Sports Stud: Theo Walcott

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

After one of our readers recommended him as a Sports Stud feature a couple weeks ago, this week we have the sexy Theo Walcott in the spotlight. Walcott is a 24-year-old English footballer who plays as a forward for Arsenal and the England national team. His speed and kick have made him ideal in his position as a winger or a striker.

Walcott is really one to watch out for on the field and has been breaking records left, right and center. He topped the Arsenal scoring charts in 2012/13, becoming the sixth player in the Arsène Wenger era to reach 20 goals in a season.

This week, Walcott was spotted in Vegas, cuddling up with his buddies as they relaxed by the pool while celebrating a stag. Definitely some bromancing going on. Well, without further delay, check out the photos below!

Recently Robbie Rogers made history as the first openly-gay athlete to play in a game from a U.S. pro league. The 26-year-old athlete sat down with Charlie Rose, Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell on CBS This Morning to talk about his coming out, joining the LA Galaxy and the state of gay players in professional sports. When asked if he expects things to change regarding the latter, he said.

“Once athletes figure out that or realize that they won’t be treated any differently, and that they’ll be judged on their performance, just like any athlete, then I think they’ll all feel free to be open with people.”

Rogers also discussed the locker room and how that environment might deter other athletes from coming out.

Gayle King: Robbie we had a sportscaster here who said that the locker room culture is very real. That it’s very intimidating for men. Do you agree with that? Do you think there is something that happens in that locker room that makes it very difficult?

Robbie Rogers: Yes, definitely. I would say playing in England it was even more difficult. The locker room there was brutal. I mean, awesome guys. I wouldn’t say they’re homophobic, I’d say that pack mentality is a bit malicious. But here you know, there’s the banter, there’s the jokes, and sometimes you can hear things that get quite malicious and that’s what kind of scars you and builds that fear.

Sports Stud: Fredrik Ljungberg

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

Although he retired from professional soccer/football in August of last year, I decided to highlight the incredibly sexy Fredrik Ljungberg for this week’s Sports Stud. The Swedish 36-year-old played for several different clubs over the course of his career, including the Arsenal and more recently, Japanese club Shimizu S-Pulse. He may recognize him as a model for Calvin Klein underwear, which he did from 2003 until 2007. In addition, he has represented brands such as Nike, Procter & Gamble, L’Oreal and currently represents Puma, ESPN and Pepsi.

With his accomplishments on the field and in his modelling career, over the years he’s received such titles as “Third Best Looking Male Athlete In The World” (Sports Illustrated), “Sexiest Player in the Premier league” (The Sun), and has also been nominated in various Sexiest Man In The World lists. It’s not difficult to understand why when you check out his pictures below. Enjoy!

Jason Collins may have been the first active-playing professional athlete to come out of the closet from a major sports team, but Robbie Rogers is the first openly-gay athlete to play in a game from a U.S. pro league. Collins publicly came out during off-season. Even though soccer isn’t considered one of the four major sports (basketball, baseball, football and hockey), it’s still a huge milestone in LGBT sports history.

At the age of 25, Rogers retired from the sport this past February due to the emotional toll of closeting his sexuality. However, after a few months off and plenty of support from fans and fellow players, Rogers reversed the decision, moving back to the United States from England and signing with the LA Galaxy. Sorry my Pacific Northwest friends, but it looks like I’m switching allegiances from the Seattle Sounders to the Galaxy ;)

This past weekend, he made his debut. He came off the bench during the 77th minute when the Galaxy had a commanding lead over the Sounders. Rogers was met with a thunderous applause as he walked onto the field. He ran by teammate Landon Donovan, who slapped his hand and patted him on the back as he took his position. In his first game as a Galaxy, the 26-year-old midfielder had five touches, one tackle and three completed passes in the game’s final 13 minutes. Check out a few pictures from his historic debut below.

“I’m back here kind of where I’m supposed to be. It’s crazy to me to think I stepped away from this game at 25,” he said. “I’ll sit in my bed tonight and thank God gave me the courage to do this and come back.”

There was a time I used to watch and play tennis religiously. To say I was obsessed with the sport would be an understatement. I would alter my sleeping pattern in order to watch the Australian Open live. Hardcore, right. This summer, I made it a goal to hit the courts more often. So far, so good.

Men’s Journal must’ve sensed my rekindling love for the sport again. The publication showcases the ATP World Tour’s next generation in their latest issue. After checking their tennis editorial out, I definitely need to update my Favorite Male Active Tennis Players list from 2009.

Among the fresh faces highlighted in “Hit Squad” are Belgian player David Goffin (left) and Lithuanian upstart Ricardas Berankis (right). They’re joined in the spread by the Harrison brothers (Ryan and Christian), Grigor Dimitrov, Milos Raonic and Bernard Tomic. I’m sure they all have pretty impressive “backhands” ;) Game, set and match indeed. Check out the photos snapped by photographer Theo Wenner below.

Sports Stud: Thierry Henry

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

For this week’s Sports Stud, I’ve chosen sexy soccer/football player, Thierry Henry. He’s originally from France and plays for as a striker for the New York Red Bulls in the Major League Soccer. In 2012, his salary with the Red Bulls was $5 million ($5.6 million guaranteed) and that made him the highest paid player in the MLS (even more than David Beckham), This year, his base salary went down to $3.75 million, putting him behind Robbie Keane’s $4 million base salary. That being said, with bonuses Henry remains the highest paid player with $4.35 million compared to Keane’s $4.33 million. Cha-ching!

He retired from the international football in 2010 after the 2010 FIFA World Cup. During that time, he had been nominated for FIFA World Player of the Year twice. Back in 2006, Henry was also one of the top commercially marketed footballers; he was ranked ninth in the world at that time.

Aside from his work on the field, the handsome 35-year-old has been an active spokesperson against racism in soccer/football, partially due to his own experiences. Check out his sexy pictures below.

Sports Stud: Barry Zito

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

For this week’s Sports Stud, I’ve chosen to highlight a handsome fellow from Major League Baseball who plays for the San Francisco Giants. The hottie is 35-year old Barry Zito, a pitcher for the team.

Outside of baseball, Zito plays guitar, surfs, and practices yoga. He’s done some acting and an interesting fact is that his uncle is TV actor, Patrick Duffy. Zito also founded the charity ‘Strikeouts For Troops,’ a charity that provides comforts of home and works to lift the spirits and morale of injured US Troops and offers support to military families. Zito is also and LGBT ally, having participated in the San Francisco Giants ‘It Gets Better‘ video.

A scruffy/handsome professional athlete who can sing & play guitar? Yes please! Check out some pictures and videos of Zito below.

Most Adorable NBA Bromance Or…

In: Donovan, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

You’ve undoubtedly heard of Brangelina, TomKat and Bennifer I’m sure. There’s a new pop culture portmanteau taking over the interwebz… Linsons. Meet Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons aka the most adorable bromance in the NBA.

The Houston Rockets teammates have blown up on the internet with their very public displays of affection. From their secret handshake to their longing stares, everything has been documented on tumblr pages and fan fiction sites. Even though they make NBA-sized salaries, Jeremy even stayed on Chandler’s couch because his furniture hadn’t arrived yet. Like he couldn’t afford a hotel.

I don’t like to speculate on people’s sexuality, but there’s something definitely going on besides being BFFs. Jason Collins paved the rainbow way in the NBA. All the cool kids are doing it ;) If they aren’t dating, they really should. They are friggin’ adorable. I wonder how Lin’s previous BFF, former New York Knick teammate, Landry Fields, feels about losing out his buddy to Parsons ;) Check out plenty of incriminating photos below.
