Hockey mom ends hockey player's betcha!

It's funny, I thought that Sarah Palin had only ended John McCain's chances of winning the presidency. It turns out she may also have ended (or at least temporarily derailed) the career of an NHL player.

As part of her tour to prove her hockey mom bonafides, Palin dropped the ceremonial first puck at the game between the Los Angeles Kings and St. Louis Blues. But, someone on the Scottrade Center's staff didn't properly clear the carpet Palin walked across the ice on, and well...:

The carpet slip ended up costing Blues goalie Manny Legace five games with a strained hip flexor, and he never recovered. For the season, he's been 13-9 with a 3.18 goals against average (almost a goal per game more than his career average) and a .885 save percentage (also below his established norm). Yesterday, the Blues decided they'd had enough, and released the former All-Star goalie.

So, yet another hockey game fiasco at the hands of momma bear. Here's what happened in another game she went to (notice how loud the music has to get to drown out the booing).

And here's another Palin video for no reason whatsoever.
