Wayne Gretzky Denied Smooch from Wife on Camera at Caps-Flyers Game (Video)
Wayne Gretzky scored a record 894 times in the NHL, but he’s not so smooth when it comes to baseball. Dude couldn’t even get to first base with his wife last night.
Wayne and his wife, Janet, attended Game 4 between the Flyers and Capitals in Philadelphia on Wednesday. Don’t know why. Doesn’t really matter. What matters is that, when he noticed the CSN broadcast was showing them on TV, Wayne leaned in for a smooch. You know, to show The People that the King and Queen of Canada were still madly in love.
Unfortunately, Janet was having none of that sh*t. Maybe they had been arguing just prior to showing up on TV. Maybe Wayne had just eaten a blooming onion. Maybe she just doesn’t like smooching in public. Whatever the case, she wasn’t leaning in. So the Great One just stayed there, lips pursed, for what seemed like five minutes.
It was suuuper awkward. Take a look:
A few weeks ago Gretzky did an interview with the New York Times in which he lamented the style of hockey played today that stifles creativity and leads to a decrease in scoring.
Now you kind of have to wonder, was The Great One really talking about hockey?
