Chicken Little: NHL hockey legends are falling from the sky!

Bobby Orr now tackles innocent bystanders outside the Boston Garden or whatever they call it these days.

SUBMITTED BY: Kathie Fife LOCATION: Boston, Mass. (2010)

Brace yourself for attack.

Bobby Orr, the Boston Bruins and Hockey Hall of Fame legend known for his “flying goal” to win the 1970 Stanley Cup, is gonna get you.

In real life, Orr is the most charming man on the planet. But if you don’t know the context of this pose, you might think he wants to behead you with his hockey stick.

Kathie is in the duck-and-cover safety position they taught school kids in the 1950s whenever there was an air raid drill.

For all you non-Bostonians and non-hockey fans, here’s the iconic sports moment captured by Boston Herald photographer Ray Lussier:
