The Boston Bruins visited the White House today and were honored for their 2011 Championship season. The players met President Barack Obama and gave the Commander in Chief a Bruins jersey. The President complimented the B’s on their efforts in winning the franchise’s sixth Stanley Cup and also on their organization’s charitable work.
Tim Thomas decided not to attend the event – a move which has been attributed to his political beliefs (Thomas is a staunch conservative) but has yet to be confirmed.
Obama called Brad Marchand a “little ball of hate” and light-heartedly mocked the successful in sports city of Boston: “Enough, already!”
