Wayne Gretzky threatens to call off Paulina’s wedding. Canada’s Wonderland is retiring ‘Skyrider’ roller coaster. Trailer for ‘Son of Anarchy’ final season out.
GRETZKY THREATENED TO CALL OF PAULINA’S WEDDING
It wasn’t too long ago that ‘The Great One’, Wayne Gretzky was praising PGA golfer and fiancé of his daughter Paulina, Dustin Johnson. While speaking with CTV Edmonton last March, Gretzky called Johnson a “wonderful young man” and said he was pleased that Dustin would soon be his son-in-law. However, Wayne’s tune seems to have now changed. According to reports, Gretzky has had a talk with the golfer since his alleged drug habits have become public, telling him to clean up his act or else the wedding would be called off. Dustin Johnson has left the PGA Tour amid a report of a six month suspension following a positive drug test for cocaine. The tour denied the suspension but some close to the game believe the player’s drug use is a long-term problem. There are also reports that Johnson had affairs with two PGA Tour players’ wives. Johnson and Paulina plan to marry this fall. We’ll see if Wayne allows it to happen.

It was not known by late Wednesday if the bid was satisfactory, in order to advance the Toronto group to the final phase of the sale. The group of musician Jon Bon Jovi, MLSE chairman Larry Tanenbaum and the Rogers family hope their last chance at a succesful bid will be satisfactory as sources say their first bid was surprisingly low — perhaps less than $900 million.
