No amount of happy birthdays are enough to suffice. Bobby's the greatest athlete in Boston sports history. Better than Ted, Brady, and Bird.

Reason I am a hockey fan, never mind a Bruins fan. It's like Christmas for older Bruins fans.

One of my biggest disappointments is that I was too young to appreciate Orr. I was about 7-8 when he hung them up

I like the part where Lanny says his own bench was laughing at him trying to check Bobby. This is HOF Lanny McDonald we're talking about.

Happy 65th Birthday to the "Great" Bobby Orr from Parry Sound!

His initials have always been on the Bruins logo!

New memoir book cover revealed (what else?):


Quote:
The memoir is due out in October, and according to publisher G.P. Putnam's Sons, it will include Orr's reflections on his hockey career as well as "the candid thoughts of a man who once lost nearly everything to the treachery of his best friend, then reinvented himself and found renewed success."

Said Orr: "I'm like most people in that over time I've wanted to write down my thoughts, make sense of many things I've seen, and share some things I've learned. Having played in the National Hockey League doesn't make me a better person than anyone else but it does mean that I've met some interesting people and been through some experiences I think are worth putting on paper. This moment in my life seems the right time to do just that."

Available for pre-order at Amazon.
