Nobody who has ever been to Brantford will be surprised that this happened.

Too many bored kids?

The town should have just put statues of Semenko and McSorely nearby.  Hell, it worked before for 9 years.

Is this mullet Gretzky or non-mullet Gretzky?

Cause I could totally understand if it was the first one.

For some reason Gretzky had trouble relating to players like Shane Doan. Couldn't understand why they weren't precognitive on the ice.

Pick any rust-belt town in the US that has about ~100,000 people in it, and you've got a pretty good idea of what Brantford's like. The factories and jobs left 20 years ago, and *the* most interesting thing about Brantford is that it's Gretzky's hometown. The second most interesting fact about Brantford is that it has been used as a filming location for a zombie movie without any particular preparation.

That must have been a messier to clean up.

How many statues of him are there? Is it like North Korea, where there are signs and statues of leader all over the place?

And Tea Baggers wonder why you can't just leave national monuments open with no one around to protect them.

You know that saying "those who can't do, teach?" Gretzky is proof of the inverse of that.

Just because he netted a laugh (which might have been his goal), you can't be sure he didn't get an assist to help his score.

Now why would you do that to the great one? Maybe if it was a politician I could understand but not Gretzky FFS. Now a statue of his daughter I would defile nightly.

If you can Sather is a better way, i'd like to see it.

Also, sure it wasn't Canucks fans that defaced the statue?

The hockey gods haven't been too kind since they pulled this stunt at the Staples Center a few years ago.

I don't know Howe it isn't obvious. Clearly, these terrible puns are driving people Streit out of these threads.

The only thing worse than vandalizing a Gretzky statue, is cutting off the head of Jedediah Springfield's.

This is tantamount to vandalizing a statue of Jesus Christ in Bethleham, if Jesus had ACTUALLY performed miracles.
