Will the Stanley Cup champions march in gay pride parade?

"After finishing off the Philadelphia Flyers, the Chicago Blackhawks have taken the Stanley Cup to bars, restaurants, clubs, a children's hospital and Wrigley Field. Andrew Sobotka is hoping the team and the trophy will make another appearance on June 27, at the annual Chicago Gay Pride Parade," writes Greg Wyshynski. "Sobotka is the president of the Chicago Gay Hockey Association.
