Chicago Blackhawks invited to Pride Parade

The Chicago Gay Hockey Association has invited the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks to participate in the Chicago Pride Parade with them Sunday, June 27. It sure would help smooth over the Blackhawks' image in the gay community after a "Pronger is gay" message was found in their post-game locker room.

"We're optimistic, but we know the realistic chances of, say, Patrick Sharp or Jonathan Toews joining us for the Pride Parade are slim. But who knows," [CGHA President Andrew] Sobotka said. "The CGHA really wanted to let the Blackhawks know who we are, and what our mission is. There are gay hockey players and fans, and we wanted to make sure they know that."
