Tim Thomas, Boston Bruins goalie, snubs President Obama
By DONOVAN SLACK | 1/23/12 3:14 PM EST
There was a notable absence during a White House reception this afternoon for the Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins: star goalie Tim Thomas.
Thomas refused the invite for "political reasons," Sports Illustrated reports.
The goaltender was the only member of the Bruins who wasn't at the ceremony, where President Obama congratulated the team on its victory. Thomas is a staunch conservative and is expected to explain his snub of the president on his Facebook page this evening.

Let me be the first. Gingrich/Thomas ‘12
He’ll soon have a dreadful accident...
What would it take to mass moon, ala Braveheart, the Obummer somewhere?
Only if there are no divorce records to unseal and publish.
Heck, the hocky puck itself would have more honor, prestige, intellect and history of achievement than the Cretin-in-Chief.
Hooray for Tim.
You da man!
(And of course, the ObamaLoon is not a man in any sense whatsoever.)
Good for Tim Thomas - a man who walks the talk.
How many people who are unhappy with Obama or dislike him would still accept a presidential invitstion to the White like this one?
Not that it would ever happen for me, but I would get great enjoyment out of saying “HELL NO !!!!”
If only he would give me the opportunity.
Congratulations to Tim Thomas! GOD BLESS Him!
Tim Thomas for President in 2012!!!!!!!!!!!
or, as our excellent broadcasters would say ‘TIM THOMAS SAYS NO”
Good for Mr. Thomas. He will not bow to the kenyan marxist bas***d.
Crap!! I’m from Boston and a die-hard Bruins fan I’m so thrilled he did that, but I’m curious as to how the vast majority of Mass. citizens are gonna handle it. They will be torn between loving their sports hero and worshipping Obama. As I always say, I’m so so glad to be out of that God-forsaken state.
As a life long RANGERS fan, I despise The Bruins. However, I am love'n TT right about now.
Tim Thomas deserves praise and acclaim for excercising his First Amendment right. I’m going to bet you he will be booed at the next home game. Don’t forget we are in the City of Boston, where the idiots roam.
Congradulation Tim Thomas. I only wish I could have said “kiss my .ss” the merry Kenyan. Thanks.
He wouldn’t bend, he wouldn’t bow, he wouldn’t burn.

Stand by for an IRS audit, Mr. Thomas.
Worse than that, you may get a full body cavity search from “Butch” Napolitano herself the next time you fly.
Nonetheless, you are now my favorite NHL player.
There is no way Thomas gets booed at a home game for snubbing the One. If anything he will get a standing 0! Bruins fans don’t tend do be a bunch of liberal socialists and if they were they would be beat up!
