Philly Is A Pronger Kind Of Town

[Posted by Jake]

Chris Pronger, the stellar Flyers defenseman, will probably never have to buy a drink in this town again. They say Philadelphia is a tough place for professional athletes, but a fierce competitor with a winning attitude can be a favorite son forever.

Case in point, the Chicago Tribune makes a poster of Pronger in a dress, highlighting his miscues in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals. But he's been a beast, logging 30 minutes or more of ice time practically every game, and been a calm provocateur off the ice, bearing the brunt of the Blackhawk's wrath with good humor.

Anyway, Pronger's reaction to the dress poster? A mock injury report stating that he was "day-to-day with hurt feelings". Don't you love it? My prediction is a huge Game 6 for Pronger and the Flyers.

Let's Go Flyers!
