    Boo Palin? You betcha | Philadelphia Daily News | 10/13/2008

    Here's a video of it where you can see the thumbs down and Obama/Biden signs in the background:
    YouTube - Hockey mom Sarah Palin boo'd at hockey game.


    PS. Icegoat, padd, Jeanie...you're not dreaming. I posted a hockey thread! :lol:

    :hah: thats funny.

    Well all I have to say is, if the Republican Party thought this would be a good stunt for an unknown battleground state... I'd have to say it failed.

    However! In hockey we have to take into consideration... The fans do in fact Boo the best players from the other team. So a good mind game for a person who may or may not know the function of hockey fans :eyebrow:

    on a side note... I didnt watch it... I cant stand either of those Clubs hahaha.

    Also keep in mind that Philadelphia fans boo everything, including our own national anthem at the NBA All-Star game a few years back.

    :rotfl: this is very true.

    Philly is a tough crowd. So are the Rags Fans that I'm sure were in attendance.... lmao... All I know is if I were in a political position and I had to drop a ceremonial puck, it sure as hell wouldnt be for either of those two teams.

    If I were in a political position I probably wouldn't do anything to be in the spotlight at a sporting event, period.

    I'm sick of the whole "hockey mom" thing. I don't fucking want a hockey mom, I want someone who can lead the country.

    Yeah, but it's probably not often that some do it while carrying Obama/Biden flyers at the same time.

    Like the author said, you don't mix politics with sports. People watching want to see a sports game not a political stunt. If it were Obama, he probably would have received boos too. The only difference is that he's not riding on a "hockey dad" reputation that is supposed to endear him to voters who appreciate hockey.

    I'm pretty sure they were booing the singer and not the anthem itself. I think Patti LaBelle sang it and it was terrible.

    Its still hilarious. Its not like its someone that deserves to be booed like Rosanne Barr. Being Pattie LaBelle is even more funny in a way since she's a Philly girl. (-I think)

    EDIT: well, I missed the it was terrible at first. But still, I think I'll bypass Philly if I ever pass through. That's a tough crowd.
