This is what happens if you crash the crease when Teresa’s in goal:

Hockey is a rough sport; just ask Senator John Kerry, D-Mass.

The senator was attending a ceremony for his hometown hockey team, the Boston Bruins, at the White House today when he publicly debuted the remnants of his own hockey injury.

Kerry appeared to have two black eyes and a swollen nose. His senate office said the black and blue was caused by a nose injury during a hockey game the senator participated in recently.

“He’s totally fine,” Kerry spokeswoman Whitney Smith told ABC News, “Very ironically he busted his nose recently playing ice hockey, so the Bruins can certainly relate.”

The good news is that Kerry now thinks he’s a lock for another Purple Heart.

Update: ZIP has a better photo. Thurston looks like he’s been on a three-day caviar & Chataeu Lafite bender.

    Kerry is just showing yet again how full of hockey he is.

  2. ScottyB on January 23rd, 2012 6:45 pm

    But the Bruins WON the Big One (Stanley Cup Champs). Kerry? He lost the other Big One in '04.

    Tim Thomas, Bruin's goalie, was a no show for political reasons. Tim Thomas for president.

    He can't exactly say he fell down the hand-crafted all teak ladder and smashed his face on the exotic [endangered] hardwood railing of their bar aboard the good ship Let Them Eat Cake can he?

    test, test test

  6. backwoodsconsr on January 23rd, 2012 7:53 pm

    Pass! And I see you've got your first point.

  7. SignPainterGuy on January 23rd, 2012 7:54 pm

    Ping, ping, ping !

  8. Misscheryl on January 23rd, 2012 7:54 pm

    What's a point? How does one get points?

  9. SignPainterGuy on January 23rd, 2012 7:57 pm

    Ol` Rice Ass, who served in Vietnam btw, needed some bruisin` and scarring in the visible regions; he must be feelin` out of the loop – not getting the spotlight recently ! Whatever works, eh, Mr Heinz ?

  10. Granny55 on January 23rd, 2012 8:01 pm

    I don't believe that cockamammy story one bit! I think the old bastard got into it with Theresa during cocktail hour and she let him know who the boss is.

  11. backwoodsconsr on January 23rd, 2012 8:03 pm

    The IntenseDebate system gives points to commenters. That's the 2p you see by your name. The criteria for gaining or losing points is unknown to any of us here. Number of comments is a factor, with points awarded for every comment to begin with, and coming less often as the number of comments goes higher.

  12. SignPainterGuy on January 23rd, 2012 8:03 pm

    One gets points by workin` those jabber fingers. They appear next to your name, now in the grey oval; will turn yellow after 25 or so ! The more points you accumulate, the more comments required to advance your "rating number" each time. Not even Doug knows the exact criteria for the awarding of points !

  13. backwoodsconsr on January 23rd, 2012 8:05 pm

    She may have been trying to improve his looks, but that's a lost cause.

  14. Marshall_Will on January 23rd, 2012 8:07 pm

    Doug's "Intense Debate" system rates posters on how frequently they post, length of post and a whole bunch of other proprietary parameters not even HE understands!

    Consider The Powers That Be the "after party" to Michelle's Place. Good to see you here!

  15. Marshall_Will on January 23rd, 2012 8:10 pm

    Winter Soldier..?

    Who… will be… The Last Mahn to… ( take a high sticking call ) to the snotbox?

  16. backwoodsconsr on January 23rd, 2012 8:10 pm

    I still wish you'd register with IntenseDebate. I'd love to watch your numbers climb.

  17. Misscheryl on January 23rd, 2012 8:15 pm

    Very cool place – glad to see some of the Malkinites here too. YAY!!!!

  18. Misscheryl on January 23rd, 2012 8:21 pm

    Hockey Schmockey. So humble is he. Actually, It's a injury he incurred while charging into a burning building attempting to save the entire 27th floor. Whaddaguy!

  19. backwoodsconsr on January 23rd, 2012 8:22 pm

    Yes it is. I've been hanging out here more than anywhere else lately. We have a lot of fun here. Glad you decided to join us.

  20. Misscheryl on January 23rd, 2012 8:26 pm

    MW – how come you aren't doing the "Intense Debate" thing and how do you post without it?

  21. backwoodsconsr on January 23rd, 2012 8:31 pm

    That would be "John Flaming Kerry reporting for duty."

  22. SignPainterGuy on January 23rd, 2012 8:32 pm

    Backwoods better watch out, your rating is rising like a rocket !

    You seem to have Long Face`s number ! ;-)

    I call this place ….. Home !

  23. SignPainterGuy on January 23rd, 2012 8:36 pm

    So THAT`S what the "F" is for ! So many other options have been bandied about ! ;-)

  24. Marshall_Will on January 23rd, 2012 8:44 pm

    Is it because I don't have a website to 'link' to when I log in? We've asked Doug and he's… a writer/news junkie, not an IT guy.

    Could it be possible I just flat suck?

  25. backwoodsconsr on January 23rd, 2012 8:46 pm

    Really. She has the Jabber Fingers going. She may join you on the high side of 100 before I do.

  26. Misscheryl on January 23rd, 2012 8:48 pm

    Well, I didn't want to say anything, but I don't have a website link either.. :)

  27. Marshall_Will on January 23rd, 2012 8:50 pm

    Jawn went wind surfing during the '04 pResidential campaign up here in The Gorge ( Columbia River in Oregon ) I heard the camera crews got bored waiting for him to get it up long enough to get something useable?

    Same thing Teresa said huh?

  28. backwoodsconsr on January 23rd, 2012 8:50 pm

    I don't link to a personal website either. I do have one, but as it uses my real name I don't feel safe linking to it from political blogs.

    As for the last part of what you said, I enjoy reading your comments too much to believe that about you.

  29. SignPainterGuy on January 23rd, 2012 8:59 pm

    Ha haaa ! They just don`t pay some camera-folk enough !

    I watched a guy get really disgusted at a lake near here once trying to get the sail up and going. A kite surfer the same day nearly flew into the trees. Must be a trick !

  30. SignPainterGuy on January 23rd, 2012 9:01 pm

    You jumped one today ! I`m `bout to work up blisters; surely I`ll hit 105 any week now !

  31. SignPainterGuy on January 23rd, 2012 9:07 pm

    Winter soldier ! With all the padding !

  32. SignPainterGuy on January 23rd, 2012 9:13 pm

    All it takes is setting up an Intense Debate acct. I have no w/s and it works for me. I also have a "commenter`s" acct. with WordPress so I can comment at a few blogs like Potluck.

    Having the ID acct. allows you to have your comments recorded for posterity and snooping and all kinds of good stuff ! ;-)

  33. backwoodsconsr on January 23rd, 2012 9:14 pm

    I used to gain points all day. Now it takes all day to gain a point.

  34. Marshall_Will on January 23rd, 2012 9:23 pm

    Blogging. We're talking 'blogging' here, right?

  35. backwoodsconsr on January 23rd, 2012 9:28 pm

    The double entendres are flying thick and heavy in here today.

  36. backwoodsconsr on January 23rd, 2012 9:29 pm

    And you just reached 105. You're hot!

  37. Marshall_Will on January 23rd, 2012 9:32 pm

    Ooops! Goin' down…

    He was running as a slightly lighter version of O'Drama in '04. So he had to come off as being 'athletic' for the youth vote. Watch them slip back into a comatose state this fall.

  38. SignPainterGuy on January 23rd, 2012 9:52 pm

    Surely that`s a stunt double about to go over that big waterfall !?

    Speaking of young people; they appear to have left Obama and hooked their dreams to the Paul star !

  39. backwoodsconsr on January 23rd, 2012 10:08 pm

    That would explain a lot of the naivete.

  40. SignPainterGuy on January 23rd, 2012 10:20 pm

    Our local talk radio station started a new host today, so he got all kinds of callers. One was a 20 yr old guy, Paulbot, `splained how he likes Paul, we don`t, `cause he hasn`t been set in stone in the old ways like we have. Yeah, I thought "naivete" and much stronger words for the kid !

  41. OK_Loyalist on January 23rd, 2012 10:31 pm

    Hey Neighbor !

  42. Misscheryl on January 23rd, 2012 11:12 pm

    Hey back Neighbor!!!!

  43. Pasadena Phil on January 24th, 2012 1:44 am

    There is something Bidenesque about Kerry standing there bruised and battered for a hockey event. Maybe he should have considered ducking this event. Of course, had he ducked earlier, ducking the event wouldn't have been an issue. Now he looks like a fool who won't answer the obvious question.

    I'm trying to figure out if his black eyes are the result of his broken nose or whether they are two separate injuries. He looks more like someone who got beat up than someone who fell on his face.

  44. Marshall_Will on January 24th, 2012 1:51 am

    SPG,

    A trend we bubble bloggers noted as early as 05/06. With home prices skyrocketing, many of what turned out to be OWS'ers whined and moaned that the American Dream had fallen beyond their reach.

    Like what does a single person with no designs of ever getting married need w/ a house? But whine they did. AND flock to Ron Paul as he commanded the "Let's Audit the Fed!" bandwagon.

    I watched w/ genuine concern over out of control home prices morphed into contempt for Bush, or the nearest Conservative as if this was all of our making? In that regard, the longer RP remains in the race, the better he serves as a foil to exhibit what Obama is NOT.

  45. SignPainterGuy on January 24th, 2012 1:54 am

    Me too – all counts !

  46. SignPainterGuy on January 24th, 2012 1:57 am

    Oh, I fully agree. RP is serving a great purpose with his points. Interior, he mostly makes sense, exterior, he`s totally Out-to-lunch and a great example of how not to govern if you love your country and want it to return to its position of respect in the world !

  47. backwoodsconsr on January 24th, 2012 2:02 am

    When he ran against Bush he fell on his ass. Not that there's much difference between the two.

  48. Hyperfobea on January 24th, 2012 9:05 am

    Ha–ha–hockey? Right toe. Kerry is too much of a wuss to go w/o a full shield face mask. Usually when a *man* is assaulted by a *woman* there has to be a *manly* story to cover up the truth.

  49. Julian Robertson on April 20th, 2012 9:16 am

    Many hedge funds have the ability to deliver non-market correlated returns.

  50. bow ties for men on May 17th, 2012 1:00 am

    I think there is so much difference between the election and hockey. Hockey is the national game of PAKISTAN.

  51. oral b triumph 4000 on July 3rd, 2012 12:08 pm

    Great work here

  52. buy steroids uk on September 6th, 2012 4:43 am

    never would have picked him as a hockey player maybe he even used steroids.

  53. Containment Pads on February 24th, 2014 5:26 pm

    I horror to read that crash the crease
