For weeks I’ve been looking for a way to work my Flyers — who are in the midst of a battle for the Stanley Cup against the Chicago Blackhawks — onto this blog. So The Chicago Tribune deserves a special thanks for finally giving me an opportunity. The Blackhawks’ hometown newspaper on Tuesday printed the above poster depicting Flyers star defenseman Chris Pronger in a skirt, calling him “Chrissy” Pronger and saying he, “Looks like Tarzan, skates like Jane.” While the poster may have been intended as a joke, some feel it’s flat out sexist – and surprising given that The Tribune has a female editor. I would argue that the poster is also homophobic, but I take comfort in knowing that Pronger is gonna make those effin sissies pay tonight!!!
