Tie Domi causes stir after tweeting photo of son Max wearing Trump socks

Yesterday at 3:41 PM

trump-socksPhoto tweeted out by Tie Domi through his official Twitter account. It is apparently Max Domi’s game-day socks.

Only during the most divisive election in memory would a pair of vanity socks cause such an uproar.

Former Toronto Maple Leafs enforcer Tie Domi tweeted a photo Wednesday of his NHLer son, Max, showing off star-spangled Donald Trump socks with the caption, “Game day socks. Make America Great again.”

“My son @max_domi wore these socks yesterday and he is [Canadian]. @realDonaldTrump won & so did @ArizonaCoyotes,” the 47-year-old hockey vet typed alongside the image.

It didn’t take long for the backlash on Twitter to begin, with fans expressing their anger at what they interpreted as Domi family support for controversial president-elect Donald Trump.

“The Domi family lost a lot of respect with this,” tweeted Nick Richard.

“I’ve been a fan of yours since I was old enough to understand hockey. This makes me sick,” added Emiley MacKinnon.

Domi’s daughter, Avery, was quick to come to the defence of Tie and Max.

“My bro & dad don’t know anything about politics nor do they care cuz we are Canadian,” Avery tweeted. “None of us voted. Take a joke ppl, they’re just socks!”

My son @max_domi wore these socks yesterday and he is 🇨🇦 @realDonaldTrump won 🇺🇸 & so did @ArizonaCoyotes 😀🙏

Video: Islanders-Penguins And The Best Hockey Fights Ever

By David Matthews

Last Friday, the New York Islanders and Pittsburgh Penguins played knowing full-well that things were likely to turn dicey. What resulted was hockey mayhem.

Two weeks ago, during a different Islanders-Penguins game, Islander goalie Rick DiPietro was knocked out by Penguins goalie Brent Johnson. DiPietro suffered injuries as a result and is missing over a month of play. When the teams played again, the hockey code of honor called for retribution on the Islanders’s part. They delivered.

A Strange Dream Not Involving Waffles, but Pat Quinn?


In the absence of any game analysis or waffle throwing evaluations, I thought I would simply share an odd dream I recently had….

I awoke last night in a cold sweat with cloudy thoughts of a Jeremy Roenick game winner, Dominik Hasek and Arturs Irbe standing on their heads and an unusual amount of players screaming at NHL referees. Ok, so I had a strange dream, our old GM Pat Quinn had actually taken over Brian Burke’s mind and body and was in actuality our current GM in the form of Burkie. Now that I have lost most of you, to the remaining readers let me at least explain further.

Detroit Red Wings forward Kris Draper will make his season debut either Friday at Anaheim or Saturday in Los Angeles, coach Mike Babcock said.
The Wings begin a three-game road trip tonight in San Jose (10:30 p.m., FSN).
“I’m ready when I get the call,” said Draper, who had hernia surgery last month.

Brian Burke celebrated his second anniversary as general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs Monday.
