CFN – We owe Tea Party Tim Thomas a debt of gratitude. It’s a slow week in the NHL. No major news out there as the All Star break approaches. Nobody really cares about the All Star game so Mr. Thomas deciding to be a totally classless human being is making the news far and wide in sports columns.
I have a friend that works for the US government and we once chatted how he had been on “Bush Duty” ie; he was assigned to protect the President of the United States of America; a role that would require him to step in Harms Way if the President attacked.
I asked him how he personally resolved it as he certainly wasn’t a Bush supporter and he said:
It’s the office of the President you Dumb Ass!
Yes, Mr. Thomas is a free man; chiefly because his country has a President and is a Democracy. Mr. Thomas was not PERSONALLY invited to the White House.
His TEAM of which he’s simply one player as great as he is a goalie was invited to be honoured. Instead of being a TEAM PLAYER he stole the spotlight from his team mates and made it a platform to espouse his personal political position.
This is wrong on so many levels. The Bruins, in the thick of a race to win Lord Stanley’s Cup again so they are trying to not have this impact their team.
What do you think of Mr. Thomas’ play Hockey fans? You can post your comments below.
