You know a rivalry's really taking off when the media gets involved:
With the Stanley Cup final shifting back to Philadelphia for Wednesday's Game 6, the Chicago Tribune today offered a little gift to Blackhawks fans in the form of Chris Pronger showing some (Photoshopped) leg on its back page with the tagline of "Chrissy Pronger: Looks like Tarzan, skates like Jane," highlighting just how serious a slight this really is.
One can only hope this isn't the start of a trend, as I could do without Byfuglien in a tutu gracing the Philadelphia Inquirer sports section should the Flyers win Wednesday.
Our man in Philadelphia, Eric Duhatschek, said Pronger was asked several times about the photo today but wouldn't talk about it. Pronger said "next question" six or seven times and eventually said simply that he doesn't read the papers.
