Philly Applauds Palin

Despite a local radio station calling for fans to boo Sarah Palin, Philadelphia Flyer's fans were more than gracious to the world's most famous hockey mom when she dropped the first puck at the Philadelphia Flyer's home opener.

WIP, a rabble rousing Philadelphia all sports talk station famous for bussing fans up to the NFL draft in New York to boo the selection of Donovan McNabb and sponsors a morning of gluttony and debauchery every year called Wing Bowl, was prodding its listeners to boo Palin when she came onto the ice. A move that would have brought further embarrassment to the city and its infamous fans.

But in this case, the fans had the good sense to ignore the nonsensical blathering of the station's loud mouths and instead showed some manners.

There were some boos, especially at first, but they were drowned out quickly by an appropriate and polite applause.

Here is the video:

I am so happy that Flyers fans showed the class NOT to boo Sarah Palin and her daughters.

I have new respect for them

They have class. I canot say the sam for their sports radio station.

Did you even watch the video? She was booed the whole time. Loudly. You can put lipstick on a pig but it's still a pig.

Wow. Google the news and read all the reports about how loudly they booed and jeered her. So much, in fact, they had to raise the music level so high as to try and drown it. Listen specially to the moment when she drops the puck and starts to leave. At that point nothing could drown the booing anymore.

Nice try at twisting the news. You should send an application to Fox and send what you just wrote. They'd love you there.

LOL. Black is white. Up is down. Bush is a popular president. The economy is strong. Obama is a terrorist.

Rock on.

I was there. There was mostly applause. And if you read all of the accounts the reports are mixed. The truth is just what was written started as boos and turned to applause.

WIP is a joke.

i was there too, it was mostly applause. I think it's funny that the "anonymous" writer up there incorrectly used "lipstick on a pig" - which even Obama wishes would die. He did not intend that to be about Sarah Palin as a "Anonymous" -you aren't even helping your own candidate.
