    GV,

    By far the funniest thing I’ve seen on your show was your camera guy asking for relief in front of Wayne Gretzky. Here’s a sports legend who has endured punishing hits and fought through pain and your camera guy says his back hurts from holding the camera! LOL. Don’t want to be mean, but that is funny. Man Up camera dude, you were taping the Great One.

    this comment for wayne, the great one, how would you compare your influence on the game of hockey to other “great ones”, Jordan, Marino, and how they influenced their sports?

  • QOTD: Uh. No idea.
    Sounds like Wayne made some good business arrangements there if the wines are that good! He made me proud [again] to be an Edmontonian!

    Great show Gary. Glad to see Wayne didn’t settle on slapping his name on a bottle and watch them sell to his fans for the novelty of it. Good play not lowering your standards.

    Awesome show! I was a huge Wayne Gretzky fan during my college years. I became a big hockey fan in high school in the 70’s and when I went to college, this guy blew away the rest of the field!

    Nice touch on the donations to charity for the wine. I would like to try some of the Cab.

    QOTD – NO! I hope the Yankees never win another World Series.

    Wayne,

    QOTD: No. The Yankees won’t make the playoffs in 2009.

    By the way, are you still steamed at me?

    Now I hate you Gary V! It is so huge that you are sitting there drinking wine with the Great One. Congrats buddy. And Wayne, congrats on the great wine! Every time I skate I see you in my head. It must feel awesome to know you’ll never be less that Great!
    Plus, I loved it on that old training video you did where you said “Hey coach, where’s the steak?” when the coach is talking about the game day meal.
    Now you can say “Hey coach, where’s the Riesling?”.
    Good luck with your boys down there in Phoenix, you couldn’t have picked a tougher market.

  • Andy & Edie from MT

    Glad to see the 99 wines were of good quality, normally we wouldn’t buy a wine with a name on it assuming it’s not that good. We will definetly have to pick up the cab and reisling.

  • Here in Ontario we can pick up some of Gretzky’s wines at our local LCBO. It is actually a big “best” seller there.

    I tried the Meritage and enjoyed it. It was a very nice blend on Ontario red grapes.
