Just Asking for Trouble

The Tribune ran a "very special" poster in today's paper of Flyers enforcer "Chrissy" Pronger wearing a skirt and tights, with the subhead "Looks like Tarzan, skates like Jane." Not surprisingly, it has Flyers fans riled, but doesn't elicit a reaction from Pronger himself. He'll answer on the ice tomorrow night, no doubt.

Classless, tasteless and stupid. Also real nice that no one that made the decision to run this has to meet up with him on the ice. Pronger has acted like an immature ahole throughout the series and it takes something really brainless to make him look like a class act; congrats Tribune!
