What a great hockey player who not only had to battle all the other players on the ice but had to battle his diabetes every day as well.
This man was in great shape and went through major bodily punishment with every game he played. But his diet or intake before and during his games was somewhat unusual but necessary to control his diabetes.
After Bobby suffered two serious diabetic seizures during training camp due to improper nutritional breakfasts, the Flyers’ trainer came up with a pre-game diet plan which Bobby would follow the rest of his career. Before each game he would drink a bottle of Coca-Cola in which three spoonfuls of sugar had been added; then drink a half-full glass of orange juice, again, with added sugar between periods, and finally, a full glass of orange juice after the game. The trainer would also carry chocolate bars and a tube of glucose in his bag in the event of an emergency.
Orr, 68, revolutionized the game during a 12-year NHL career with his smooth skating style and his ability to carry the puck up the ice almost effortlessly. In Orr’s opinion, the NHL’s decision to remove two-line passes has not accomplished what the NHL had hoped it would. Instead, Orr believes it has not increased offense and made the game more dangerous.
“If you have to carry that puck out of your end and make a pass, skate with it, it makes it different. I don’t think (removing the line) has increased the offense, nor has the trapezoid. It’s made it a dangerous game, guys flying out of their end, looking for that long stretch pass and bang, they’re being hit. These guys are so much bigger and faster than when I played,” Orr said.
I would hope that Bobby was wearing proper footwear during his playing years as well as today to aid in healthy development for his feet. If not, I am hoping we will be fortunate enough to have the opportunity to help him with his needs and those of everyone who is reading this blog.
CEO of Dtfootwear.com that offers the best footwear found on the internet! GUARANTEE!
I have been in the footwear business for over 50 years and been trained by the best in the Therapeutic/Orthopedic world.
Please allow us to get you fitted with the proper footwear and hopefully, with our help, you will be working your way to success in keeping the disease out of your feet. We at “Shoes for Diabetic” and “Shoes Diabetic” know that proper footwear for you and the need to have the proper insert(s) to keep diabetes out of your feet is important. Footwear can be fashionable (and we have that) but the ultimate purpose of the shoe is to control upper support and to off-load any problems that you have on the top of your foot. If you are experiencing problems with the bottom of your feet, then it is the job of a proper, removable insert to correct them. Many people believe it is the shoe that solves all or most of the problems for diabetics or people who have major foot problems, but that is not always the case. Off-loading requires three elements, corrections, added support and developing added circulation, to keep this disease out of your feet.
We have the best athletic, casual, and fashionable men’s and women’s walking styles in the Orthopedic/Therapeutic/Comfort line of shoes in the country. We have the lengths and the hard-to-find widths. And we’re proud of our designs and construction in the world of “Women’s Wide Shoes.” Anyone who requires a proper fitting width must understand that the shoes must have an extension on the sole to properly contain their foot without the foot hanging over the shoe. What that means is that every width (in a higher percentage of our shoes) will be two times wider at the outsole of the shoe. For example, if you require a 6 E width, we’ll have an 8 E bottom for the base of that width. Therefore, no overhang of your feet and a perfect base to provide all the necessary support and balance.
A comfort shoe is not always a therapeutic shoe. And also keep in mind that a comfort shoe often has very little midsection support. The lack of midsection support allows the feet to move forward and laterally at the same time. These combined movements will increase stress to your feet. Please view all of our styles by going to our site dtfootwear.com
In addition to being capable of providing widths up to 9 E, 10 E and 14 E in both women’s and men’s fashionable styles of Therapeutic/Comfort footwear; we are offering a FREE GIFT to you!
