Burish should apologize

Greg Whelpley, Lethbridge, Alta.

Dear Adam Burish, your comments after winning the Cup about Chris Pronger and how you would like to punch him are ridiculous and reprehensible.

Sir, you have a right to your opinion, but people with class will take the high road and keep it to themselves.

Did it ever occur to you that thousands of young impressionable minds were watching this final and then they heard your stupid comments?

What message does this send to these young fans.

I would expect more from a so-called professional.

You showed no class and should be ashamed of yourself. An apology is in order, not just for Mr. Pronger, but to the rest of the hockey world.
