The happiest moment of my childhood was getting these Wayne Gretzky street hockey shoes.
I am the only person I have ever known of who had a pair.
If there are others out there… speak up.
Mark showing up to his first ice hockey practice with no jersey to cover his pads and watching his lanky form skate around the hockey rink with the authority and grace of a Russian ballerina is one of the most ridiculous/hilarious childhood memories I have.
Him never letting me wear these or his Gretsky blades, is one of the most bitter.
The skinniest right wing/defense man that Arizona ice hockey has ever seen.
