Can’t Tarnish the Great One

from Michael Farber of Sports Illustrated,
There is a spurious notion floating in the NHL ether that if Wayne Gretzky bungles the Phoenix Coyotes coaching job, it will tarnish his legacy. To set things straight: Nothing can tarnish Gretzky's legacy. He is, with only mild argument from the Bobby Orr folks, the best player in the history of his sport. There is nothing on or off the ice he conceivably would do that would make his myriad accomplishments any less sublime, his image any less brilliant. As much as any athlete can be, Gretzky is smudge-proof.
