Ed Snider Once Kicked Donald Trump Out Of His Suite During A Playoff Game For An Inability To Shut The Fuck Up
Let me be quite clear here, if you are a sports fan and you are still thinking of voting for Donald Trump then you need to reconsider whether or not you're a sports fan. Don't change your political affiliation because if you haven't jumped ship already then you are better off drowning with the Donald, but maybe think about taking up a hobby other than professional athletes because you are ruining it for the rest of us.
We are talking about a man that didn't respect sports enough to check whether or not Joe Paterno was a corpse before speaking in West Bumblefuck, Pennsylvania. A man that thought the mention of Tom Brady would be worthy of a round of applause in fucking MARYLAND. As if that wasn't bad enough, we just found out that very same man doesn't know when to shut the fuck up at sporting events. I can't emphasize this enough, a vote for Donald Trump is a vote for every single person that has ever asked you a question about the rules before the whistle. It's a vote for every single person that's every tried to mention work, school, life, or - god forbid - politics during sudden death overtime. This is actually a bigger red flag for me than the fact that Trump is a complete bigot, because I can sit next to a bigot at a hockey game as long as he's quiet. I can't stress this enough, voting for Donald Trump is the equivalent of voting for your girlfriend to take sole ownership of your second season ticket. Just think about that the next time you support the "land of the free" building a fucking wall around it's perimeter.
The Flyers and their fans may have no problem disrespecting the honor of their fallen founder by turning his memorial game into a scene from 'Slap Shot', but after that tribute video and this story I am ready to pay a visit to his gravesite. I may not have known Ed Snider from the war vet sitting at the end of the bar before two weeks ago, but that man deserves every ounce of my appreciation. Not just for helping to build the game of hockey, but for realizing that loud mouthes like Donald Trump are too goddamn boisterous to let us enjoy it in (relative) peace.
