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 ...
He's already a modern Bobby Orr so I'm not sure...

"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.

the first shot is Bobby Orr's house many years ago, i assume after the Boston Bruins stuccoed it as part of his first contract with them (they also bought Bobby's dad a car, but not a brand new car.). the shot on the right i took this week while in Parry Sound. the only stucco you can see anymore is just on the right near the top. this house is the house the Orrs moved to when my grandparents bought the house at 4 George St; where the Orrs were living prior to this one. on Great North Road.

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 the Ultimate Hockey Show today...May 10th, A 4-time winner of the Stanley Cup with the Montreal Canadiens, who played many games against the Boston Bruins including the 1977 finals, Murray Wilson! Also, Jason Clarke, owner, GM, head coach, chief cook and bottle washer of the Carleton Place Canadians who are in Vernon, BC trying to win the Royal Bank Cup!!

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!!

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.

Do not compare - anybody who is currently playing D in NHL - to Bobby Orr.

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

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.

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 ...

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?

Little know facts : - Don Cherry just celebrated his 80th b-day couples days ago (I thought he was like 60! lol) But did you know that even though Cherry had a long minor league career, he would only skate on NHL ice once, lacing up his skates for the Boston Bruins during the 1954-55 playoffs. Cherry had no points or penalty minutes during the game. hm - Craig MacTavish played in the NHL from 1979-80 through 1996-97. When he retired from the game, he became the last player to take to the ice without wearing a helmet. The helmet rule, adopted in 1979, allowed players who had signed contracts prior to June 1, 1979 to play without the protection of a helmet, providing the signed a waiver with the NHL. - In 1971, the Boston Bruins signed Bobby Orr to a five-year deal worth $200,000 per season. The contract was the first million dollar contract in NHL history. - In the early days of the NHL, teams played with seven players per side, with each team employing a player known as a rover. The last game that was pl ...
or that Canada was better in 72 without Bobby Hull & Bobby Orr, not saying PK is Hull or Orr
I think that Crosby would be 6th after Bobby Hull, Gordie Howe & Bobby Orr (changed the game even though he played defense)
Random observations. Canada's best three players so far, in random order; Carey Price- hasn't been the busiest goalie in the tourney, but comes up big when needed. Sometimes it's harder to only have a few shots here and there, rather than be peppered with 40 shots. He's had some huge timely saves. This is from a Bruin fan too, so you know it's genuine. Drew Doughty- Grapes compared him to Bobby Orr. Well, not quite, lol, but pretty darn good all the same. He can control a game. Patrice Bergeron- all around, nobody has been better. He plays a regular shift, kills penalties and has spot duty on the PP. Wins most face-offs, and has been setting Croz and Kunitz up all tournament but they can't finish. Looking good heading into the Gold Medal game!
Dear Higher Power - it has been some time since I have prayed to you. I have two requests. Please make sure a nice customs man or lady who likes music handles Lettuce's border crossing tomorrow morning. And please do what you can to make sure Canada beats the U.S. this afternoon. Putting some extra whoop *** in Sidney Crosby's Wheaties, reminding Drew Doughty that he's actually Bobby Orr's *** kid, tweaking Phil Kessel's hamstring, spiking the U.S. water bottles with roofies, slipping the refs a few C-notes ... do what you gotta do. Amen. ' P.S. There is a comp with your name on it at the door and all the bad coffee you can drink ;)
Drew Doughty is amazing for Canada , looks and skates like Bobby Orr, good heads up hockey and skating passed those Americans , looks like a good to watch
The United States could win today's hockey game easily if we had some of the great American stars of the past like Mario Lemieux of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Bobby Orr of the Boston Bruins, and Wayne Gretzky of the Los Angeles Kings.
tough one--going all Boston: Bobby Orr, Larry Bird, & Ted Williams
Last hour to get in on the Mats Sunding- Tie Domi photo as well as the Bobby Orr autographed photo. .
Heard the best Jeter comparison ever today. He's Patrice Bergeron. Does all the little things right. One of the favorite (if not best) players in his franchise's history. Massively clutch. Great ambassador for the sport. But he's not Bobby Orr (Babe Ruth), Milt Schmidt (Lou Gehrig), or Ray Bourque (Joe DiMaggio).

Met an interesting individual last night his name was Dave Cashman. Turns out he's the brother of Wayne who was on that great Boston Bruin Team with Bobby Orr. Not hard to tell they are brothers,as they look almost identical. Dave lives here in winter time and Wayne lives in Ocala, Fl.

Phil Kessel deserves more credit for his classy goal non-celebrations. Like how Bobby Orr used to do it.
would probably be best served to remember he ain't Bobby Orr. And shouldn't try to be.
Kadri could spit in Bobby Orr's face & Grapes would call him a "good Canadian boy" and force feed his tongue down his throat.
Maybe one of the coolest things is reading about Bobby Orr and his life in Parry Sound, one that I am very familiar with
The fact that my girlfriend just asked if Coltor Orr was Bobby Orr's son...
"There is probably not much that is more important than the things a life in hockey can teach you" - Bobby Orr

Guess I gotta go north to find what I'm lookin for, so she can make me fly numba 4 Bobby Orr
funny you mention that. Readying the Bobby Orr book and a team declined the penalty because the Bruins scored 2 SH goals on them
When I was 7 I left Eastport Newfoundland. Bobby Orr was the most important person in my world. Your passion takes me right back.

Bruins' record for most goals by a rookie defenseman: Ray Bourque (17). Bobby Orr had 13. After 53 games, undrafted Torey Krug has 11.
I am reading the book Bobby Orr. I received it for Christmas, and holy moly his words hit home on so many levels.so many of his quotes I would have liked to share! I would recommend this to anyone who is involved in sports because it could easily apply to any sport and especially to Life in General...whatever happened to simplicity?
Actually the lumbering oaf on the other side was responsible when he thought he was Bobby Orr.
"Bobby Orr...behind the net to Sanderson to OR!!! BOBBY ORR!" - makes me smile everytime
"I do believe, however, that learning to handle both winning and losing is the most important part of competition. Coming to grips with the idea that the outcome doesn't always go your way is a life lesson, not just a lesson in sport." Bobby Orr
Look what I found.I have to say my fav is from the floor hockey, we were the Bobby Orr Specials...lol and I even found some wooden nickels omg. Cindy you should have a public speaking bar as well, I remember your HAIR speach:)
"growing up if I didn't have sports. I don't know where I'd be"-Bobby Orr

Lebanese chick walking through some French doors, seats at TD Garden next to Bobby Orr

Bobby Orr Hall of Fame get bronze statue
Chet. TY for the comment. regarding Bobby Orr. You're right. He's someone that all athletes should emulate. True class act!
You know its funny people say the Devils suck ...meanwhile they won 3 Stanley Cups and 5 conference championships ...They also had players such as Scott Stevens, Ken Danekyo, Jamie Langenbrunner, Scott Neidemayer, Patrick Elias, Kirk Muller, Zach Parise, John Maclean, and Aaron Broten. I've been watching Hockey since the late 60's and I have seen the great Canadiens teams, Bruins, Flyers, Islanders and Blackhawks when guys like Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito, Stan Mikita, Pit Martin, Bobby Clarke and JC Tremblay were in the fold. I wintnessed the great Rocket Richard, Rod Langway, Peter Zezel, The Plager Brothers, Steve Yzerman, Paul Coffey and countless others. Im not knocking the Rangers, but the Devils have nothing to prove . The records don't lie!!

I often try and stay out of the debate about the promiscuous limelight that can devour an athletes soul. I instead try to focus on the character, confidence, and team building that competitive sports can provide. However when I see a quote like this... "I made history tonight," Anthony said. "It's only a small group of people that know what that zone feels like. Tonight, I was one of them." . It literally makes me sick. Was it all him? No. Is it a team sport? Yes. Did he try and make himself bigger than the game? Yes!! Did MLK jr say he made history? Did JFK? Did Hank Aaron act like that? Bobby Orr? What about Larry Bird? You made history tonight? Could I have done that? no. Could anyone I'm friends with do that? No. But you made history tonight? No you didn't clown.. You are on an 8-15 team that's not even in the playoffs as of today. History and respect are EARNED by those that don't need to tell others how great they are.
On Niklas Hjalmarsson's hockey reference page and I see a comment: "This guy is the next Bobby Orr. Keep up the great work Nik!"
Bobby Orr reference! (I like to ignore that he was a Bruin)
Because Bobby Orr is famous. That is all. (no I don't pay attention to local sportspuck, why do you ask)
"To those whom much is given, much is expected." -Bobby Orr
Bobby Orr with the classic superman celly
In fairness, Colton Orr only played 21 games with the Boston Bruins over 2 seasons...5 less than Bobby played with Chicago over 2 seasons.
Bobby Orr and Colton Orr combined for 888 points with the Boston Bruins. Bobby led with 888.
Was reading Bobby Orr's book during timeouts in the game and came across this...great job Uncle Royce
"Searching for Bobby Orr". A great read and the best player ever.
I get it the kid is 19 and has talent, doesn't make him Bobby Orr

I think Maatta is the new bobby orr
Bobby Orr has the single season plus minus record, with +124 which is beyond ridiculous
There are lots of fans who would agree with you that hockey fights are stupid -
I freaked out the first time I saw Bobby Orr. Eventually I got used to it. Then I saw Ray Bourque and the same thing happened.
I dislike Johnny Oduya (mostly cuz he's got a cool name and plays for the 'Hawks), Patrick Sharp (he's Canadian and very good), and Clayton Stoner (because someone has to and he's not Ryan Suter or Bobby Orr).
didn't you know that gunnerson was training with bobby Orr in his head after the 6 wins in a row?
Gunnarsson was down below the Stars net on the fore-check & then tries to go Bobby Orr just inside his own blue-line. Probably not ideal.
Petro, we know you're one of the best defensemen in the world. You don't have to wear your Bobby Orr cosplay every time you touch the puck.
Own a piece of hockey history with Priceless Toronto and Bobby Orr.
In that case, you need to a live chicken, a white candle and the spirit of the still very-alive Bobby Orr.
Mario Lemieux, Bobby Orr, Sidney Crosby and now All triple digits in games played.
Even if they wanted to talk about their own broken guy who played for years they have Bobby Orr.
Were more of a Bobby Orr kind of family, sorry Crosby
Definitely Bobby Orr's epic goal as he flew through the air across the goal after he scored
Decided finishing Bobby Orr’s book was a priority before lunch. It is now 2 PM. Whoops.
Didn't HNiC anoint him as a hall of famer in his first visit to Toronto. Not quite in Bobby Orr's class but certain to get in at 19
'Searching for Bobby Orr' author Stephen Brunt has called her

Blood, sweat, tears. No practice tomorrow 'cause there's no one left to beat. ~Bobby Orr
what time I haveto meet with my agent bobby Orr around 12
When Del Zotto becomes Bobby Orr then call me and say it was a bad trade. Trading him for a turd would have been beneficial
Oh I bet. Lemme guess you work in Toronto too. Too bad you don't know what that is because you wouldn't know hockey if you blew Bobby Orr

Remember Brookbank in game 4 against LA? He was Bobby Orr that night compared to Oduya tonight.
Jabari Parker goes end to end like Bobby Orr ... and possibly goal tends there like Patrick Roy.
