Jan 23, 2012 2:26pm Battered Sen. John Kerry Injured in Hockey Game, Honors Bruins at White House

Hockey is a rough sport; just ask Senator John Kerry, D-Mass.

The senator was attending a ceremony for his hometown hockey team, the Boston Bruins, at the White House today when he publicly debuted the remnants of his own hockey injury.

Kerry appeared to have two black eyes and a swollen nose. His senate office said the black and blue was caused by a nose injury during a hockey game the senator participated in recently.

“He’s totally fine,” Kerry spokeswoman Whitney Smith told ABC News, “Very ironically he busted his nose recently playing ice hockey, so the Bruins can certainly relate.”

So the rumor Teresa slugged him after she caught him using a bottle of Hunt’s ketchup isn’t true?

SUCH a CREEPY, CREEPY person——his marriage history is WAY MORE CREEPIER than Newts! The leftists have sick twisted minds that can’t ever grasp “Common Sense” and honor, courage, justice, and duty. They are immoral and should never have the ability to make law-—because Just law is beyond their ability. At least, Newt knows when he messes up and admits his weaknesses. The Marxists think evil is “good” and in their fascist ways—tries and force unconstitutional laws on the ignorant masses-—such as there is a “right” to sodomy. They are sick.

Busted nose, TWO black eyes? The big goofy Ichabod Crane spaz probably just fell down and hit his face on the ice. I love they way they don’t provide and details and leave it to our imaginations. Lots of libs are probably saying, ooh, what a hunk; he got into a fight on the ice.

How do you ask a man to be the last man between a puck and a goal? My face was checked in a fashion reminiscent of jenjis khan. We randomly shot pucks at the opponents...

Two black eyes and a broken nose? That’s three purple hearts and a silver star.

Has anyone looked at the steps of the capitol building? Did he toss them yet?

Even if it did happen in a hockey game, my bet is it was intentionally self-inflicted.

BS!! I played hockey through college and have been a diehard NHL/Bruins fan for some 30 years. I have never seen two identical (exact same) black eyes due to a hockey injury.

More like plastic surgery.

Hey! I’m sorry! I thought the puck was on his face!
Somebody said, “Look at that schmuck”, and I thought they said “puck”. We was playin’ with a high cross bar.

Considering the fact he was in a combat zone where people were attacking with sticks and firing off rubber bullets, Lurch should be able to pencil whip another one of these as well as a Purple Heart.

Yup, looks like he had some cosmetic surgery. It’s hysterical that he would think that people would buy his BS hockey story!

How do you break your nose and get the eye while wearing a cage?

His senate office said the black and blue was caused by a nose injury during a hockey game the senator participated in recently.

There he was, just sitting in the stands, telling the guy next to him how he once served in Viet Nam, when suddenly this puck came flying over the glass....
