The St. Louis Blues acquired center Ryan O’Reilly in a trade with the Buffalo Sabres last summer, and since then he’s endeared himself to his teammates with his work ethic, his fans with his on-ice performance, and now one “conflicted” Bruins fan in Boston.
John Corrado tweeted Tuesday evening that “Ryan O’Rielly bought me a guitar while seshing at guitar center in Boston,” including pictures.
He even had the receipt to prove it.
O’Reilly’s played guitar since he was a teenager and still uses it as a way to unwind and get his mind off hockey.
Buying instruments is certainly one way to win over an opposing fanbase–not the most time-efficient, and a tad pricey, but it seems to be getting results.
