I have been so blessed in my lifetime to have seen Bobby Orr, Tom Brady, Larry Bird, Z Bill Bela check , Red Aerback, Among many others. I was a fan of the Patriots when they did not make the playoffs for 35 years . Now Tom Brady has played in 6 super bowls. I Have been fortunate to have seen the red Sox win a couple world series after a 100 year drought. You can't take any of this lightly, it may never happen again Enjoy it all. We are all blessed

Stauffer is trying to defend Schultz by saying Bobby Orr made mistakes too. Jesus.

Fun Facts on Lacrosse Fastest Growing Sport in the United States (source NSGA) Highest College Graduation Rates (source NCAA) Oldest Sport in the United States. What did those pretty good lacrosse players including Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr, Gordie Howe and Steve Stamkos do in the off season? Oh yeah, they played a little hockey. Most of their peers growing up played lacrosse when the Spring melt came. Considered the fastest sport on two feet, a favorite of New England Patriots Coach, Bill Belichick, the captain of his college lacrosse team. Lacrosse Rules were created to force cradling specifically to slow down this guy named Jim Brown, arguably one of the greatest football players of all time, because he could trap the ball to his chest with his stick and just blow through defenders. Basketball inventor James Naismith called it, "the best of all possible field games."

Each decade can be defined by the athletes who dominated it. The ‘70s belonged to grinders like Terry Bradshaw, Pete Rose, and Bobby Orr. The ‘80s gave us Magic Johnson’s Showtime, Joe Montana’s inevitable heroics, and the wizardry of Wayne Gretzky. The ‘90s were the domain of transcendent figures like Michael Jordan, Mario Lemieux, and Jerry Rice. Since the start of the 2000s, two athletes have come to represent winning above all else. They play different sports in rival cities, but share a connection that dates back to when one was a teenager and the other a burgeoning star. Boston fans are intimately familiar with each, and probably won’t be surprised to hear they consider each other friends. One is Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. The other is Yankees captain Derek Jeter. Between them, they’ve accounted for eight championships and another four runner-up finishes. They also symbolize grace under pressure, winning and losing with class, and maintaining a pristine public image as the faces o ...
Just got up & saw a commercial starring a Hockey legend Guy Lafleur. Maan, talk about a blast from the past. I remember growing up on a farm in Sask, EVERY time he could , my brother was watching Hockey. I remember being REAL small and dreading "Hockey Night In Canada." But, I watched games or partial games between playing with my sister Tracey. Thank you ,Alvin Fell for exposing me/ explaining the game to me & being patient with a yappy little kid sister.. I saw the GREATS, Bobby Orr, Ken Dryden, Jean Beliveau, Phil Esposito, Bobby Hull, Gordie Howe. I remember watching Bobby Orrs last game, being young & heartbroken. It was my 1st Hockey heartbreak..lol. NHL season starts next month !! Just sharing some memories with my friends...Let's have a GREAT day / night peeps PEACE xo

The spring 2014 session was an up and down one for the Monkeys. There were several brutal losses (thanks in part to trouble getting people to show up every week) but also glimpses of the team's true potential in a few dominant victories. That potential was underscored by wingers Jodie St John (11 goals) and Pat Kiddredge (14 pts) leading the league in goals and points respectively.   However Screaming stumbled down the stretch and at 3-6 most of the team figured they were playing for pride in the regular season finale. But after several of their compeitors failed to clinch the final playoff spot, the Monkeys were granted a 2nd life and beat the Shockers to earn a first round matchup with the top seeded Dragons.   The Dragons have been Monkeys-killers for a while now thanks largely to their sensational goalie who led the division with a 1.80 goals against and a .934 save percentage. But those gaudy numbers didn't stop Screaming from lighting him up for a thriling 6-5 OT upset win that advanced them to th ...

David Ortiz is so awesome because he gives back so much, i just saw 2 fathers day posts & the only boston player who could beat him in niceness is Bobby Orr or Cam Neely
A lot of people would like to say I have gotten to the place I am on my efforts alone that it was my hard work and skill but many people through the years have helped me and one of the people who have helped me the most is my father Timothy Tiernan. I would just like to take a second to go over the lessons he has taught me over the years to let him no I was listening. -Your faith in yourself and god will carry you through any situation -No one group has a Patten on being an *** so racism makes no sense -You will live longer if you shoot first ask questions later - A man who is loyal is more valuable to you then a man with skill - Be a good man before you worry about being a rich one - The only time ur allowed to cry as a man is if ur a vet watching the flag being hoisted - Any one can change the tide of battle or game if they have the balls to risk everything -Labs are the workhorses of hunting dogs and pick em cause they go where no pointer will ever go -Spend more money on the dog and less on the s ...

"Success comes and goes, but if your children are healthy and happy, nothing else matters much" - Bobby Orr
I watched Pro hockey all year & then watched the play-offs. I don't know how many time I heard the announcers say "He played a really long shift, 45 seconds, he must be exhausted!". Now I'm watching the FIFA Cup & these guys (and the women do the same) play 2 45 minute halves without a break. Have our hockey players gotten that soft? Bobby Orr & several other players used to play 50+ minutes a game.
After the third of six games total Paul played this weekend in his big AAA Spring Hockey Tournament. He slammed his knee hard into the boards after taking a Bobby Orr move in attempt to score. He continued to ice and take Advil and toughed through the pain. A real trooper and dedicated hockey player! Proud of him and the NEA Rams for their Battle against the other Canadian and American Teams. Racism against our boys unfortunately resulted in a disgraceful display of extreme and unnecessary violence as well as verbal threats and bullying. Winnipeg, you are a pretty city with many very friendly and kind people but I was not impressed with the officials and hockey players we encountered. We are glad to head back home! Edmonton, here we come!
As another year has passed and life is fleeting by the minute I sit and ponder some of life’s treasures that we do not have to pay for, trade for or even do anything. I just have to be myself. What are those treasures you ask? Parents and today is the day we celebrate our fathers let me tell you about mine – As long as I can remember back I have always looked at my father as a larger than life figure – I was a small child and he was 6’4” and had a deep voice. This is when I started to look up to him. As I grew and had many learning disabilities and personality traits that many did not understand –hey most still do not today - lol He loved me unconditionally and stood behind me no matter what – PERIOD. He coached one of the most un-coordinated human beings alive and made me feel like Carl Yastrzemski, Bobby Orr, Steve Grogan or Larry Bird. He taught me how to love others even though they could not be loved. He taught me the joy of family and friends. He taught me to always have my hand up to ...

Comments from the Raymond Souster judges on Catherine Graham's work. I know it's a couple of days late, but I just had to share these: Catherine Graham is an accomplished poet with a generous and whimsical mind, whose candid poetry offers us startling insights. Her Red Hair Rises With the Wings of Insects, is a series of glosas that pay homage to Canadian poet P.K. Page and Irish poet, Dorothy Malloy. Graham’s work is fresh, sophisticated and beautifully crafted. It moves easily between imagined and natural worlds, from mashed potato dolls, to nipples to the Queen and Bobby Orr, in meditation and song. Her muscular images and sensual language are wrought in lines that are as evocative as those of her mentors Seamus Heaney, Paul Durcan and Paul Muldoon.

I have been been watching a few videos on Youtube about the best hockey players which made me either angry or agreeable, My list of one through five would be, in order, Mario Lemieux, Dominik Hasek, Bobby Orr, Wayne Gretzky, and Peter Stastny. . For goal scorers it is Mike Bossy, Mario Lemieux, Pavel Bure, Alex Ovechkin, and Cam Neely. For Passers it is Gretzky, Lemieux, Ron Francis, Adam Oates and Jaromir Jagr. Goalies I would say Hasek, Roy, Belfour, Lundqvist and Ryan Miller. Yeah Brodeur is not on my list
Hockey musings; 1) Definitely surprised at Ray Shero's dismissal.I feel there's a disconnect with Bylsma and his players. Cameras caught it, word has been leaking out about it. I think he's done a very good job but in a result oriented business you gotta win and he hasn't been getting it done yet you let the GM go. Crosby gets one goal but you let the GM go.weird... 2) There's only been two teams in NHL history to put five players on the first all-star team...the 45 Habs and the 64 Hawks...That Hawk team only won one Cup...With Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita, arguably the two best players in the game at that time..Sound familiar? .Won the Cup in 61, finals 62, beat first round 63 and it cost Rudy Pilious his job but not GM Tommy Ivan...He was GM of the Hawks for 23 years.And Hull never won again...Bobby Orr-two Cups...Gordie Howe, never won another Cup after 1955.Wayne Gretzky, played twelve more seasons after his last Cup in 88...Mario-two Cups.It's tough to win that friggin trophy..Really surprised at She . ...

on 1970 Bobby Orr scores "The Goal" to win the 1970 Stanley Cup Finals, for the Boston Bruins' fourth NHL championship in their hi..
I can respect that but Fred Lynn gives me as big a *** as Bobby Orr.
Watching the Habs, whom I have always hated except for one era. I loved Bobby Rousseau. Slight guy with howitzer for slap shot. Many won't remember him on a star-laden team. I guess I liked most Bobbys. Bobby Hull, Bobby Orr, Bobby Clarke.

As of last night I went 6-2 on my predictions. Considering I didn't take into account Tampa bay's goalie situation (Lindback was poor in net. Should have played the Latvian Kristers Gudlevskis. The guy faced fifty something shots against the Canadian olympic team and only let in two.): i'd say I did pretty well. Round two begins tonight. Here are my thoughts. If you have no interest move along. Share your thoughts below otherwise. Boston vs Montreal: However I felt about the Bruins playing Detroit triple that feeling. Oh my god!!! For the love of Bobby Orr please don't get flustered by the Canadiens irritating tactics, don't retaliate to them and don't play their game. Play physical and get that penalty kill moving. You're going to need it. Bruins take the series. Get the happy pills and booze out, because this series is going to be a frustrating nail biter that'll result in your tv exploding. Chicago vs Minnesota: I would have loved to see Colorado beat Minnesota and move on, but it wasn't in the cards. ...
I just took a picture of Bobby Orr that included a muskoka chair. That pretty much sums up Parry Sound.
The Bruins now take on the Montreal Canadiens!! One of the fiercest rivalries in all of sports. They don't have Ken Dryden now but Bobby Orr is still on our side and the Bruins will meet the St Louis Blues in the finals.anyone remember "the Goal" and "the picture of the trip"? Some of the best in the anals of hockey history!!
Larry Bird and Bobby Orr "moving to SF Bay Area Wanna be where the winners are, nothing but cry babies out here"
The legendary *** and Rick Hoyt cross the Boston Marathon finish line for the last time. They are as essential to the fabric of our city as Ted Williams, Bill Russell, and Bobby Orr.
Bobby Orr in the house tonight. Bobby is an agent to Josh Anderson, Brett Welychka & Mitchell Kreis and
wouldn't work no time for judo. Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr, Sidney Crosby. Not one of the a judoka.
Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr, and other hockey greats have suggested that year-round hockey might not be good for young players. Playing a variety of sports and developing overall athleticism is acknowledged as best for young players, and a path to elite levels of hockey.
My toe pick got caught on the ice and i went flying like Bobby Orr
I'm reading Bobby Orr's biography. Wayne Gretzky was 'the Great One,' but was and is 'the Greatest.'
HatterStrong Tshirt now in the hands of Bobby Orr!
On this day, 1970 - Bobby Orr of the Boston Bruins becomes the first defenseman to win the NHL scoring title.

Troubadour whattta beauty, good Saskatchawan boyy. Blocks shots, skates like Bobby Orr! Ya know wat, reminds me of BIESSSKA
Despite the leafs losing it was awesome having the opportunity to watch it with Bobby Orr
PK Subban was comparable to Doughty and Weber in 2011-12. If he's an unfinished project, you're expecting Bobby Orr.
"Yo dude Orr *** He sucked today!" - drunk kids commenting on my Bobby Orr jersey. I agree though where was Orr today...?
Two games in a row where channelling both Bobby Orr's skating AND his orneriness. Whoo, hope he's hitting the weight room.
Let's face it, Leafs really don't deserve to make the playoffs. Blues vs Bruins in the final? Shades of 1970 and Bobby Orr's classic goal.
Torey Krug passed Bobby Orr for goals as rookie defenceman for Bruins with 14 in 75 games(plays on 1pp). Trouba scores his 10th in game 62
Pardy must be watching Orr reruns lately. He has found a new game.
Bobby Orr plays soccer now?? lol no he played well. Him and as always Bradley are right up there tonight.
Just another Saturday night...my DS11 watching the Leafs game with Bobby Orr.
We should make up a drinking game for Boston = 1 shot, Bobby Orr = Chug a beer, Cuts off Ron = 2 fingers or rye
Young Bobby Orr after signing his contract to play for the Oshawa Generals 1962-1963 season
She got a picture with the Bobby Orr statue. She probably doesn't even know who he is.
ok, so there's only 1 Bobby Orr but, perhaps MT should let PK try to be the BEST PK possible?!?!
Do not compare - anybody who is currently playing D in NHL - to Bobby Orr.

All parents with kids in sports should read Bobby Orr's story. We'd have more great kids & fewer parents banned from games.
"The fact is that talent counts for almost nothing in the absence of hard work and character" - Bobby Orr
What do Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr and Trevor Linden have in common? They all frown on year-round hockey for kids - http:…
Stompin' Tom Connors rings out. Bobby Orr is mentioned. Is he available for the 3rd period?

Turk Sanderson drops the puck. great drafted the year after Bobby Orr. Cup winner in '70 and '72.
April 5th, 1970: Bobby Orr grabs an assist in a 3-1 win over to make him the first defenseman to lead the in scoring
Torey Krug (has just passed Bobby Orr for most goals by a Bruins rookie d-man with his 14th of the season.
Juan Mata a fight short for the Bobby Orr hat trick! What an assist!
Well that depends on the context and the tonality Bobby-O.
OK, greatest hockey players of all-time: Gretzky, Orr, Mario, Sid the Kid, Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita, Gordie Howe, Le Rocket.
Reporter on Weekend Edition just tried to argue that Patrick Kane is better than Bobby Orr. Uh, no.
PK is closets thing to Bobby Orr since Orr He should be given rope. He should be allowed 1 rush end to end 2 slap it on net

Today in 1970 Bobby Orr became the 1st NHL defenseman to lead the league in scoring!
I want Bobby Orr's autograph on this. its as old as I am.Both of us made in 1972
This Day in Sports-1970 - Bobby Orr became the first NHL defenseman to win the Art Ross Trophy as the NHL's top scorer
I bet Bobby Orr used his 5 free wings coupon he got at the storm game tonight. Not even Bobby can resist free wings.
I think a Bobby Orr trophy would be a great idea. Then the Norris can stop being the ‘best offensive defenceman’ award.
I have Going Out In Style by a nose due to the Bobby Orr cameo.
Today is Wednesday, April 2, 2014 Today in Sports History 1984 - John Thompson became the first black coach to lead his team to the NCAA college basketball championship. 1984 - In Baltimore, President Reagan threw out the first ball in the season opener between the Baltimore Orioles and the Chicago White Sox. 1985 - The NCAA Rules Committee adopted the 45-second shot clock for men’s basketball to begin in the 1986 season. 1986 - Paul Coffey (Edmonton Oilers) scored his 47th and 48th goals of the season. He broke Bobby Orr's NHL record for most goals by a defenseman. Orr had scored 46 goals in 1974-75. 1995 - The costliest strike in professional sports history ended when baseball owners agreed to let players play without a contract. 2003 - Alex Rodriguez (Texas Rangers) became the youngest player to hit 300 homeruns. He beat Jimmie Foxx's record by 79 days.
I did this before and got nothing... but I'll try again. David Ortiz... Where will he fall in the Pantheon of Boston greats? My first choice is Bill Russell. Then Bobby Orr. Larry Bird. Tom Brady/Bill; David Ortiz, Dwight Evans. Who am I missing. Bill Rogers? (Marathoner)
Sad to say, it's over. Like Griffey Jr or Bobby Orr, a great career cut short by injury. Everything from here on in is a coda
Some NHL defenseman grew up watching film off Bobby Orr & Paul Coffey. PK Subban has obviously modeled his game on Denni…
Been feeling better these last few weeks. Knee is getting stronger every week but still have a ways to go. Been doing a lot of reading these last 7 weeks. 5 books. Most notably Chris Nilan, Bobby Orr and now Ken Dryden's books. Hope to be starting the Moneyball book by the weekend. Let's hope the Bruins play a discipline game agaisnt the Habs tonight and make it 13 in a row. Will be hard when you play a team that makes diving an art form. Just ask the Leafs from this past Saturday night. Have a great night and peace everyone.
I nom tiger woods and my friend Bobby Orr.

Apparently Kanye West did a 25th anniversary remix of Thriller in 2008??? Just heard Billie Jean from that album and honestly couldn't tell a difference, so I, of course, Googled it to find out what, exactly, Kanye might've done... Here's some info on the remixed song from Wikipedia: - Bill Lamb, of About.com, described the remix as "lifeless" stating that "it sounded like West had entered the studio fully intimidated by the genius of the original." - Pitchfork Media's Tom Ewing said Kanye's mix had a "clumsy claustrophobia." - Mike Joseph, in his review of Thriller 25 for PopMatters, called the remix "lazy." He went on to say, "You've been given the opportunity to remix the most iconic single from one of the most iconic albums of all time, and all you can do is stick a drum machine on top of the song's original arrangement?" - Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone disliked the removal of the original bassline, and compared it to "putting Bobby Orr on the ice without a hockey stick." Lifeless, clumsy, lazy, and ...
March 4, 2014 This is a series of shots I took and then put them together. This is Bobby Orr jumping to the pine tree. :)
In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure. Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, John Elway, Joe Montana, Terry Bradshaw, Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr, Carl Yastrzemski, Nolan Ryan, Mia Hamm, Lionel Messi, Lindsey Vonn, Bonnie Blair, these are just a few of the greatest names in sports history, and not one of these world class athletes won every time they suited up. Instead, they took the things they learned from a loss and applied it to the next contest. And because of that lack of fear and desire to succeed, they will forever walk the earth as Champions!
Bobby Orr had EIGHT Norris Trophies by 27 years old. Had knee surgery been then what it is today, how many would he have won?
Great note by , Bobby Orr won all 8 of his Norris Trophies before the age of 30, Lidstrom won all 7 after 30.
