‘Liking’ Tim Thomas on Facebook
Whoops. It's all fun and games when the former Bruins goalie is winning you a Stanley Cup, but when he's defecting from the team and posting highly-politicized messages on Facebook, it may be to time to take back the man-crush.
The problem with Thomas is not that he supports the Chick-fil-A company's stance against gay marriage, but that he feels the need to tell everyone about it. It's impossible to get a consensus among a group of people on these sensitive social issues, which is why we like our sports figures to keep their political beliefs to themselves. And we like them to keep playing sports.
Thomas has quit hockey, for now, ushering in the Tuukka Rask era.
