The Chicago Tribune Put an Opposing Hockey Player a Skirt, That Fairy!

THE SHOT — “Looks like Tarzan, skates like Jane” is how the Chicago Tribune yesterday described the Philadelphia Flyers’ Chris Pronger, which the paper — obviously defending the honor of its home team, the Chicago Blackhawks — dubbed “Chrissy.” See how he’s wearing a skirt? That makes him a sissy poofter, the ultimate of insults! The newspaper is headed by managing editor Jane Hirt. A woman. [via]

    That’s pretty messed up – even for that paper!

    Headline reads “Chicago Tribune Put an Opposing Hockey Player a Skirt”

    Please explain or fix.

    Go Blackhawks!
    And yeah, the Trib is lame….

    Chris Pronger is no woman–he bent the Edmonton Oilers over and fucked them good and proper all those years ago, the prick. We still hate you, Chris! Never come back!!!

    (I know that wasn’t the point of the article, but my passion for momentarily hockey overtook my sense of gender equality for just a second.)

    I don’t think I’d have trouble finding the man in this “Jane.”
