    A New York art exhibit is featuring nude paintings of Bobby Orr and several other former NHL players, none who posed.

    Orr's pretty much a recluse, often opting not to talk about himself or the game. I cannot imagine he's very happy right now.

    Flash is already in line.
  4. Unfortunately, Ken Dryden is now standing in front of the painting.

    Mercifully, there isn't a clamoring for a nude Dave Schultz portrait.

    Or Tiger Williams, the Missing Link.

    How is it possible to have a head shaped like that? It defies not only geometry, but anatomy.

    Hmmmm ... I never found Orr to be hot in a 'damn, I'd like to see that nekkid' kind of way.

    Now Stevie, on the other hand ...

    This quote from Park made laugh:

    "I see a picture of Bobby with some genitals, and a picture of Turk with some genitals. That's hard to take," said Park.

    Yeah, like Park never saw his teammates 'nads before. I'm sure the old Garden had separate shower stalls in the dressing room, with a loofah and body wash in each.

    You left out the best part of Park's quote: "I definitely would think Bobby would be uncomfortable with it. Derek, in his heyday, would have posed for it."

    Meanwhile, this story sums up the Bruins quite well. Thirty-five years ago, they were so great they inspired straight men to paint them nude decades later. Now, they wouldn't be recognized in a T station.

    Flash is waiting for Mike Ricci.

    Does the painting of Orr have him flying through the air, his stick extending upward?

    Don't you mean downward?
