Post a great sporting picture

Now here's one for the hockey fans.




Although the above may be recognized as the most famous photograph in New England sports history, or for that matter, all of hockey history, many may not know the story behind the photograph.


It was taken by a veteran photographer, the late Ray Lussier of Atkinson, N.H. Ray started his career in 1964, briefly working for the old Haverhill Journal before the paper folded. Now shooting for the old Boston Record-American he found himself in the right place at the right time!!


Here, Bobby Orr scored his first Stanley Cup-winning goal for the Bruins. It was only 40 seconds into overtime and Orr's magical split-second flying-through-the-air is a moment in time immortalized by Lussier's camera. So many who recognize this photograph were not even born at the time it was taken.


The venue was Boston Garden. It was Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals against St. Louis. Outside the arean, it was a hot 93-degree afternoon on a Sunday in May, the 10th, 1970 - Mother's Day. A goal by Johnny Bucyk evened up the score at 3 all forcing overtime. The Bruins first Cup in 29 years finally seemed anything but elusive and as a bonus could be earned on home ice.

The Greatest

Muhummad Ali


Pictured here winning the title from Sonny Liston in 25 February 1964, Ali (who was known as Cassius Clay at this point) became arguably the sporting icon of the 20th century. After beating Liston, he remarked: �I upset Sonny Liston, and I just turned 22-years-old - I must be the greatest.�

How about famous baseball shots.




Babe Ruth's called shot was the home run hit by Babe Ruth in the fifth inning of Game 3 of the 1932 World Series, held on October 1, 1932 at Wrigley Field in Chicago. During the at-bat, Ruth made a pointing gesture. Although this is not confirmed, the story goes that Ruth pointed to the center field bleachers during the at-bat. It was supposedly a declaration that he would hit a home run to this part of the park. On the next pitch, Ruth hit a home run to center field.

Thank you very much for that picture. I remember those days very well and that picture brings back the best memories of my childhood. Your right my friend, that is New Englands most famous picture.....ever. To this day, you can walk down the street and chat with just about anyone about that game and they'll remember it all!


I miss hockey and it's glory. I miss the beer and my uncles (and aunts, we're a hockey family) sitting around the television while the game was on, talking about past glory's and defeats to the only rival team that really mattered....The Montreal Canadians. Man, you could cut the anxiety with a damn knife when they were coming to town!

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
