Flying Eastward...With EVERYONE!!!!!!

I posted this before I heard that Peter Boyle, that dear man, had passed away.

"A source close to the negotiations confirmed that the Red Sox contingent in Southern California is flying back to Boston with pitcher Daisuke Matsuzka and his agent, Scott Boras, on board."

And I, Peter, say, "HOLY CRAP!"


And now, real life intrudes....sadly....

LOS ANGELES - "Peter Boyle, the tall, prematurely bald actor who was the tap-dancing monster in "Young Frankenstein" and the curmudgeonly father in the long-running sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond," has died. He was 71."

A loved one has passed away. What can I say? He will be missed by all of us. Especially me.....and whenever I say "Holy crap," well, I'm thinking of him. With tears.......

Hey Peter,
As promised, I'm commenting!
Despite the good news, I'm trying to get too excited until they announce a deal. I've had severe anxiety all week over this... and I'm afraid my heart can't take it if it doesn't go through! This certainly is good news though!!!! :D

I remember Boyle in a Summer Replacement Series in 1968 called "Comedy Tonight" on CBS, with Robert Klein & Madeline Kahn,& the movie "Joe" about a bigot with none of Archie Bunker's humor:

I saw him cross West 57th Street & Broadway on an afternoon walk by Colessium Books;

There was of course, "Young Frankenstein" as he played one hilarious monster;

Peter Boyle will be MISSED.
