Hey look, it's Wayne Gretzky. This photo is 21 years old now proving marrying model/actress Janet Jones was no gamble.
The Gretzky wedding, like anything involving Gretzky, was bigger than life (click for video). It was Canada's royal wedding, with television coverage coast to coast and enough newspaper print to fill 100 scrapbooks. 1000s of people lined the streets.
So I'm going to the chapel in a couple of weeks, too. No, I ain't getting married! But my brother is. And I get to be the best man.
Today I leave on vacation. I am off hiking and camping through my usual stomping grounds, the Canadian Rockies, the first of two trips there. Then it is off to Edmonton so my girlfriend and her three kids can get some retail therapy. Then I'm going down to Vancouver just in time to throw on a tux, make a speech, and fly home.
To pass the time while I am away I have pre-scheduled daily posts with a very special and fitting feature. For the rest of the month we will be taking a look at hockey's famous brothers, complete with unique pictures and memories of each player.
I will have sporadic internet, but should there be any big news in the coming days, I will most likely not be posting on it until August.
So with that in mind. . . let's take a look at some of hockey's greatest brother combinations!
