Pro Jocks Hip Check Peewees To Score Flu Shots

What would have happened if the Calgary Flames, the Edmonton Oilers, the Maple Leafs, the Vancouver Canucks, the Ottawa Senators, and the Montreal Canadiens had lined up with the moms and kids at their local H1N1 vaccination clinics?

Imagine that, instead of jumping to the front of the queue for scarce flu shots, Kaberle, Raycroft, and Kovalev had gone down there, said hello, signed some autographs, chatted with the fans, given some atoms and peewees a chance to get close to their heroes.

A public relations coup instead of reinforcing the image of professional athletes living in a bubble of entitlement and privilege.

Any good reasons not to have done that?
