Gretzky Doors


Number 99 is famous in Canada for being the number worn by Wayne Gretzky, one of the best hockey players ever. The address for Wayne Gretzky's restaurant in Toronto is 99 Blue Jays Way and this is the front door. Love those handles (they are the blades from hockey skates) - hope those blades aren't sharpened!

I love the way you Canadians express your creativity in the details! ;-)

Excellent, Redpat. Wayne Gretsky never played on a team that I liked, but I admired his skill and sportsmanship greatly.

Great shot! I love it. I'm sure the skates aren't sharp, but the door sure is.
Sometimes it just seems yesterday when Wayne was a newcomer to the NHL, and sometimes it seems like centuries. A great Canadian athlete. I love that his restaurant is near the ballpark. Maybe I'll get a meal and a game some day.

Wayne Gretzky was a great one and the restaurant is a tribute to his favorite sport.

btw RedPat, TJ's has organic foods and green products at a great price.

Nice one. Have you been inside? I have passed by here a few times, but have never noticed these doors (or the handles!)
