Jason Collins’ Historic NBA Debut

In: Donovan, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

When Jason Collins came out last year in great fanfare on Sports Illustrated, he was a free agent. As fantastic as it was, the public declaration was more a symbolic one since he wasn’t part of a team. That all changed on Sunday when the 35-year-old signed with the Brooklyn Nets.

“The decision to sign Jason was a basketball decision,” Nets GM Billy King said in a statement. “We needed to increase our depth inside, and with his experience and size, we felt he was the right choice for a 10-day contract.”

Last night, Collins made history as the league’s first openly gay athlete when he checked in with 10:28 to go in the second quarter. Given that he contributed to the Nets’ victory over the Los Angeles Lakers, his prospects for a long-term run with the team are bright. Congrats to the Nets franchise for being a part of this historic moment in LGBT history.

Sports Stud: John Daly

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

For this week’s Sports Stud, I decided to keep on with the Winter Olympics theme and choose a sexy skeleton racer from Team USA: John Daly. Born and still living in New York, the 28-year old has been competing since 2001. Before focussing on skeleton racing, Daly used BMX race and also did track & field.

At the 2010 Winter Olympics, Daly finished in 17th overall. In Sochi, after he slipped at the start in his final run (which he was entering in at a close race for a bronze medal) Daly finished in 15th place. “I went for it a little bit too hard,” Daly said. “(The sled) popped out and when that happens, there’s nothing you can do. … From then on, I was just trying to get down safe, to be totally honest. I knew it was over. I had a mile of ice to think about what just happened and now I have four more years to wait.”

Regardless of how that final race turned out, he gets a gold for hotness and for a killer smile. Check out his photos below!

Sports Stud: Patrick Sharp

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

This week’s Sports Stud is currently competing in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games, a bit of a “break” from his regular season in the NHL. Patrick Sharp is a professional Canadian hockey player that plays as alternate captain for the Chicago Blackhawks as well as for Team Canada. As you may recall, the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup last year and Sharp was part of the winning team. In addition, Team Canada won Gold at the 2010 Winter Olympics here in Vancouver… so needless to say the expectations are high for the 32-year old.

Sharp’s position is right forward and his been playing professionally since 2002. He’s originally from Ontario, Canada. In 2009, Victoria Secret named him “Chicago’s Sexiest Athlete.” In 2011, he signed a 5-year contract extension with the Blackhawks valued at $29.5 million over 5 years. The contract has come into effect during the 2012–13 NHL season and has an annual salary cap hit of $5.9 million.

Watch for the this sexy hunk during the games (if you’re watching), otherwise once he resumes in his regular NHL games. Check out his photos below!

The Perez Bros are award-winning directors known for their work on music videos and short narratives. The San Francisco-based duo recently debuted a short film titled The Weigh In. At first glance, one might assume it’s another artistic protest against the Sochi Games. It could very well be, but boxing isn’t an event held during the Winter Olympics. Nonetheless, it’s a fun watch, especially if you have a thing for hunky boxers.

If someone follows Orlando Cruz’s footsteps and comes out, this situation isn’t that far-fetched. With noses pressed up against each while gazing into your opponent’s eyes, I’m surprised it hasn’t already happened ;) Watch Brian Patterson (left) and Taylor Lambert (right) act on their palatable sexual tension in the erotically-charged visual.

“I’m not afraid to tell the world who I am. I’m Michael Sam: I’m a college graduate. I’m African American, and I’m gay. I’m comfortable in my skin.”

Given that the Associated Press selected Sam as their SEC Defensive Player of the Year, it’s almost a given that he’ll be picked by a team during the NFL draft in May. If that happens and no other NFL athlete comes out in the meantime, the defensive lineman from Missouri could make history as the league’s first openly gay athlete.

“I understand how big this is,” he said. “It’s a big deal. No one has done this before. And it’s kind of a nervous process, but I know what I want to be … I want to be a football player in the NFL.”

Michael Sam publicly came out on Sunday during an interview with ESPN’s Outside The Lines. He also revealed that his coaches and teammates at Mizzou have known since August about his sexual orientation.

For the most part, several NFL athletes have publicly praised and commended Michael for his courage. Included in that bunch is Super Bowl MVP, Seattle Seahawks’ Malcolm Smith. The league itself also issued a statement declaring their admiration for the young athlete.

“We admire Michael Sam’s honesty and courage,” NFL senior vice president of communications Greg Aiello said in the statement. “Michael is a football player. Any player with ability and determination can succeed in the NFL. We look forward to welcoming and supporting Michael Sam in 2014.”

Sports Stud: Denny Morrison

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

Given that the 2014 Winter Olympics have begun, I figured it would be suitable to feature one of the athletes. Also, since I’m in Canada, I have chosen sexy speed skater, Denny Morrison. In 2010, the now 28-year-old won a gold medal in the team pursuit along with Lucas Makowsky and Mathieu Giroux.

Morrison recently made headlines due to the fact that one of his many sponsors includes a gay bar in Calgary, showing that he is proud to support LGBT equality. The speed skater is straight and has previously admitted that he wasn’t always so accepting, but has grown up a lot. “I’ve lost friends over them [being] gay in the past,” he told the Vancouver Sun. “I feel bad about that now. I realize how ridiculous that was… It would be interesting to have a conversation with them [now] and half-apologize and half tell them, ‘I really feel differently about you now, because I’ve educated myself on the subject.’” Denny Morrison marched alongside openly gay New Zealand Olympic speed skater, Blake Skjellerup in the 2013 Calgary Pride Parade.

Last week, Conner Mertens made headlines by becoming the first active college football player to come out. Turns out, the Willamette University freshman has a boyfriend and he’s an athlete as well. It’s everyone’s favorite collegiate jock porn storyline ;)

Like Mertens, Chandler Whitney chose to tell his story. The Beaverton, Oregon native told the website about coming out to his teammates. Much to his surprise, the team broke into spontaneous applause upon telling them, “I’m gay.”

“Being where I am in eastern Washington, it’s not the response I expected. I’m in Walla Walla, there’s not a lot of open-mindedness on the surface.” Whitney added, “I didn’t necessarily expect hostility, but I expected a guy or two to feel uncomfortable or awkward. Everyone on the team shook my hand, gave me a hug and said we’re a family and they had my back. The guys I thought would feel the most uncomfortable said don’t worry about a thing, it’s not a big deal.”

Whitney plays for the Walla Walla Community College baseball team, the Warriors. He’s hoping to play for two years there before transferring to a four-year college to earn a degree and play baseball. Check out his recruiting video below, along with another photo.

Contrary to early overnight numbers, Super Bowl XLVIII didn’t dip from last year’s ratings, but rather set an all-time ratings record. The telecast was watched by an average audience of 111.5 million people, more than any television program in U.S. history, surpassing the previous mark of 111.3 million set by Super Bowl XLVI. Three of the last four Super Bowls set average viewership records.

The record-breaking trend also extended to the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. With 115.3 million viewers watching Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers perform, it surpassed the 110.8 million delivered by Beyonce last year and the prior record of 114.0 million set by Madonna two years ago.
