH!]
