From “Tebowing” to “Dufnering,” sports fans have proven to be both very witty and very annoying on social media.
But there’s a new social media “planking”-style craze out there that Bostonians can appreciate. One of the city’s most beloved sports icons is the subject of the latest fad, as “Orring” is officially taking over Bruins fans’ Twitter and Facebook feeds.
“Orring” is a play on Bobby Orr‘s famous photo, “The Goal,” where the B’s legend is flying through the air celebrating his famous Stanley Cup-clinching goal. Even professional golfer Keegan Bradley has joined the party. The fad was started by Boston Advertising company Connelly Partners.
Check out a couple of shots below to see what “Orring” is and tweet out your “Orring” photos using the hashtag #OrringNESN.
