"Anything for Joey"

Some of you probably have seen the recent SportsNet documentary “Anything for Joey” which was made in memory of Joey Moss, who had Down Syndrome; he was befriended by Wayne Gretzky in the 1970s and worked for both the Edmonton Oilers and the Edmonton Eskimos, and was very well-known to most Canadians, even if they are not sports fans.

For those who knew my brother Gordon, this short documentary (24 minutes) brings back many memories, as Joey and Gordon were very much alike. For those who did not know Gordon, you will get a good sense of what he was like. His personality, favourite things (including watching wrestling), sense of humour, and behaviours were very much the same as Joey's.


The video is heartwarming and bittersweet on many levels.
