    Hockey Team To Hit Ice In Blagojevich Prison Duds

    Las Vegas Wranglers Hockey Team Will Hit Ice In Blagojevich Prison Uniforms - cbs2chicago.com

    A minor league hockey team in Las Vegas will honor Gov. Rod Blagojevich at a game in January, but the honor will be a backhanded one.

    The Las Vegas Wranglers, the ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Calgary Flames, have announced the team will wear vintage prison uniforms in recognition of Blagojevich for its game on Friday, Jan. 30. The Wranglers will face the Victoria Salmon Kings on "Rod Blagojevich Prison Uniform Night," according to a release from the team.

    The uniforms will feature broad, horizontal black and white stripes and a prison issue number that begins "ILLGOV" with the last two characters representing a specific player's regular uniform number. In keeping with the "locked up" theme, the team also will auction a seat between the two benches to the highest bidder.

    "Over the years we've asked our players to not look so tough for a cause," Wranglers President and COO Billy Johnson said. "Once they had a lot of chirping from opposing players when we've dressed them in pink for cancer research. We owe them a game of looking a little more sketchy. G-Rod helps us with that."

    In addition to the seat between the benches, each player's actual game uniform will be autographed and auctioned off to the public in support of Wranglers charitable efforts, the release said.

    The Wranglers are the same team that gained national attention for Dick Cheney Hunting Vest Night, following the shooting mishap in February of 2006 that involved the Vice President and his 78-year-old friend Harry Whittington. The team often wears specialty uniforms to support themes and causes.
