Flyers fans boo Sarah Palin

Looks like Obama might win Pennsylvania. Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin dropped the puck at the Flyers home opener and got just the reaction everyone would expect from Flyers fans: boos! Yeah, there was a mix of cheering and booing, but from what I could hear, the crowd reacted much more negatively then positively. The Flyers arena was pumped full of music as she was being introduced, likely because they knew what kind of reaction she would get, and that helped to drown out the crowd's reaction.

Here's a video of the whole ceremony:

I still don't understand why the Flyers would put themselves in this situation for their home opener. Talk about a negative way to start a season.
