Former pro-athletes get patriotic 

12:34 PM, Jul 4, 2011 9NEWS COLORADO
updated 06:15 AM, Jul 5, 2011 

DENVER - Professional athletes showed their patriotism Monday morning in an attention-getting way.

Former sports athletes were out bright and early to celebrate America's Independence Day by waving flags at the Union Avenue bridge over Interstate 25. They caught the attention of drivers passing by with their patriotic display.

Former Nuggets player and now sports radio commentator Scott Hastings showed up along with MLB Hall of Famer Bob McCaslin and others.

This group of people - called the Flag Guys - gathers every major American holiday. The group was started by Denver resident Chris Tucker. Tucker works with the Professional Arena Soccer League. He gathers fellow athletes to show off their stars and stripes.

The written article above was changed deleting the following two sentences (in parenthesis) which appeared on the 9NEWS web site, as we are not the Pro Players Foundation and we were not promoting anything. The article originally read ("They were promoting the Pro Players Foundation. The non-profit organization is a group of professional athletes and community members that supports children.") We were just gathered to show our patriotism, nothing else. This inaccurate information was fabricated to bolster the news article by a 9NEWS staff writer. It was deleted from the article on Tuesday morning, but could not be edited from the video. The following text still appears in the video shown below. 
(These guys are from the Pro Players Foundation. The non-profit organization is a group of professional athletes and community members that support children. )
