    and a lot of it may be a cultural thing -- even in Burke's day, much of it came from the Latino players, many of whom were (and still are) raised in conservative Catholic households.

    The NHL seems to be making giant inroads -- witness the participation of Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke in last year's Toronto Pride Parade (a tribute to his late son, Brendan, who was killed in a car crash; Burke had promised him the two would march together), and the Chicago Blackhawks sending the Stanley Cup for participation in Chicago Pride (nice gesture, though I still am pissed that they swept the San Jose Sharks in the playoffs).
