When Bobby Orr went horizontal after scoring the game-winning goal in Game 4 of the 1970 Stanley Cup Final, he gave the Bruins a sweep of the Blues and gave fans an image that has lasted for decades.
Two moments, frozen in history, will vie for the hearts of New Englanders in the Boston's Greatest Sports Moment championship.
It's hard to argue with either moment's worthiness as a finalist. Some day, Varitek's celebration — or Dave Roberts' steal, or Curt Schilling's bloody sock, or any other moment from that epic quest for the title — may be immortalized in a statue, just as Orr's leap is outside the TD Garden. Both moments redefined what it meant to be a fan of the teams, and time surely will never dull their shine.
