As reported in the Chicago Sun-Times, Brent Sopel (to the right) and the Stanley Cup (thanks to Blackhawks President John McDonough) will be joining the Chicago Gay Hockey Association in the Chicago Pride Parade this weekend!

Sopel is also marching in honor of Brendan Burke, the team manager for the Miami-Ohio hockey team and the son of Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke who was killed in a car accident two months after coming out publicly on ESPN.com late last year.

Even though, I'm missing AC, being part of this is an acceptable alternative. :)

That's great news, I'm sure you'll have a blast! I think it is fitting that they included a tribute to Brandon Burke as well.

Yeah, i was surprised Brent Sopel mentioned that as well. How fitting.

I had forgotten that Burke and Sopel were together in Vancouver. Clearly while in the press Burke may tend to irk people, he's still valued/respected by the people that work for him to honor such a connection this way.

If only! That would be awesome! Although I think we're still a couple years out, but I'm hoping.
Congrats though!

See! You missed your chance! If you were gay and played hockey you could've met one of the Red Wings when they had the cup! Shame on you for not doing so!

No, I missed my opportunity way back in 1997 when they brought the cup up to my hometown... but I went on vacation when they did. >.

Well this is going to be awkward. Blackhawks traded Sopel to Atlanta today apparently...

It is a little awkward, but he's still going to the parade and will have the Stanley Cup.
