You may recall that Tim Thomas opted out of visiting the White House when the Bruins won the Stanley Cup because his political views differed from that of President Obama, and it sort of served as a launching point for the Tim Thomas Is A Different Cat campaign we saw over the remainder of the year.
Well, today is the Los Angeles Kings day to visit the White House, so Dustin Penner dropped this on his Twitter feed:
After careful consideration I’ve decided not to visit the White House today for political reasons LOL JK I’m not an idiot!Free trip? I’m in!
