There's stars.  There's super-stars.  Then there is Bobby Orr.

Henry Holland: His career ended just before I got in to hockey, I really wish I could have seen him play.

The photo that OtherLittleGuy posted is easily one of the greatest sports photos ever taken, I love seeing that.

/Happy birthday Mr. Orr

That goal was the over time winner(!) of the Stanley Cup(!!) in the fourth game(!!!) of the 1970 Stanley Cup Finals... I was nearly 5 and thought that was a game I wanted to play... played for years, still love it...

Thanks Bobby, you got this kid hooked that night 43ish years ago.  Happy Birthday OLD man...

weirdneighbour: The guy only played 12 years, the last few being injury plagued, imagine his stats if he had a healthy career.

I'm not a hockey fan, but 12 years seems like plenty for any professional contact athlete.

His 1970/71 season is easily one of the greatest seasons in hockey history (+124 with 139 points in a 78 game season). He changed the game forever.

Dafatone: Huh.  Bobby Orr is much, much younger than I though.

I always thought he was a 50s and 60s guy, for some reason.  Amazing what one black and white picture will do.

That's what they said about that picture of me and your mom and a goat.
