Sarah Palin's carpet may swing St. Louis Blues fans to vote for Obama come November 4th, if they weren't already leaning that way. The blue carpet laid out for Republican party Vice President candidate Sarah Palin, sniped Blues goaltender Manny Legace as he came out from the locker room for the pre-game skate around. Legace wound up allowing two goals on 12 shots before leaving the game with a hip flexor injury related to the fall. The Blues got killed by the Kings, 4-0.
When Sarah Palin was introduced it appeared most of the stadium was booing her, perhaps because her presence caused the stupid Blues workers to place a carpet in front of the Blues bench, right where they step onto the ice. I noticed that as Palin walked alongside the bench before she dropped the ceremony puck, she tried to give Blues players quick shakefives (it's where you give a half-assed handshake but you try to grasp the other hand). Most of the Blues players were clearly not having it and she basically was just reaching in and tapping their gloves.
Anyway, I guess this treatment from Blues fans and players is better than what she received when she dropped the puck in Philadelphia, where she received a bombardment of BOO's and show us your BOOOOBS.
I still don't know who I want to vote for....
