Amazing Trolling Job, Caps Fans

Tim ThomasMan, is there a better way to respond to that Tim Thomas White House kerfuffle than holding a giant Obama head behind the net? Nope. There is not.

Thomas was back in D.C. on Monday night, a few months after his now-infamous Facebook post, in which he said that he believed the federal government had “grown out of control.” He continued: “Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House.” By now you probably know the rest. Thomas didn’t accompany the Bruins to the White House, and missed out on this delightful photo op:

President Obama

Fast-forward to Game 3 on Monday night, when Thomas was met with giant Obama signs at the Verizon Center. Look, I don’t really want to be all political here, so whatever. You do you, Tim Thomas. And I guess it didn’t work, since the Caps lost. But I think we can still all get behind some clever signage, right? Bravo, Caps fans! We really enjoyed your posters! (This is my favorite.) And we look forward to seeing the dialogue in our nation’s capital return to more important topics, like Mitt Romney’s dog and whether Hilary Rosen said something offensive about ladies.
