    People choose to protest in different ways. Me, I have three flags flying in front of my house, the American flag, the Canadian flag, and the Israeli flag. I belong to my local chapter of the Tea Party, and I have written congress on numerous occassions about my dissatisfaction. Thomas is a patriot just like the OWS folks were before thy got coopted by the dingies of our society..

    Exactly! This guy's just a Danimal wannabe.

    And that one really was a slap in Obama's face because Obama is a Bears fan (The only thing I firmly agree with Obama on is sports teams). I'd be devastated if I was president and the best player from the '85 Bears didn't want to meet me.

    Man talk about a slap in the face to the President. I mean don't get me wrong, Thomas has to right to express his opinion and all but his hate for the President is that high that he wouldn't support his team on a very traditional event. They mention in the article that some Nascar drivers refuse to meet the president (which doesn't surprise me considering most drivers are deep rooted southerners).



    He was busy.

    NASCAR's not a real sport anyway.

    I am sure Hazlnut, you can link to your outrage over those who refused to attend events under Bush, such as Manny Ramirez. My guess is you supported that.... then.

    Several athletes refused to meet with Bush.

    I'm pretty sure Manny just couldn't find his way there.

    yeah, and I'm about as interested in Tim Thomas's politics as I am about Obama's slap shot.
