Brian Boyle was once my favorite player. Guy was big, slow, not much skill but god he had heart. He’d go with just about anybody no matter what the outcome:
Not always the best look. Yeah, he had trouble taking off a single glove. Carkner fed him a few thousand times and he didn’t even defend himself, but you know what? At the end of the day he loved the Rangers and he loved America. One of my finest memories came on July 4, 2013. I was hanging out with Feverboyrex and he decided to shoot Boyler a tweet. We turned on ‘The Patriot’ and not 5 minutes in, we had bedlam. Boyle acknowleged him and it was like we won our own personal Revolutionary War. We ran around the room waving the American Flag while BLASTING the Overture of 1812. It was amazing.
So what happened after this? Well, Boyle signed with Tampa and got married. Feverboyrex looked up his wedding registery and even bought him a grapefruit peeler (hey rex, if you have the receipt, insert it here). No thank you, no nothing. Hmm.. whatever, we’ll shake it off. I mean lets be honest, whenever the boys get a new girlfriend they tend to disappear for a bit. It’s the circle of life. While most guys pretend they run the show we all know who really do in the back of our minds. I’m too proud to say it, but Beyonce got it right. ANYWAYS, Boyler got traded to Toronto where he was a veteran leader on a very young team. He was a great fit with Matty Martin and seemed to have maybe found a new home. Now, I’m clearly a Rangers fan, but i was happy for Boyle. I always have been. He figured out his life and was serving a purpose in the NHL. And then… and then I saw this.
TRAITOR!! TRAAAAAITOR! There is NO reason to sign with the New Jersey fucking Devils. They suck, have no future and have no where to go. This has been a long-con the entire time. You didn’t care about fans. You didn’t care about the NYR or 4th of July. You cared about 1 thing- $$$$$. You are a modern day Benedict Arnold and I dont care who knows it. Have fun being a poor mans Bobby Holik in a city that smells like big foots dick.
