In what will likely be the only hockey-related post I ever write, let me say that Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, who refused to attend his team’s meeting with President Obama, may be a teabagging wingnut of the first order. But you have to give him credit for his authentic 18th century capitalization stylings.
“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”
Now if he’ll only play goalie in a tri-cornered hat.
