So much greatness in one small handshake

On Wednesday in Seattle, two of the most iconic figures in the history of their respective sports shared a moment at Safeco Field.

Wayne Gretzky, nicknamed "The Great One" for good reason, was seated in the front row along the third-base side when Derek Jeter came over and extended his hand.

It's almost as if time slowed down, angels sang and their clasped hands glowed with true greatness.

OK, it wasn't that dramatic, but it was a pretty cool moment nonetheless.
