Actor Taylor Kitsch recently spent some quality time with Wayne Gretzky.

Pardon My Take published a photo over the weekend of Kitsch, who famously played “Friday Night Lights” character Tim Riggins, with NHL legend Wayne Gretzky at a hockey game together.

I recognize the fact that Kitsch is only an actor and Tim Riggins isn’t a real dude. Now, having said that, I think we can all agree Riggins is one of the coolest characters in the history of television.

Gretzky is also the greatest hockey player in the history of the sport. The man was unrivaled on the ice. I would pay anything to know what those two spoke about. Literally, I need to know what Riggins and Gretzky talk about like I need air in my lungs. (RELATED: ‘Friday Night Lights’ Leaving Netflix Is A National Tragedy)

Riggins was all about getting women, drinking beer and winning football games. If that’s not what America is all about, then I have no idea what we are as a nation.

Maybe you all disagree with me, but I think this is just about the coolest damn photo on the entire internet.
