Palin to Drop Puck to Start Philadelphia Flyers Season

Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, who calls herself a ``hockey mom,'' will drop the ceremonial opening puck at tonights Philadelphia Flyers season-opener at home against the New York Rangers.

The National Hockey League team said the Alaska governor's appearance at the Wachovia Center is tied to the Flyers' promotion to find the ``Ultimate Hockey Mom.'' During Palin's acceptance speech to be John McCain's running mate last month, she joked that the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull was lipstick.
