I can't get away from this "story"

This has been the talk of Boston radio for the past few days.

The radio personalities seem to think Tim is disrespecting his team for not attending.

Callers however, seem to have a different opinion in most cases. Sometimes causing the radio hosts to hang up on them.

National Hockey League

The Boston Bruins and the Canadian media are all over Thomas because of his courageous stand.

Tim, if you're on this site, I say BRAVO!!

BTW......Go Leafs!!

You can't get clean in a dirty bathtub.

FYI -

He just posted a Ron Paul quote on his facebook page.

Right next to a JFK quote.

would it be proper to wish

would it be proper to wish that somebody who is invited to meet the president, that when they shake his hand. They just look him in the eye and say "Ron Paul is going to be the next president".

Right on!

A freedom fighter with integrity!
