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.
