Another welcomed gift arrived in Rockies today. Conor Boyd a friend of Jim's dropped into Rockies with a Bobby Orr autobiograghy book signed by the NHL Hall of Famer himself. Conor who is originally from Belfast has resided in the Toronto area for the past 40 years and always checks into ROCKIES with amazing finds when he is on holiday in Northern Ireland... CONOR hard to top this one mate.
This book is very special as it is Bobby Orr's first autobiograghy even though he left the game of hockey back in 1978 when he retired from the Chicago Blackhawks. Previously Bobby made his name with the Boston Bruins where he set numerous records.
He is the only defenceman to win the NHL League Scoring Title together with holding the record for the most points+ assists in a single NHL season for a defenceman. His list of achievements goes on and on.
Out of interest Bobby's grandfather Robert came from outside of Belfast at Ballymena and came to Parry Sound ( Bobby's birth town ) in Ontario in the eary 20th century.
Thanks again to Conor for a superb item.
