    Phenomenal goal and assist. I almost choked up watching that. Seeing two of the greatest, back when that world, our world, still existed. I had the privilege of seeing Gretzky play in person a few times back in my years in L.A. Even at that point in his career he made it look like he was a man among boys...

    With hockey close to returning, here are Mario Lemieux highlights. Being from Pittsburgh obviously I'm partial toward Lemieux but there's no question Wayne Gretzky was the best offensive hockey player ever, the Babe Ruth of his sport. Mario suffered a lot of injuries, notably severe back problems and a bout with cancer, but he was also like Gretzky a hockey genius who could see the ice like no others and at 6' 4" a physical freak as well. He made it look easy. It was a privilege to watch him play for the Penguins and he's still a quiet titan of the community as the owner of the team.
