Bruins goalie Tim Thomas (refused invitation to the White House) greeted by Obama masks - Hilarious! [View all]





Bruins goalie Tim Thomas passed on meeting with Barack Obama last year. He couldn't miss the president's face last night.

Thomas protested when his Stanley Cup winning teammates went to the White House saying the Federal goverment had threatened the rights and liberties of its citizens.



So Cap fans reminded him of his "free citizen" rights by peppering the Verizon Center with posters and masks with the president's face on them.

"What did Wayne Gretzky say? You miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take. This was too much of an opportunity to pass up," Mike Holden of Rockville, Md., told Stephen Whyno of the Washington Post. "We had Timmy coming to town, and he wants this issue to go away, and we figured we'd put it right in his face."
