    Default Homos Get Stanley Cup For Their Parade

    I just had to lol when I read this..
    I am not even going to say anything at all, I will just laugh and people can form their own opinions.
    I don't really have a problem with it..but it just seems, well..odd.

    CHICAGO - The Stanley Cup, which has been on more adventures than perhaps any other piece of championship hardware, will make its first appearance in a gay-themed event this weekend.

    The Chicago Gay Hockey Association invited the Blackhawks to join Sunday's Gay Pride Parade after the team won its first Stanley Cup title since 1961 -- and the team said yes. So did the Chicago Cubs, who will have their own float in the parade for the first time.

    According to the Hockey Hall of Fame's Phil Pritchard, it will mark the first time the NHL's championship trophy has been on display at a gay-themed event.

    "We are thrilled that it worked out as it's important for the city and important for the franchise," Blackhawks spokesman Adam Rogowin said.

    Defenceman Brent Sopel and his wife, Kelly, will accompany the Cup on a float in the parade. Sopel, who was traded this week to Atlanta, is a 33-year-old father of three who said he volunteered to honour the late son of Toronto general manager Brian Burke, his former boss in Vancouver.

    Brendan Burke, 21, was killed in an auto accident in February, just three months after publicly disclosing his homosexuality.

    "Anybody who has had to bury a child has suffered a heartbreak and this was the first thing that came to mind," Sopel said. "Everything that happened last year with Brendan coming out last year and dying three months later, it was a tragedy."

    Sopel said he's not really trying to make a statement.

    "But everybody is a person and we all have feelings," he said.

    As for the Cubs, Hall of Famer Ernie Banks will ride in a vehicle decorated with a brick-and-ivy motif reminiscent of Wrigley Field's outfield wall. The ballpark is only a few blocks from the parade route, and the Cubs have supported various gay community causes over the past several years.

    "We know we have many fans in the community," said Mike Lufrano, the team's vice-president of community affairs.

    I don't mind. I recognize that I'm not a true fan.

    I only go when my wife takes clients to the skybox, so I don't have to sit with the plebians.

    Skybox...you know...where rednecks go have lulz with their buddies instead of TRULY ENJOYING THE GAME.

    I'm surprised at your lulz over homos, though.

    You and Matt Mitrione should be the poster children for the progressive concept of emo faggots in violent sports.

    You've come a long way, baby.

    If your daughter isn't wearing her hijab, you can see it and slap her.

    I've never heard it called 'riding the float' before.

    Saucy.

The sickness I was talking about was your propensity to kind of reach in and grasp on to something to define someone here. You harangue them about it and manipulate it in to conversations. You do that with every single poster here. You do this until they see things your way. The "correct way". It's vile.

    Perhaps it's a necessary part of a disenfranchised group gaining acceptance in society to prominently declare that one is a part of the stigmatized group ("Hey, I'm gay and I can pull a hat trick"), but don't things like "Gay Hockey Assoc" or "Gay Firefighters Assoc" or "Gay Sausage Vendors Assoc" ghettoize gay people by making it more about the gay than about the activity itself?
