In a previous post, my gay hockey team was hoping someone from Chicago Blackhawks organization would show up for the Pride Parade. We weren't too hopeful.

But that little story in the Windy City Times (local LGBT newspaper) caught on a few eyes at the Huffington Post, Out SportsChicago SunTimes, and the Pucky Daddy Blog on Yahoo Sports. 
 
Most of the comments on those stories were positive. As for the negatives?
  • My team was trying to get free publicity by jumping on the Blackhawks bandwagon
  • Forcing the Blackhawks into an uncomfortable public situation
  • Didn't like gays, in general, and how did it related to hockey or the Stanley Cup.
So the current rumor is that we should have 1 or 2 (maybe more) Blackhawk players with us in the parade. Maybe the organization got a little pressure (or felt more relieved) once they found that the Chicago Cubs will also have a float in this year's pride parade. 

We still don't know if The Stanley Cup is going to make it. Oh well... still hoping...
