The day after “The Great One” ended his legendary playing career with an emotional Madison Square Garden goodbye, Wayne Gretzky was a guest on "Mike and the Mad Dog."

In the April 19, 1999, interview, Gretzky, who spent the final three seasons of his 21-year career with the Blueshirts said: “I’m going to miss all of it. Going to the rink for practice. I’m going to miss the games. I’m going to miss the fans. I’m going to miss sitting around on the road talking to the writers about hockey. … But most of all, I’m going to miss my teammates.”
