    Yeah, that was about the sloppiest the team has looked since October... And Thomas wasn't even in the lineup

    Don't really care to be honest, however regardless of who the president is I think when you're invited to the White House, you go.

    I think what Thomas did was a little juvenile but meh, it's his life and I'm not going to lose any sleep over it because I have more important things to worry about.

    Like Gingrichs ex wives.

    It's only insulting on my part if I thought you were a heterosexual. I don't.

    It reflects on the people that choose not to show up more than anything.
    People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.

    you really need to cut out this hate speech. The Good Reverend is comfortable with his flaming heterosexuality and his stunning good looks, Everyone hits on him. But alas, I am happily married to a fine beautiful woman, you can see her in the tavern.... Your attempts to slam me by inferring I am a homosexual makes you look bigoted and quite archie bunkerish.

    It's only a slam if you think homoesexuality is somehow bad or inferior. Is that what you think?

    What is homoesexuality [sic]?


    Look chief, This thread is about Tim Thomas not attending the Obama shindig, many athletes did the same under bush. I'm sure you can link to you calling these athletes "idiots" as well, somewhere in the DP archive. I'll wait. This thread is not about your use of hate speech to slam me by calling me gay.

    Why should anyone have to go? As far as I read Obama just had them there for the congrats and gimme a signed jersey. I haven't read anything about a luncheon. I wouldn't go either.
