I do. I grew up believing that was the norm and I couldn't imagine anything different, at that time. I think we're in the same age bracket. Didn't you see the world like that growing up.

When Gretzky was King of the Hill in Edmonton, the NHL never held such a large portion of the North American sports market. Gretzky, or another Oiler were always on the cover of every sports mag there was in existence.

Then there was that Warren Moon fellow that visited my elementary school and I shook his hand and asked him how much money he made.
