lol I think she meant well though. She probably saw you were into hockey and so Gretzky was a big name back then and it was a local team so she thought she covered all the bases. Either that or someone at the store talked her into it.
Yeah, not all parents are tuned in. My wife's parents have always been clueless as to what's in. They once bought her older brother a New Kids on the Block album (in 1989...he was 14 at the time) for Xmas, because they saw that they were getting a lot of attention. They didn't know anything else about them other than that. Her brother was like "WTF, are you KIDDING me?!"
My parents were actually pretty aware...they were much more up on the in stuff. But a lot of parents aren't. A lot of them either don't make the effort or simply don't keep up.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
