Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, who refused to go to the White House when the Stanley Cup champions were honored there Monday, explained his reasoning on his Facebook page.

In what he says will be his only comment on the matter, Thomas wrote:

I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People. This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government. Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL. This is the only public statement I will be making on this topic. TT

Here’s a thought: At the next Republican debate, let Thomas moderate. He’s a goalie, so nothing should get by him.
