from a Bostonian's perspective.
Thomas needs a save to restore his legacy - Boston.com
It can still end well here for Tim Thomas. Right now, the Facebook-posting, self-imploding goaltender is shoulder to shoulder with Curt Schilling and Manny Ramirez regarding how Boston will remember him. Not just as a player, but as a person, a key player-citizen in what is the unique nation of Boston sports.
Through a trio of Facebook postings issued over the course of 19 days, the 37-year-old Thomas has told the world that he wants to be heard. He feels the need to get his thoughts out there, and we are left to believe he wants to stimulate thought and conversation.
But he doesn’t want the media talking to him about it, and he told a gaggle of reporters, bloggers, and photographers Thursday at the Bruins practice facility in Wilmington that he’ll simply stop talking whenever he is asked about the personal beliefs he is posting for the world to see...
regardless of which side of the fence you're on here, or whether or not you share his political and social views, Thomas definitely seems to have one foot in his mouth and the other up his ass, and i agree with the writer that he shares a lot in common with guys like Schilling and Manny Ramirez.
