Fun with typos

The byline on this story is hilarious. Talk about writing your own ticket out of town.

The byline denotes the writer of the article. The article on Dan Boyle given permission to seek a trade what written by a named named...Dan Boyle. Situational irony much.

I like the potential for self-promotion this offers. From the article:

"Boyle, a top puck-moving defenseman who helped the Lightning to a Stanley Cup championship in 2004, signed a six-year, $40 million deal that includes a no-trade clause before last February's trade deadline."

Good. But it could have been better:

"Boyle, widely considered the best player in the NHL, is perhaps the handsomest man ever to lace up a pair of skates. Most outside observers agree that the popular defenceman's point production and telegenic good looks merit a hefty contract extension from the Lightning along with a personal introduction to Tampa resident Brooke Hogan."

Actually, it was written by Scott Burnside. The "Dan Boyle" in the byline is a mistake.

Somewhere along the line, ownership should be more clued in than to find itself needing to trade the guy that just signed a long, expensive extension. You go find complementary pieces to put around the guy with the long, expensive extension. You don't sign so many other guys to long, expensive contracts that you need to jettison him.

Someone should make Tampa trade them a prospect just to take Boyle. Call it the Stupidity Tax.

Wow... normally the only publication that let's the player ghost-write the article is the Ottawa Sun.
