Hockey Mom Takes Center Ice

Did you hear the one about the guy who went a hockey game and a political brawl broke out?

Or did you hear the one about a hockey mom who took center ice to drop the puck and got booed?

Only in Philadelphia, where fans are known to throw snowballs at Santa Claus and burn sacred cows in effigy could this happen and did at last nights season opener for the Flyers. The city of Joe Six Packers have no shame. They will let any less then worthy opponents of their Broad Street Bullies sensibilities know where to stick it at the drop of a hockey puck.

Being from North Jersey I know. My Devils, Mets, Giants, Nets and Knicks have been locked in a life and death struggle with their Philly based conference rivals my entire career as a sports fan. I know the fans from the City of Brotherly Love and they ain’t too friendly to the people they don’t like. Hell, even at Gino’s they won’t even sell you a Philly Cheese Steak if you don’t order it in English. That’s hard man.

So as our First Mom of Hockey came onto the ice to drop the ceremonial first puck at the Flyers season opener a raft of Bronx Cheers (sorry Philly) welled up in the stands. I’m proud of them. The First Hockey Mom even dressed her daughter Piper in a Flyer jersey to provide cover and win sympathy from the hard nosed fans. It didn’t work.

If you live by the hockey stick you lose by the hockey stick. Palin’s cheap attempt to claim the Joe Six Pack hockey vote was penalized by the fans. She was called for high sticking and was sent to the penalty box.

Republicans have politicized religion, science and education. We draw the line at center ice. Vote no to the republican control of the NHL!

Rocky! Rocky! Rocky!

I hope the Phillies go all the way.
