-I just watched this on the hockey package, and yep, she got booed, even though the local affliliate actually didn't televise her introduction, merely coming back from commercial as the chorus of boos blended in with loud, generic crowd noise.
My guess is the official party line will be "The fans in St Louis liked her fine, but were just expressing their loves for the Bluuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuues!"
After Palin dropped the puck at the St. Louis opener, Philadelphia finally won it's first game, beating the New Jersey Devils 6-3.
As though that wasn't bad enough, Manny Legace, the Blues starting goalie, slipped on the carpet laid out for Palin and her family, and appeared to reinjure his knee. After giving up two goals in the first period, Legace was replaced by rookie Ben Bishop, who has given up two more goals on 16 shots in his NHL debut.
With less than three minutes left in the third period, the Blues are now losing 4-0.
We've all seen what Sarah Palin has done to John McCain's presidential campaign, and the Philadelphia Flyers.
It would take comeback akin to, well, what it would take for John McCain to come back, for the Blues to win this game.
Could the curse of Sarah Palin have been passed to the St. Louis Blues?
