I sent Pea a picture of my sister and Wayne she had taken yesterday at some shindig. Pea had NO IDEA who he was.
Suck it. Why would a kid growing up in a region where professional hockey is NON EXISTANT be required to know what Wayne Gretzky looks like? Especially since he looks like fucking Spock these days. It's not like I didn't know who he was. One million dollars says you don't even have the slightest clue who either Pelé or Lionel Messi are, and they are recognized worldwide by at least a billion more people than your Canadian hero.
