"Chrissy Pronger"? Really, Chicago?

"Chrissy Pronger"? Really, Chicago?


Now we know why the Blackhawks haven't won the Cup since 1961. Here's some instant bad karma:

It's a shame the Trib couldn't have released this before Game 5. It would have been fun to see Michael Jordan waive one of these posters from the luxury suite he was in, and count the number of NBC shots of Vince Vaughn and Jeremy Piven plastering one of these against the glass every time Pronger entered the zone.

No word if the Philadelphia Daily News or Inquirer are currently printing up "Patricia Kane" or "Dorothy Byfuglien" to be handed out before Game 6 at Wachovia Center.

Pronger was asked about the poster during media availability on Tuesday. His response? "I don't read what you guys write. Good or bad."

Unlike low-rent cities like Chicago or New York, we actually don't run pictures of opposing players in skirts or diapers. We believe our teams can speak for themselves, in the ice or on the diamond. I would ask what kind of bozo publishes the Chicago Tribune, anyway...but then I remembered!
