Pre-season NHL Game in Philadelphia Ended by Bush Speech
Ira Podell of the Associated Press wrote, "When President Bush started his speech to Congress on Thursday night, the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers were tied 2-2 during the second intermission. His address was shown in the arena, but when it was time to get back to the game, the fans spoke up."
"The start of the third period was delayed and then called off as the 19,117 in attendance demanded to watch the president's speech instead." [photo]
