Note: This post appeared in 2010, weeks after the Blackhawks allegedly ignored sexual assault allegations by Kyle Beach and while the club was allegedly harassing beach with anti-gay slurs.

The Chicago Tribune thinks Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger is a 5-foot-2 female figure skater. Now we find out the Chicago Blackhawks think Pronger is gay. They wrote as much on a whiteboard in their locker room, and that has come through in at least one photo of their Stanley Cup championship celebration. Chances are slim they meant it as a compliment of his grooming or his good taste in clothes.

I’ve always thought you were supposed to be classy in victory. I guess that message hasn’t reached the Blackhawks yet.
