In Response to Re: Hey Check this vid of Tyler & Taylor arriving in LA - HALL IS WEARING A SOX CAP
actually, this thread makes a good point. Hall knew about the talks going on between Edmonton and Boston, so by him wearing a Boston hat in public right before the draft, he was likely trying to make the subtle hint that he would prefer getting drafted by Boston. Obviously in the end, Edmonton doesnt care where he would "prefer" to play, but its likely that Hall was hoping that this could have made a trade btwn the 1 and 2 picks more likely. There's just know way that he happened to be wearing a Boston hat the day of the draft (when he knew he would be drafted by Edmonton or Boston).

Know what else is possible? Maybe the kid is a Red Sox fan. I'm going to guess he wasn't trying to influence the draft by his choice of headwear.
Lowe: Steve, we're talking Hall.
Steve: Kevin, get in here. You're not going to believe what I am seeing.
Lowe: Coming, dear. What is it?
Steve: It's Taylor Hall, and he's wearing a RED SOX HAT!
Lowe: Well, that sure does change everything. Let's see. If he's wearing a Sox hat, maybe he's trying to tell us something. Maybe he's trying to tel us that he wants to play in Boston. I mean, if he wanted to play here, he'd be wearing a Rough Riders hat, right? Well, okay kid. I get it. You would rather play in Boston. Who wouldn't? Boston is an incredible city. It has everything any city in the world has, but it small enough that you can get around. They have all the teams, all the culture, the ocean, the Cape, and super hot chicks. Know what we have here in Edmonton? The Stampede. In Calgary. I don't care where the snot nosed kid wants to play. He's an Oiler.
Steve: But he is WEARING A SOX HAT!
