Morning Line- Wayne Gretzky

“I’m a big believer that the Olympic Games is great for sports, I’m a big believer that the Olympics is great for our game and wonderful for our country. We rally around it, especially at this time of the world where there seems to be so much unrest away from the games, away from sports. Sports seems to bring people together and it brings the country together.

“I admit I don’t understand the business side of it, it’s way over my head. That’s something for the league, the owners and the union to figure out. But after watching the Canadian junior team play and seeing how exciting it was and how emotional it is for the country, Bob and I were talking and we want it. I don’t see any negatives about it other than the travel and the time commitment. I feel bad that these kids may not get the chance that we did.”

-Wayne Gretzky.  Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun has more on the Olympics talk.
