Eden Prarie is a small city in Minnesota located just south of downtown Minneapolis. The town's newspaper, the Eden Prarie News, recently ran a story on Nick Leddy and the Chicago Blackhawks winning the Stanley Cup. Leddy was born in Eden Prarie and he gave an interesting interview about what it takes to win the Cup.
There's just one incredibly distracting problem. In the paper's article, they chose to spell Jaromir Jagr a bit differently, using "Yaromir Yagr" in both their print and digital editions of the article.
It's clear someone just listened to their tape recorder and quoted Leddy as they heard him. It's a simple mistake which could have been easily prevented by performing a quick Google search. Still, the typo is kind of hilarious because we've seen Jagr's name butchered repeatedly over the years despite the fact he's one of the most iconic players to ever skate in the NHL.

Honestly, I'm surprised they didn't do worse on his last name, if it was anything but on purpose. I'd expect at least an 'e' added.
@miendiem When I was young and playing NHL 94 (maybe it was 95, not sure) I'd always pronounce the "J" as a hard J. It became Jar-omir Jag-r. I thought the guy had the coolest name on the planet.
Later I learned I was wrong, but he still has one of the best names around.
