This is a Blackhawks fan at the United Center wearing a Bobby Orr sweater. Now, there’s nothing wrong with wearing a throwback jersey if you’re going to wear a jersey. It let’s the people know “I’m not a bandwagon fan, I’ve been around for a while. I remember the olden days.”

However, choosing a Blackhawks Orr jersey just says “I am an idiot.”

Bobby Orr was a terrific hockey player in the 1970s, but it was as a Bruin. He would sign with the Blackhawks as a free agent in 1976 and proceed to play only 28 games over the next three seasons due to knee problems. He would then retire.

In fact, according to Orr, he never even cashed a paycheck from the Blackhawks, because he was paid to play hockey, and he wasn’t playing for the Blackhawks.

But maybe he got a cut of that guy’s jersey.
