Wayne Gretzky letting his hair down is not as attractive as you might think. 

The Great One was hanging out with the carefree attitude of a retired sports legend, which led to some rather priceless photo ops with nearby fans. 

Deadspin reports on some tweets spotted by Shot of Ginn showing an allegedly inebriated, possibly exhausted and most definitely awkward Gretzky. 

First is this tweet from Nicole Thomas that shows the hockey legend rocking the same exact face that I might offer just moments before last call.

Not to be outdone, Jordan Harris delivers this tweet, complete with a picture of Gretzky, who no doubt spotted the french fries that are sitting over at the next table. Is anyone going to eat those?

Deadspin helps us out on the particulars behind Gretzky and why he was allegedly boozing it up in South Carolina. 

Gretzky was in Greenville, S.C., last week, taking part in the BMW Charity Pro-Am golf tournament. In the first round on Thursday, Gretzky and his partner Padraig Harrington shot a 66, well off the leaders in the 50s. 

Retirement seems to be far more eventful than most let on. Of course, many will be shocked to hear the one Gretzky making headlines for epic bar game like this is Wayne—not his lovely daughter, Paulina. 

If you are wondering what the younger Gretzky has been up to, Busted Coverage spotted her recently with golf pro boyfriend Dustin Johnson, who is currently nursing a back injury. 

All of this is to say that family parties must get quite out of hand at the Gretzky house, resembling something out of the The Great Gatsby.

Now, someone remind Gretzky he took these pictures. Something tells me he doesn't quite remember.
