Born the product of a bottle of smugglers cove and a 6 year old condom, Jaroslav's parents regretted not having an abortion almost immediately. Weighing 43 pounds at birth, Jary was the heaviest baby to be born in whatever country he comes from. He began playing hockey at the age of 19, after flunking out of high school and losing his 4th consecutive hot dog eating contest. His father, who is a rich elastic salesman paid jaroslavs way into the NHL, where the poor bastards in Buffalo now call him their own. "He doesn't mind throwin in the odd roast chicken gumbuster" said teammate Ryan Miller, who is also a worthless peice of shit. This year it is expected that Spacek will somehow again go unnoticed as far as his absolute uselessness is concerned,and he quotes " I sleep with my coach, so that's good." Thank's for everythin Jary, you fat, malodorous child molesting gumbuster.
