Wayne Gretzky Might Be the Best at Everything Ever

This is starting to get ridiculous. I mean, it's really getting out of hand. There is, apparently, nothing that Wayne Gretzky has ever tried to do that he hasn't been wildly successful with. I'm beginning to think he received straight A+'s in school and could own the world if he really wanted to.

Of course you know that he was the best hockey player to ever play the game. That's a given. You also may have heard that he was really good at making a daughter. OK, so the guy can do a couple things better than everyone else, right?


We might have to employ scientists to investigate, but Wayne may be the best human at everything ever. He's started making a wine that bears his name out in Napa Valley: No. 99 Wayne Gretzky Estates 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon. According to people who know a thing or two about wine, it's apparently pretty good. Knowing nothing about the subject myself -- in addition to not liking wine in general -- I'll turn it over to the folks at, per the Coyotes' website.

“This Cab has classic Napa characteristics: dark fruit aromas of sweet black cherry, blackberry and cassis with a light touch of toasty oak. (It’s) a supple, rich and balanced wine, complemented by delicately complex accents of strawberry, hints of anise, mint, lilac and rose,” writes in a recent article listing its “Best of the Best.”

Those all sound like good characteristics for a wine... I would assume. If you are interested in getting hammered enjoying what I would imagine is the Wayne Gretzky of Cabernet Sauvignons, check out There 99's wines range from $18.99 to $45 for the Cabernet mentioned here. We get no cut, so no pressure. Hell, just send us a check instead. We won't send you wine but unlike Wayne, we could use the money.
