    More and more good people should follow suit!!!

    There comes a time in ones life to "stand" on principle!

    Tim Thomas stood his ground! Good for him!!

    I am a very big Hockey fan but not of the Bruins. My hats off for this goalie and his decision to stand up for what he believes. Too many would have set aside their political views and jumped at the photo op. We need more like this guy.

    It's to bad that some more team mates didn't join him. Kudo to him for standing up for his beliefs.

    Don, I was surprised that he is only one of two American citizens on the team. I applaud his stance and conviction.

    He's probably the only American on the team. I've been a hockey fan (NHL season ticket holder) for years and it always cracks me up when we stand for the anthem before the game starts and I look at the line-up on ice and don't see one single American out there on either team. But, team loyalties aside, I am now a big fan of this goalie -
