What does Jaromir Jagr's mullet have to do with Jen's love of sports? Everything. In January 1996, Jen attended a Mighty Ducks of Anaheim game versus the Pittsburgh Penguins with her dad. The minute Jagr and his classic mullet hit the ice, she was entranced. After seeing (former Mighty Duck) Paul Kariya play that game, she was hooked. From that point on, she started attending more live sporting events, and her reaction would always be the same - come home and learn everything she could about the sport. To this day, hockey remains her number one sport, but she's got lots of love for all the rest. On SB Nation, Jen is currently the managing editor for Anaheim Calling (for Anaheim Ducks fans) and contributing news writer to SBN Los Angeles and SBNation.com.
