Skates Like Jane

Skates Like Jane

The Chicago Tribune portrayed Philadelphia Flyers’ star defenseman Chris Pronger in a skirt, called him Chrissy and had a headline of “Looks Like Tarzan, Skates Like Jane”.

Olympian Angela Ruggiero was offended for Pronger and for all women hockey players. “I’d like to see that editor out on skates. I’ll take them one-on-one on the ice any day,” Ruggiero said. “They obviously have never seen women’s hockey and are living in the dark ages. … Obviously it’s offensive. It’s disappointing more than anything.”
