Hopefully, by now, you've heard about the Boston Bruins' Tim Thomas skipping the gala at the White House.
I just wanted to share with you the best line about it I've read, and it comes from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe:
"Tim Thomas yesterday had a chance to tell the leader of the free world what he thinks it means to be an American today. Not just any American, mind you, but an Olympian, a multimillionaire, a hero in the city where he works, and a member of a championship team that has been a source of joy (and sorrow, too) to millions of Bostonians for nearly a century.
"Instead, Thomas took his pads and blocker to another end of town and issued his statement. He could have talked to the president. Instead, he mailed one in from the pizza stand. I think he missed his chance. I think he missed the point of the day."
