BOSTON (CBS) — Bobby Orr is arguably the greatest hockey player to ever live, but there’s no disputing his place as the most legendary athlete in Boston sports history.
Today is Orr’s 65th birthday, and it’s certainly brought about quite the reaction from the hockey world.
Robert Gordon Orr, age 65? Today? Nah, must be a misprint. Doesn't look a day over 45 and makes us all feel old. Happy Birthday, Bobby.—
