Well, for starters, a pitbull wasn't booed off the ice in Philadelphia today.
Watch the video.
This was a very, very bad idea. Even if Philadelphia wasn't hostile territory for Palin (and it is), for a politician to show up on opening day and upstage a ceremony meant to honor the players' actual mothers because she's a "famous hockey mom" was just silly.
Of course the game itself was played at the Wachovia Center, named for the soon to be defunct bank.
Personally, I felt bad for Willow and Piper Palin. A mother should not be hiding behind her children.
