As a 10-year old boy … Wayne Gretzky was playing for his hometown team – the Brantford Nadrofsky Steelers.  That year, he scored an astonishing 378 goals in 68 games – an average of 5.6 goals per game!

Wayne would go on to play 21 seasons in his professional hockey career … amassing a stunning 2,857 points – (nearly 1,000 more points than the next closest player)!

While there’s an ongoing debate as to who the original creator of the hamburger is … Louis Lassen is most frequently credited with fashioning the very first one, in New Haven, Connecticut … in 1900.

As the story goes … a customer was a bit pressed for time and asked Louis for something “quick and delicious”.
Lassen grabbed some ground beef and mixed it with the ingredients he usually used for his steak sandwiches. He then broiled the ground beef and pressed it between two pieces of toasted bread.

No one could ever have imagined the popularity the hamburger would go on to enjoy. In fact … it’s estimated that Americans consume 50,000,000,000 (and that’s not a typo – 50 BILLION) … hamburgers each year!
