H.M.A.S.P. -- Hockey Moms Against Sarah Palin

10/12/2008 5:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It probably sounded like a safe bet at the time: Self-pronounced hockey mom Sarah Palin dropping the puck amongst peers at a Philadelphia Flyers game. Her campaign manager should've been more informed about Philly fans.
Sarah Palin
Just for knowin's sake, Philadelphia fans are legendary for being the most brutal in all of sports -- they once booed Santa Claus during an Eagles half-time show. But cut to last night when Sarah skated into the Flyers' stadium to drop the ceremonial puck -- only to be greeted by a split of boos and cheers.

Politics really brings the best out in people.

Hey, smarties, in your rush to bash Palin, you turned the Philadelphia FLYERS into the Fliers.

You probably should have been more informed about what you were trying to write.

As a hockey parent this BITCH is giving the hockey world a black eye. We as parents dont define ourselves by the sport our kids have chosen. We have had our turn at youth and for this woman to define HERSELF by what her child has done is weird. P.S. ALASKA, You know the HUGE land of snow doesnt even have ONE NHL TEAM. Good job GOV.

Sorry, but no matter what your politics are .... Republican or Democrat .... whether you like McCain or Obama ..... you DON"T boo a woman when she has her 6 year old with her and she's there just for a fun event. Shows NO classs whatsoever! If you have to, don't do anything, but are we really this uncivil that we have to boo someone when they have their small child with them? Sheeeesh! (File under: The worst of what Americans can be.)

Hey hockey fans at TMZ. It is FLYERS not Fliers. Make sure you check the facts, like spelling, before you post.

moveover00: She wasn't there for fun, she was campaigning. If she wants to bring her kids into the ring, they better be prepared to get knocked out. This is Philly, do NOT attempt to screw with us or push your agenda. We'll make you pay.

People should be ashamed of their actions. Palin's children were with her...and regardless of what you think it's bad sportmanship. Everyone who boo'ed should be placed center ice individually and boo'ed at.

EXACTLY DrunkenMick, she was campaigning not enjoying a night out with her kid. If there was any concern for her child, she would have left them at home. A Philly stadium is not a place to take lightly. It was a photo op combining hockey and being a mother. Duhhhh, guess this blue collar, Philly fan got the point (and threw up in my mouth a little bit) from her campaigns lame attempt to fool the public.
