Senator's Hockey Injuries Stand Out At NHL Champs' White House Visit
Yahoo Sports ^ | 01/24/12 | Ben Maller

Posted on 01/24/2012 9:06:07 AM PST by AngelesCrestHighway

NHL teams have visited the White House for years after winning the Stanley Cup, but it's a safe bet that never before has a Senator shown up more beaten and broken than the hockey players.

Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) was part of the ceremony honoring the Boston Bruins 2011 Stanley Cup win, appearing like he had just come from a knock-down, drag-out ruckus.

Kerry, 68, suffered two black eyes and a broken nose during a "friendly game of hockey" with family and buddies over the Christmas break, according to TheHill.com. If that's the result of a friendly game, we don't want to be a part of an unfriendly one.

Is it just me or do the “injuries” look a little too symetrical? The two identical red lines near his eyes look like they were done with a scalpel.....Little Nip/Tuck going on Senator?

If the injury was indeed hockey (I am suspicious) then it shows incredibly poor judgment. A 68 year old man does not belong in an ice hockey game - duh!!!

We are supposed to believe these injuries are a month old? I don’t believe it.

Just because hussein won the last election, they think all people in this country are stupid. Lurch’s bruises are a result of plastic surgery to remove the old bags under his eyes. If the gigolo could find a young, rich widow he’d get rid of his other old bag too.

You can’t get two black eyes with one punch or a single hit with a stick. This had to be two separate blows. If he took one accidental blow, the action would have stopped. So this story doesn’t ring true.

The Bruins best player, goalie Tim Thomas, skipped the White House visit. He gave this (awesome) statement:

“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”

Have some compassion. It was horrible. There he was, sitting in the stands, telling everyone sitting nearby how he served in Viet Nam, when suddenly, this puck came flying over the top of the glass......

For Lurch, it’s now known as “ facial reassignment surgery” he’s trying to stop being an equine-American.

Sorry he got hurt. No Kerry fan, but I love it when older Americans are active participants in life.

More power to him!

I think the funni9est comment was posted on one of the news sites carrying the story:

"His wife caught him drinking from the toilet, and slammed the lid on his head."

you can with a broken nose. (been there, done that.) but his nose looks normal.

My friend and his Nissan had a nasty encounter with a dump truck and looked fine within 2 weeks. These bruises look fresh.

Yes, they do look very symmetrical, which is hard to achieve with a hockey stick. Watch for lurch to look “refreshed” in a couple weeks. Question is, why did he go out so soon after his cosmetic surgery?
