In a surprise move that made waves from St. Charles, MO to Belleville, IL, the St. Louis Blues placed former all-star goalie Manny Legace on waivers yesterday, and it's all Sarah Palin's fault.
The season got off to a rocky start for Legace. On October 24, he slipped on a carpet laid on the Scottrade Center ice for Alaskan anger bear (TM Wonkette) Sarah Palin, who was there to drop the ceremonial first puck. He missed five games with a hip injury and was never able to regain the All-Star form he showed during the Blues' 2007-08 season.
The last straw was the Blues' February 2nd game against the Detroit Red Wings, in which Legace allowed three goals on the first eight shots. He was pulled and had not played since. Since Legace cleared waivers, he will report to the Blues' AHL affiliate in Peoria, IL on Monday. As for Sarah Palin? She became Queen of Real America and lived happily ever after with her 12 children, the end.
