Talk about foreshadowing! This is truly an amazing photo of the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
This photo goes back to the year 1972. Twelve year old Wayne Gretzky meets his idol, Gordie Howe, then the undisputed greatest player in the game. Howe seems to take a liking to the kid, and gives him the legendary "Mr. Hockey" hook.
Little did they know on that particular night that their careers and their lives would be so intertwined.
The photo was taken at the 1972 Kiwanis "Great Men of Sports" Dinner in Brantford, Ontario. This photo was taken by the late Jack Bowman of the Brantford Expositor.
