Regardless of anyone’s political views, meeting the President of the United States of America is and will always be an honor. This week, Boston Bruins goalie and Stanley Cup Finals MVP, Tim Thomas allowed one to slip past his pads. (Right through the five-hole)
Missing the opportunity to stand at the White House and to allow the President the chance to celebrate your accomplishment should be an honor, but Thomas decided to take the low road and make a political statement.
Instead of being recognized as a hero, Tim Thomas is the nation’s new jackass. Everyone should support his or her political views, but there is a time and a place. The way I see it, Tim Thomas should have missed the start of the Bruins regular season so he could live in a tent and become one of the Occupy Boston ninety-nine percenters.
I’m not clear what he attempted to accomplish with his recent snub, but I’m pretty sure Tim Thomas has displayed the mental acumen to become the party’s next Presidential candidate. In the future, if anyone finds themselves in a position to meet the President, don’t make yourself out to be an ass by turning down the invitation. Tim Thomas is now as un-American as the weird foods that can be seen on Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern! (I don’t even think Mr. Zimmern can stomach Tim Thomas’ actions!)
Tim Thomas is an idiot!
