overheard at wayne gretzkys

Wayne has a restaraunt about a block away from my office on Blue Jays Way near the Diesel Playhouse. Being that it's the closest licenced lunch spot to work, I often find myself killing noon hour (and the hour after that) at Wayne's with Toronto's best bartender Gus. Last week I overheard this conversation between a man and what appeared to be his (roughly) eleven year old son.

Man: So do you know who Wayne Gretzky is boy?
Boy: Umm, didn't he play for the Leafs or something?
Man: *sigh* Close enough.

True story.
