Sarah in goal, no save.
If you ever needed a reason to root against the Philadelphia Flyers: Sarah Palin dropped the puck at the home opener of the Flyers against the NY Rangers According to the story: ""The NHL said it did not view the Flyers’ invitation to be politically motivated. “Governor Palin is a supporter of the sport, which she has proclaimed publicly,” NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said. “As a public figure who has a very public connection with hockey, her recent associations with the Flyers and other NHL franchises is not surprising and, in our view, not inappropriate.” There were no apparent signs of protest outside the arena, and one fan held a sign that read “Vote Obama” behind New York’s net. A few other held “Obama-Biden” signs behind her."" http://www.ajc.com/sports/content/sports/stories/2008/10/11/palin_hockey_game.html?cxntlid=homepage_tab_newstab&imw=Y So, a vice-presidential candidate appearing at a venue with say, 15,000 people in it, during a political campaign is NOT political. I'm fairly certain if Obama jogged onto the field for a coin toss between two NFL teams or threw out the first pitch in a MLB game the reichwingers would be on it immediately. Of course it was nice of the NHL to ask Governor Palin, whom they never heard of until about 40 days ago, to just drop on by. There was a happy ending; the NY Rangers improved to 4-0. It was probably the Obama supporter behind the NY net, hexxing the Flyers. I'll bet Sarah, the Arctic Fox, wishes she'd brought her witchdoctor doctor with her.
