What happened to the good old days of hearing the fans yell at the people? According to The Inquirer(via NY Daily News), "(Flyer's owner)Snider has donated $25,000 to the Republican presidential campaign of John McCain and the Republican National Committee," that might be the reason for the blaring music during the presentation.
From FOX News:
A carpet was laid down and Palin, dressed in a beige trench, walked on to the ice joined by her daughters Willow and Piper. The GOP Vice-Presidential nominee said at an earlier fundraiser that she would stop some of the booing from the rowdy Philadelphia fans by putting her seven year old daughter, Piper in a Flyers jersey. She said, “How dare they boo Piper!”
When checking out The Blueshirts Blog at the NY Daily News, I agreed with Hooplife7's comment:
She drops the puck - then the Rangers score 4 goals in the first period. When was the last time the Rangers scored 4 goals in the first period? I say let her drop the puck every game if the Rangers score 4 goals a game!Maybe we can get her to hand Brett Favre the football at the Jets game.
