Thanks to Brendan Burke, it seems the folks at Westboro Baptist Church now have the sport of hockey in their crosshairs. The "God Hates Fags" clan is infamous for protesting anything or anyone they believe has any connection to homosexuality. Now that the NHL has a general manager with a gay son, they have another target. They most recently showed up in New Hampshire, where they held a dual protest: the state for allowing gay marriage and Dartmouth College for having a hockey team. Dartmouth hosted Northeastern University on the ice on Saturday.
