4. It'll be interesting to see if not showing up at the White House affects his wallet

I'm thinking there may be people who will not buy his jersey, any merchandise, show up for his personal appearances, etcetera.

If I was a Bruins fan, I'd be on the phone to their front office at opening of business tomorrow, IMHO.

5. Whatever.

 

I would be surprised if Thomas even knows what he's mad about. Teabaggers are not terribly bright people.

7. Trying to be objective about this

If a player had bailed on a Bush event, I'd be cheering him, so I can't get too upset with this.

Although now I know Thomas is a Glenn Beck-loving bagger, I can openly hate him (more) on the ice.

9. Thomas is a 'bagger?!

Honestly didn't see that coming.

Go Sharks.
