It’s Becoming A Federal Case

from the National Journal,

The league agrees with Team Palin. NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly issued this statement: “We do not view the Flyers’ invitation to Governor Palin to be politically motivated. Governor Palin is a supporter of the sport, which she has proclaimed publicly. As a public figure who has a very public connection with hockey, her recent associations with the Flyers and other NHL franchises is not surprising and, in our view, not inappropriate. Participation of national politicians in team ceremonies in professional sports is far from unprecedented in our sport and occurs routinely in other sports, as well.”
