Michael Felger has a few words for Tim Thomas over the Bruins' goalie's refusal to attend a White House ceremony honoring the Bruins for their Stanley Cup championship.
And those words aren't, "Way to go, big guy."
"I think it's an embarrassment. I think Tim Thomas looks like a small-minded chump," Felger said on 'Uno's Sports Tonight' Monday, and that was just the beginning:
"This is part of what's wrong with the country, is that everyone turns it into a political thing and it's not a political thing. It's about the office, it's about the event, it's about respecting your country.
"Let me ask you this, Tim Thomas: Have your property rights been infringed upon? Do you really have it this bad in this country? You make 5 million a year playing a game, with complete freedom. Do you really have it that bad?
"And this is not a left or a right thing. Look, I hate it when Bruce Springsteen goes off on the president. I'm a Pearl Jam fan. Eddie Vetter has this habit, in the middle of Pearl Jam concerts, to go railing on George Bush. I hate that, too.
"You guys got it pretty good. Quit politicizing everything when no one's asking for your political opinion.
"I think Tim Thomas looks like a total chump today. Just like Mark Chmura looked like a chump with the Packers when he wouldn't go see Clinton and on and on. Not everything has to be political."
