As the 2012 Stanley Cup Champions, the L.A. Kings made their visit to the White House today along with the MLS Champs, the L.A. Galaxy.  President Obama was naturally a little bitter about the Kings 5-4 victory over his hometown Chicago Blackhawks last night, but he congratulated the Kings regardless on their incredible Cup run, and posed for photographs with his personalized # 44 jersey. The real entertainment, however, came from none other than Dustin Penner’s twitter account. Penner decided to take a little jab at former Boston Bruins goaltender, Tim Thomas, who decided to skip out on his team’s visit to the White House last year because he is just a jerk like that was “exercising his right as a free citizen.” Here’s what Penner had to say about the situation: Image via L.A.

  • Personally, I thought Tim Thomas was impressive in his unwillingness to meet with a President whose agenda he feels is hurting his country. Perhaps Penner should mind his own (Canadian) business and concentrate on how to score goals and get his ass off the bench! At least Tim Thomas earned his money! (with all deference to Penner's excellent playoff showing). Just shut up and get your game on, dude. You are LUCKY to be on the White House trip to begin with.
