“America’s #1 Hockey Mom” probably thought her children would act as a shield. Sheeeeit, you betta ask somebody.
That’s cold but that’s how Philly do. Did they really think it would go any other way? I’m sure no one noticed the attempt to drown out the boos by turning up the music. Too bad Flyers owner and McCain supporter Ed Snider couldn’t block out the Obama/Biden signs in the crowd.
Let this episode be a lesson to team owners who insist on shoving their politics down the throat of the fan. You too will fail especially if you live in Philadelphia.
UPDATE: By the time Palin dropped the puck Saturday night, she was used to the boos. She had been getting them since 3:35 PM that afternoon.
Don’t you love seeing the mascot jump in the pile when athletes are celebrating a major win or title? They never get any love even though they hyped up the 11th man for the whole season. You’d think a team would throw the mascot some groupie scraps like the girl with a second head or missing several fingers and toes but nope. Mascots get nothing and like it.
All glory be to failblog.org. After watching this video, you’ll gain a better understanding of why athletes want nothing to do with mascots. No one wants to catch the suck. Maybe Shaun Livingston messed with Clippers mascot Brevin Knight and got the horns.
It would be wrong not to acknowledge Clutch’s attempt to salvage what little dignity a person in a mascot outfit can have left at the end.
