For this week’s Sports Stud, we’re featuring Australian CrossFit athlete, Khan Porter. The 26-year old (who by the way I got to see compete at the CrossFit Games in LA a couple years ago) had a video he posted to his Facebook page that went viral this week so he seems like the obvious choice. More importantly, it’s what he said in a followup to the video going viral. The video featured Porter dancing to Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” before and after doing performing a snatch (an olympic lift). As a follow up to the video, Khan posted a note about “Beyoncé, Masculinity and Mental Health“. Here’s what he had to say:

“If you guys watched my Beyoncé video yesterday, I would love you to take a moment out of your day and read the following. Yesterday I reposted a video of myself dancing to Beyoncé and at the time of writing it, it’s been watched over 1.5 million times. It’s also been Shared a bunch and even made its way on to TV haha.”

Read his important message below and check out the aforementioned video and some pictures from his Instagram as well!

It’s an Olympic year which means plenty of hot eye candy to keep us glued to the television during the dog days of summer. Without a doubt, the gymnastics discipline is stacked with studly guys. Who doesn’t love a compact dude with thick thighs and a ripped torso?

During the 2012 London Olympics, I had a difficult time, narrowing it down to the Top 15 Hottest Male Gymnasts. I can’t wait to go through that arduous task once again for the 2016 Rio Olympics 😉

Several members of the US men’s squad are in Brazil training and soaking up the sun, much to the delight of their Instagram followers. Check out Jake Dalton, Danell Leyva, Sam Mikulak and others shirtless below. All deserve a gold medal in hotness IMHO.

For 18 seasons, Bill Kennedy has officiated over 1,000+ games in the NBA, becoming one of the league’s top referees. Following an on-court incident involving Sacramento Kings player, Rajon Rondo, Kennedy decided to come out as gay publicly.

“I am proud to be an NBA referee and I am proud to be a gay man,” Kennedy told Yahoo Sports on Sunday night. “I am following in the footsteps of others who have self-identified in the hopes that will send a message to young men and women in sports that you must allow no one to make you feel ashamed of who you are.”

After being ejected from a game between the Boston Celtics, Rondo hurled a “disturbing torrent of anti-gay slurs,” according to Yahoo Sports. “You’re a mother-fucking faggot. … You’re a fucking faggot, Billy,” was some of the language used. Instead of leaving the court, as per league protocol, the 29-year-old player began stalking Kennedy.

Rondo is the third player to be punished by the league for using homophobic slurs. Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah and Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant were fined $50,000 and $100,000 respectively for their offences.

Rondo is suspended for Sacramento’s game with the Houston Rockets tomorrow. Reportedly, he’ll lose $86,300 in game salary. Rondo took to Twitter to deliver a half-ass apology. Read it below, along with a statement from the NBA.

Until we hear it from the horse’s proverbial mouth, nothing is for certain. After all, Maroon 5, Britney Spears and Bruno Mars at one point have been attached to the coveted gig. Coldplay was also a possibility.

With all that being said, multiple sources have confirmed to US magazine that the British rock band has signed on officially to headline the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show. According to the publication, Mars will be involved in the show at some capacity, as will other “friends of the group.”

With Coldplay releasing their seventh and rumored last studio album, A Head Full of Dreams, on December 4, the timing for this high-profile gig couldn’t be more perfect. Reports have it the NFL will officially announce the headliner in the coming weeks.

Do you think Coldplay can deliver a kick-ass halftime show? Weigh in below. Super Bowl 50 is set to take place on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2016.

UPDATE: It’s official. Coldplay scored the gig. Watch the announcement below.

It’s no secret that I have a huge thing for Diego Miguel. Pretty much anything new featuring the Brazilian model, I’ll post. Especially if it involves him being shirtless.

Diego graces not one, but two covers for Men’s Health Espana. Both require Miguel showing his moves on a pommel horse. Check out the other captivating cover below snapped by Edu Garcia.

It’s the end of an era for the Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe Bryant revealed his upcoming 20th season in the National Basketball Association will be his last. The 37-year-old athlete made the announcement in a thoughtful poem, titled “Dear Basketball,” over at Players Tribune.

Over his storied career, the shooting guard has five NBA championships under his belt, winning the title of NBA Finals MVP twice. In 2008, he earned the NBA Most Valuable Player title. Check out his poetic retirement announcement below.

Sports Stud: Mac Danzig

For this week’s Sports Stud, we’re featuring a retired American mixed martial artist named Mac Danzig. The 35-year old competed as a lightweight in several MMA promotions, most notably the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He made his official debut in the UFC in 2007 and retired in March of 2014.

Another interesting thing about Danzig is that he has been a vegan since 2004 and is an animal rights advocate. He’s been interviewed a lot about his raw vegan diet because the perception out there is that you need meat to be strong (especially for a sport like mixed martial arts) but he has helped debunk that theory and share the benefits of his diet and how he has made it successful.

Check out his pictures and videos below!
