"Jebus" didn't do jack. Jesus, however, didn't play on frozen water.

Jesus would never gamble. He might help out at senior bingo, but that's it.

Jebusman plays the hockey?

Who cares about Jesus. What does Kanye West have to say about all of this?
 
2006-02-14 09:14:47 AM
So he's coming back in three days?

Mr. Clarence Butterworth: Jesus would never gamble. He might help out at senior bingo, but that's it.


We Catholics have a monopoly on bingo. It also wouldn't suprise me if He had to help out, those old women can be real biatches.

"Wayne Gretzky doesn't care about black people!!!"

Even Jesus didn't turn ice into gold.

\Oh, i can't believe i did that
\\Total depravity rears its ugly head

Wayne - "You have a gambling problem."

Janet - "That's true. Will you forgive me?"

Wayne - "Sure. Remember when I got caught stealing all those watches from Sears? Well, that's nothing because you have a gambling problem. And remember when I let that escaped lunatic in the house because he was dressed like Santa Claus? Well, you have a gambling problem!"

It's either this or get compared to Hitler.
Winnipeg. Winnipeg. Winnipeg.
 
2006-02-14 09:20:47 AM
Whatever. There were (and are) legitimate questions regarding what Gretzky knew in all of this.
 
2006-02-14 09:22:26 AM
Everyone knows Jesus hates Canada.
 
2006-02-14 09:23:10 AM
This is assinine. How can you compare that stupid twit to one of the greatest hockey players of all time?
 
2006-02-14 09:23:15 AM
"Wayne Gretzky doesn't care about black people!!!"

You know, I thought that's what he would say.
 
2006-02-14 09:25:46 AM
I didn't know Jesus bet on the Leafs...
 
2006-02-14 09:26:27 AM

Not unless they can score 40 goals in a season
 
2006-02-14 09:27:08 AM
Hockey fans, remember this: when Wayne Gretsky, the greatest hockey player ever, retired, the game didn't get network coverage.
 
2006-02-14 09:28:42 AM
Jesus saves!

Gretzky rebounds, shoots...SCOORREESS!!!!
 
2006-02-14 09:30:17 AM
submitter needs to learn how to spell crucifixion.

That is all.
 
2006-02-14 09:30:52 AM
Jesus saves, Wayne scores on the rebound. Hat tip to 77, whose brother i used to watch play at Old Chicago Stadium with the original spin'o rama.

CTRL-F Jesus: Phrase not found.
CTRL-F Christ: Phrase not found.

So, I guess Jesus Christ is the only person in the history of the world ever to be crucified?

Stop reading meaning into an article that isn't there.
 
2006-02-14 09:33:05 AM
Good reading comprehension people. Can someone point out where, exactly, this comparison to Jesus was made? Anyone actually read the story? I'm guessing crucifixion was not created as a means to torture only Jesus but was used for nearly 1000 years as a form of capital punishment against many thousands of people.
 
2006-02-14 09:34:01 AM
What an embarrasing article. I wonder if the writer's mother puts a twinkie in his Gretzky lunchbox before he goes to work.
 
2006-02-14 09:34:40 AM
Comparing Gretzky to Jesus?

Don't you think that's a little bit demeaning to The Great One?

/Canadian
//He's Wayne Gretzky, biatch
///reco'nize!

Wrong! It was used solely for Christian martyrs and gamblers who got caught. Mostly for gamblers. Especially if they lost the Emperor's college fund in the betting.
 
2006-02-14 09:34:48 AM
Who is this "Gretsky" of whom you speak?
 
2006-02-14 09:35:52 AM
Crucifixion?! You lucky, lucky bastard.
 
2006-02-14 09:36:31 AM
Well...did anyone else but jesus get a crown of thorns?

/merely curious

Hmmmm well the reference to Pilate works for me.

Andre Brin, the affable media relations guy from Hockey Canada, played a reluctant Pilate in delivering an exhausted Gretzky to the print and electronic media.

Anybody else not care about players gambling?

Even in their own sport, I think it would make for some interesting games if some dude bet he could make the whole team lose the game.

But then, I feel that most sports these days are about as interesting as watching paint dry.... so I may be alone on this one


/I also support George Carlin's opinion that Baseball would be made more interesting by distributing Claymores in random places throughout the field
//But thats another thing

Even better...if BOTH teams had a guy who bet that their team would lose...

Cross-checking?

Why do you think the communion waffer looks like a puck?
 
2006-02-14 09:40:21 AM
Gretzky got hammered too?!

/nothin'
//one-way, please
 
2006-02-14 09:40:49 AM
Well, at least the greatest player in hockey history will come out of this unscathed. Yep, Mario's hands are clean.

Q: Are you comparing Wayne Gretzky to Our Lord?

A: In hockey ability, yes.

Who do you think of when you hear "crucified"? I'm sure Isadora Duncan wasn't the only person ever to die when her scarf got tangled in the rear axel of the car she was driving, but she's pretty much the only one people think of in that situation. Don't be an ass.

LeMieux is to Gretzky what Jim Brown is to Walter Payton. Clearly the more talented, but not in the game long enough to be the "greatest". Still, I preferred watching Mario over Wayne, when Mario was not sick. Even sick he was better than the best out there now..Jagr? Bure?

Not like you can really shave points in hockey like you can in basketball. Hockey gambling is a sucker's bet.

/or maybe not.

I agree with the article.

It's farkin' Gretzky man - let him coach and win us another Gold.

fark it - he's above the law. That's right, I said it.

This is NOT Wayne Gretzky's gambling investigation - it is a Rick Tocchet investigation in which Wayne's wife may have been a bettor - activity that is NOT illegal.

Nothing seems sacred anymore. There was a time when a lesbian First Lady and a crippled President were accommodated by the media and now a living legend can't even garner a reasonable amount of public decorum or respect.

Wayne Gretzky, like Jean Beliveau, rises above all his accomplishments as a hockey player by being a decent human being with a sense of community and an observed duty to the sport that has given him so much.

We should all be the kind of person Wayne Gretzky is. At least we should aspire to his level.

No kidding asinine, Wayne Gretzky is real!
