Filed Under: Edmonton Oilers
NOT Mrs. Pronger
Remember that rumor a couple of months ago that the reason behind all the talk about the Red Sox trading Manny Ramirez was because he cheated on his wife and she wanted them out of Boston? Well, via Deadspin, comes this rumor that Chris Pronger’s wife wants them out of Edmonton because he got a local television reporter named Christie Chorley pregnant.
Well, the reason Pronger’s wife wants to leave Edmonton is not b/c she hates the city or the people. Apparently Pronger got a female beat reporter who covers the oilers pregnant. Christy Chorley is her name, and she told Prongs half way through the season. This is why it would be difficult for the Pronger family to settle down in Edmonton.
If this is true, another athlete, another absentee father. We all know about Shawn Kemp but this is the first we’ve heard about it in the NHL. Well besides the rumor that Bobby Clarke is Ed Snider’s illegitimate son.
