Brent Burns and Bobby Orr share beard-tugging moment

Greatness knows greatness

You know when you get to meet a hero and you just want to shake their hand to get the sense they’re a real person? That’s probably how Bobby Orr felt when he got to meet Brent Burns. That’s certainly how he felt when he met Brent Burns’ beard, as we have photographic evidence.

Orr may go beardless, but the legend knows a damn fine beard when he sees one and Burns isn’t one to deny one of the greatest players of all time the privilege. I hope Orr recognizes how lucky he is.
