Questions For Gretzky In Turin

from Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports,
His arrival will be a media circus, not just in Canada, where he is a near incomparable hero, but around the globe. It is the last thing hockey needs. It is the last thing the Olympics needs. It is the last thing anyone wants. But the questions are as enormous as they are serious, and while Gretzky has not been charged with anything, he will be required to speak. Where did his wife get half a mil to gamble? Residuals from "Police Academy 5"? How believable is it that a former Hollywood starlet-turned-suburban-homemaker is the high-stakes sports gambler and not her ultra-competitive husband? How could Gretzky's wife and friend be caught and he not be involved? Just as Tocchet and Gretzky allegedly asked about the authorities, Gretzky will now be asked himself what he knew about the gambling operation, and how (and when) did he know it?
