New Day,, Old... Cheap Shot on Philly

Another day, another dumb reference to Philly booing Santa Claus:

Whatever happens on Nov. 4, I will always remember Sarah Palin as the bravest of the national candidates. Or the most foolish. Take your pick. For, you see, a couple of weeks ago, when the Philadelphia Flyers opened their NHL season, the courageous hockey mother came onto the ice, her innocent little daughter in tow, to drop the first puck.

Understand now, this is Philadelphia, alleged City of Brotherly Love, where sports fans have been known to boo Santa Claus and children looking for easter eggs.

The author, Frank Deford, is at least old enough to have been alive when it happened. Maybe he can break news on disco next.
