And Now, The Latest In Chrissy Pronger Photoshopgate News…

There appears to have been a lot of activity on the Chrissy Pronger front since we last visited the nightmare fuel photoshop hilarity yesterday. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights:

  • Let’s start off with the victim herself: try as they might, the media jackals couldn’t get Pronger to bite as he steadfastly refused to address the epic burn, tersely saying on Tuesday:  “I don’t read what you guys write, good or bad. I really couldn’t care, to be honest with you. I’m worried about playing the game.”
  • Next up, the poster has been deemed sexist (no! not that!)  by at least one female hockey player, three-time gold medalist for the U.S. women’s Olympic hockey team, Angela Ruggiero, who told the AP:

“I’d like to see that editor out on skates. I’ll take them one-on-one on the ice any day. They obviously have never seen women’s hockey and are living in the dark ages.

“Some people are still ignorant. Our sport doesn’t get a lot of exposure, so you have to see us play in the world championships or the Olympics to see what the highest caliber of women’s hockey is.

“Obviously, it’s offensive. It’s disappointing more than anything. I grew up playing with boys, trained with NHL players. I would go head-to-head with Pronger any day I could.”

By “head-to-head” does she mean “penis-to-penis”? Now, before one of you yahoos gets all uppity and accuses me of insinuating that all extremely-talented female athletes must have male genitalia, cool your jets – that’s clearly an ignorant statement and even more sexist than the ridiculous (yet amusing) act of depicting Pronger in a skirt. Of course, what I am referring to is that male-on-male genital touching would be an impossibility between the two even if she was a hermaphrodite (which she isn’t). Why? Because we all know Pronger doesn’t have a penis.

Thank you, thank you. I’ll be here all week!

Try the veal.
