This is by far one of the most ironic pieces I am going to write because last year at this time, I was teaching Nick to take over Jess Hagerty’s sports editor position and mine.
Well Nick, I finally disagree with your thoughts; it had to happen someday, right?
Sarah Palin, stay out of our sports? No. 1: Do not act like she comes from a third world country here. Alaska probably has advancements that you never, let alone your great state of New Jersey, has ever heard of. Shouldn’t you be a Devils fan anyway?
Talk about supporting the “hometown” team.
Believe it Nick, Sarah Palin is an icon now, whether people can “stomach” her mommy ways or not. Which brings me to point No. 2: Are you saying that there aren’t “soccer moms” that can be cheering in Flyer audience?
You say, “The down-home hockey mom may work in Moosejaw, but not here.”
Well, I guess if I want to be a mommy and a sports fan like I do, I better get out of the “City of Brotherly Love” before I am forced out by tenacious sport.
How ironic too, that Philly has this coined nickname when all I hear is complaints and booing when their team isn’t up to their standards.
Now, for No. 3 reason, which I find to be the most important: What do the Dixie Chicks, Bruce Springsteen and Oprah Winfrey have in common?
They all PREACH, and I mean PREACH on a stage in front of millions and put their beloved Obama on a pedestal.
It’s funny how they aren’t “shushed.” Oh, wait. Is that because they are Democrats and their auras are radiantly shining RED?
But now, Ed Snider wants to share his views, which he is allowed by the First Amendment and now he gets a bad “rap?” Screw that.
Talk about silencing the other side. He has as much of a right as anyone to stand-up to critics and do what he feels is right.
He has the “power,” so why not “abuse” it like every other “dem” in the limelight.
