Kick Save and a Beauty!

The Boston Bruins, defending Stanley Cup Champions, were invited to the White House yesterday by President B. Obama.  These types of public relations opportunities have been commonplace for years.    Tim Thomas, the outstanding Bruins Goalie, didn't make the appearance and issued this statement ...

"I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People. 


This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government. 


Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL. 


This is the only public statement I will be making on this topic. TT"

That little poster should read, "Dope". This player took a special moment for the Stanley Cup Champions and made it about him and his personal views. It is a great thing in this country to be able to exercise your rights as a citizen. It is also a great thing to know when to do it.
As we know, the cup doesn't come too easy. So, when you get it you want to savor the perks that come with it. This dick figured team should be spelled with an I. And, he took some of that special moment away from his team mates.
I'll root for this guy when he's in the crease. When he steps off the ice, he's not worth my time.
