So this appeared on Tyler Seguin’s Twitter feed on Saturday night, before being hastily deleted:

"Only steers and queers in Texas and I'm not a cow." - @tylerseguin92

Seguin, you’ll recall, was traded to the Dallas Stars on July 4 in a seven-player trade with the Boston Bruins, after Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli infamously said that Seguin had to “commit to being a professional.”

The quote is a line from “Full Metal Jacket,” director Stanley Kubrick’s classic war film. As the Sgt. Hartman said to “Private Cowboy” after he revealed he was from Texas:

“Holy dog[expletive] Private Cowboy, only steers and queers come from Texas, Private Cowboy. And you don’t look like a steer, so that kind of narrows it down.”

And it gets sort of hilariously vulgar after that …
