Republicans Play The "Hockey Mom" Card

(above) America's most famous Hockey Mom

Senator John McCain astonished the political world on Friday by naming Sarah Palin, a little-known governor of Alaska and self-described “Hockey Mom” as his running mate on the Republican presidential ticket.

If the Clinton's rode the backs of Soccer Moms to the White House, what other differences are there between Hockey Moms and Soccer Moms?

As a republican I am really excited about this woman, she isn't just a pretty face she is everthing I want from a politician. She has an 80% approval rating in the great state of Alaska.

I don't think it was their backs that Clinton was concerned about getting a ride on.

When I listen to politicians I pay attention to the way the communicate to people. If Sarah keeps communicating the way she is, she will go along way in this world.
Hope this keeps having a positive impact on this great sport.

Hockey hasn't seen this much coverage in the mainstream media since the Miracle On Ice.

Miracle on Ice sounds like a great show. Where can I find the tour dates and who is skating for Jesus?

The part of the skating Jesus Christ Superstar will be played by Joe Colborne.
