NEW YORK -- The Bobby Orr book tour came to the NHL offices Tuesday when the 65-year-old Hall of Fame defenseman continued to promote his memoir, "Orr: My Story."
During three hours in Manhattan, Orr sat down with NHL.com for an interview, met with Commissioner Gary Bettman, appeared on "NHL Live" on NHL Network, and conducted a book signing for 150 people that lasted longer than the 60 minutes it was scheduled for because he wanted to make sure he got to everyone's copy.
From men wearing suits to women wearing Orr sweaters to young hockey players, Orr made a point to shake everybody's hand and thank them for coming.
The line stretched outside of the NHL Powered by Reebok Store onto 47th Street. Comments like "That's Bobby Orr" and "I can't believe that's him" were heard from people waiting for their turn at the table.
All of them smiled. Some of them cried.
"Am I red?" a blushing Colleen Manley, from Scranton, Pa., told NHL.com after meeting Orr and getting a picture with him. "This is a great day."
