Problem is Bruins get short shrift in the Boston sports scape, and Orr will always be the Bruins guy. No way Bergeron displaces a guy from another sport to be the 5th guy (even though he is one of the greatest two way players I have ever seen play).
I love Bergy, and I might say Pedro was the most fun to watch. I’m wondering where Brady would rank on your list? Or Papi or Neely? Not arguing with you about YOUR feelings, just curious.It's a dead heat between him and Pedro as my favorite athletes of all time. I will 100% be attending his HOF induction ceremony.
So their careers have essentially overlapped completely in NE, and I'd be really interested to know how many more Brady shirts have been sold over Bergeron's amongst NE area fans (I know Brady has more "national appeal".)I own 2 sports jerseys—Brady and Bergeron. That’s how much I respect him.
It’s admittedly a tough list (Williams, Orr, Brady, Russell, Bird, Yaz, Pedro, to name the most obvious players), with at least two arguable GOATs and some nationally recognized legends in their sports.
