Boston Bruins visit White House minus Tim Thomas

Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas says he didn’t attend the White House ceremony with President Barack Obama honoring the team for its 2011 Stanley Cup Championship because he believes the federal government “has grown out of control” and threatens rights and liberties.

Thomas said on his Facebook page Monday night he was exercising his rights. He said it wasn’t “about politics or party,” and he blames both political parties.

The veteran goaltender basically lead the Bruins to their sixth Stanley Cup and was MVP of last year’s playoffs.

Personally, I am siding with Thomas on this one….Occupy Wall Street!!!  Screw the 1%….stand with the 99%.  Oh yea, we also carry the hugely popular Tim Thomas NHL hockey figure….Check it out….word to your mother!

PRESIDENT OBAMA to Appear on MYTHBUSTERS!

No, your eyes do not deceive you! The Mythbusters have made it to the White House! The story comes from E! Online and makes some great news for Mythbusters fans and Democrats alike! Read on…

Sweeps, shmeeps. Mythbusters is creating its own must-see TV come December, when its very special guest star will be none other than President Barack Obama.

We know he’s the commander in geek, but what prompted the leader of the free world to stop by a basic cable show?

As part of an effort to highlight science education (it sure ain’t to get more air time), the commander-in-chief will appear on a Dec. 8 question to ask hosts/mad scientists Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage to test the myth that the Greek scientist Archimedes inspired a generations of little boys with magnifying glasses by using the sun’s reflection on mirrors to set fire to invading Roman fleets back in 214 B.C.

“I can announce today that I taped a special guest appearance for their show, although I didn’t get to blow anything up,” Obama said. “I was a little frustrated about that.”

Incidentally, while Obama’s appearance is intended to boost science education, it’s no doubt a blow to history buffs everywhere. The show first busted this so-called death ray myth back in 2004. Challenged by fans to retest their findings, they busted it again in 2006 with help from MIT students.

 

Um, third time’s a charm?
