Seeing Sports RED for Valentine's Day

Stan "the Man" Musial passed away last month at the age of 92. He played his whole baseball career with the Redbirds, the St. Louis Cardinals. Sports Illustrated said: In Musial we had a man who was unfailingly loyal to his organization, to his wife and most especially to his craft. Musial was married for 72 years to his wife, Lillian, before she passed away last year. Wow! My wife and I are a third of the way there:)
Congratulations to Wayne and his wife on a long marriage too! They are just a month ahead of us:)
From Wikipedia:
While serving as a celebrity judge on Dance Fever, Gretzky met his future wife, American actress Janet Jones. According to Wayne, Janet does not recall him being on the show. They met regularly after that, but did not become a couple until 1987 when they ran into each other at a Los Angeles Lakers game that Wayne and Alan Thicke were attending. Wayne proposed in January 1988, and they were married on July 17, 1988 in a lavish ceremony the Canadian press dubbed "The Royal Wedding".
