Gov. Palin to Appear at Flyers Opening Game

Gov. Sarah Palin will visit the Wachovia Arena this Saturday to drop the first puck on the new season as it finally arrives with much anticipation to me and any other blogger/journalist.
“Because of the tremendous amount of publicity she has brought to our sport, we invited the most popular hockey mom in North America to our home opener to help us get our season started,” said Comcast-Spectacor Chairman Ed Snider who founded the Flyers in 1967. “We are very excited she has accepted our offer and we are very proud of the publicity she is generating for hockey moms and the sport of hockey.”
Even though it is for the Penguins much-hated rival, I still like the new story. Any news that helps announce the beginning of the hockey season will be a good thing.
