Every year the defending champions of the Stanley Cup are honored at the White House. The team takes the trip, meets the President and the President makes a speech. The team stands behind and along side the President. It is a happy and proud moment.
After reading an article about the Pittsburgh Penguins memorable meeting yesterday, I have decided not to reprint the article here. Why? Some jackasses have turned it into a political debate. When are people going to realize that IS NOT THE PURPOSE OF THE MEETING!!
Congrats to the Penguins. They deserve the accolades and all the respect they receive. Any true hockey fan knows that winning the Stanley Cup is not an easy task.
Any “hockey fan” who turns the meeting between the President and the Stanley Cup winning team into anything other than what it is …AN HONOR.….is a waste of human intelligence.
THIS TRADITION HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR YEARS…..DO NOT TAINT IT!!
(I’ll take some deep breaths now, thank you)
