Wayne Gretzky- 30 For 30 On ESPN

from Peter Berg at ESPN,

My relationship with Wayne goes back to the 1990s when he invited me to play in his softball tournament in Brantford, Ontario. He wanted to get some actors in the game and I was a big hockey fan, having played it growing up in Chicago. I thought it would be a small game, but there were about 20,000 people there. First play of the game, I got a grounder at shortstop and threw out the runner and the crowd started booing me. Turns out it was Gordie Howe. I was humiliated. That began my personal relationship with Wayne.

continued and the video below is an expert of Kings Ransom which debuts on ESPN tonight at 8:00pm ET.
