Colin Brown tweets this pic of Brian Boyle playing some pickup hockey in Hingham, Massachusetts...
...got to love professional hockey players participating in a pickup game. No chance of him getting hurt there (eye roll).
...btw how miserable does Boyle look in the pic?
H/T to good friends of the blog We Bleed Blue.
Well, at least the local guys will get a thrill. I know I did a few years back when Kyle Wilson of the Washington Capitals came to our local rink one day. It was a blast!
@TheNYRBlog so they should sit around thumb in ass? it’s a lockout, dudes aren’t going to sit home hoping.
Love that he's rocking the liberty jersey in a pick-up game. Probably just to make sure no one mistakes him for one of his 30 brothers. "Nope, I'm the one that ACTUALLY plays pro hockey..." Can't even tell which teams he's on, looks like everyone else is in white or red.
@johnnyb3910 I'm pretty sure it's a NYR practice jersey. Either way I think it should be inside out. Pretty sure in Canada when pros play shinny/pickup they turn their pro affiliation inside out. Tradition or something...
@_Jack Practice jersey was what I meant. Now that you mention it though, I'm kinda surprised the NHLPA hasn't told these guys to lose all their team stuff. The minute the lockout started you couldn't buy player gear from nhl.com, surprised the players are still showing allegiances to teams, feel like he should be wearing an NHLPA jersey.
