Checking In With Wayne Gretzky
It has been approximately a year since Wayne Gretzky left the public eye of the world of the National Hockey League.
Since then The Great One has kept pretty quiet. Oh sure, he's endorsed the new Wii hockey game and some green tea, but by his standards he seems to be anything but busy.
Pierre LeBrun of ESPN checked in with Wayne Gretzky this week. It seems Gretz is enjoying family time, high school sports and just being a hockey fan.
"I'm enjoying being on the sidelines right now. I really don't see myself, in the next little while, coming back. It's just one of those things where I love what I'm doing."
Neil Davidson of the Canadian Press also got Gretzky to talk.
"I wish I was 30 and Wayne Gretzky and I could go back and play in the NHL. It's the greatest game in the world and everything I have in my life is because of hockey. You know, everything happens for a reason in life and right now my cards are not for me to be in the game. I'm loving what I'm doing, I'm enjoying my life, I watch the game, I'm a huge fan.
Gretzky also talks about his children quite a bit with Davidson.
