Tim Thomas refuses to combine politics and hockey except when he’s using his hockey fame as a megaphone for his political views. Since his Random Capitalization rant on Facebook a few months back, he’s instituted a zero-tolerance policy for questions about politics, the President, or the White House– ending interviews as soon as the taboo topics come up.
No distractions. That’s Timmy’s rule. Nothing gets in the way of hockey from here on out. We admire that, but it’s a departure from the previous policy. After some late-night filings, our spies have unearthed photographic evidence of what Thomas did instead of meeting Obama in January. Yep, turns out he’s been rubbing elbows with right-wingers… and we ain’t talking about Nathan Horton.
