The Sochi Winter Olympics are starting in February and we couldn’t think of a better winter athlete to do our quote of the month than former NHL superstar Wayne Gretzky. Gretzky played 20 seasons in the National Hockey League for four teams from 1979 to 1999. He is the leading point scorer in NHL history and is the only NHL player to total over 200 points in one season. Gretzky has appeared in the Stanley Cup Finals 6 times with two different teams. He won the cup four times in a row with the Edmonton Oilers in the late-80s. Following his retirement, Gretzky went on to purchase a minority stake in the Phoenix Coyotes NHL franchise and would later become their head coach for five seasons. Gretzky made his first international appearance as a member of the Canadian national junior team at the 1978 World Junior Championships in Montreal, Quebec and Canada went on to win the bronze medal. Gretzky debuted with the Team Canada’s men’s team at the 1981 Canada Cup. He led the tournament in scoring with 12 points en route to a second-place finish to the Soviet Union. Gretzky would lead Canada to Gold in the 1984, 1987, and 1991 Canada Cups. Gretzky would help Canada win silver in the 1996 World Cup after the tournament was revived and renamed to the World Cup.

The 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan were the first Olympics where NHL players were allowed to participate. Expectations were high for the Canadian team, but the team lost to the Czech Republic in the semi-finals. Gretzky was Executive Director of the Canadian men’s hockey team at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah and the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy. Gretzky was the final Olympic torchbearer at the 2010 Winter Olympics and was named Special Advisor to the Canada men’s national ice hockey team. Gretzky had an uncanny ability to judge the position of the other players on the ice that many said that he played like he had ‘eyes in the back of his head’. His intelligence and reading of the game were unrivaled and he could consistently anticipate where the puck was going to be and execute the right move at the right time. This is what Gretzky would say when asked what makes a great hockey player…

“A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be.” - Wayne Gretzky

December is holiday season and we’re bringing another Christmas quote to you from famous child actress Shirley Temple. Temple is an American film and television actress, singer and dancer who began her career in 1932 at the age of three. In April 1934, ‘Stand Up and Cheer!’ became Temple’s breakthrough film. She would appear in several films for Fox Films Corporation and later with Twentieth Century Fox after the successful merger of Fox Films and Twentieth Century Pictures. Temple’s films were produced during the great depression and many of the themes of her films included optimism, hope and generosity which helped to liven up the spirits of the American public. A succession of films followed: ‘The Little Colonel’ , ‘Our Little Girl’, ‘Curly Top’ (with the signature song ‘Animal Crackers in My Soup’), and ‘The Littlest Rebel’ in 1935.Temple was very successful at licensing merchandise with her likeness for products such as dolls, sheet music, mirrors, girls dresses and other accessories. Before 1935 ended, Temple’s income from licensed merchandise royalties would exceed $100,000, doubling her income from her movies. As Temple grew older and matured as an actress, she became typecast by Hollywood and had a hard time adapting to different roles where she could no longer rely on her childish good looks and smile to win film roles. In 1950, she officially retired from film acting but would return to host a television anthology series and would make sporadic guest appearances on sitcoms. In her later years, Temple turned to politics and became a member of the Republican party where she was appointed United States Ambassador to Ghana in the 1970s and was later appointed United States Ambassador to Czechoslovakia in the 1990s by former president George H. W. Bush. It didn’t take long for Shirley Temple to understand that she was famous at such an early age. In this month’s quote, Shirley Temple describes why she no longer believes in Santa Claus…

“I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph”. - Shirley Temple
