Bobby Orr, was  my hero since I was 9.   I got to meet him a few years back when he was in Saskatoon for a fundraiser. 

On this same day 1970, my mom went into the hospital but delivered my youngest brother the next day. When my dad came home he announced to us that they were naming him Robert. Of course in my 11 year old mind I thought it was because of Bobby Orr. But my dad promptly said, "Mom said to tell Rhonda she's not allowed to call him Bobby" .  I called him Bobby plenty when they weren't around. LOL

ps... I'm still obsessed with the Boston Bruins.
