File this under the pleasantly surprised category. Yahoo sports blog “Puck Daddy” (which has some gay overtones itself) is reporting that this years Stanley Cup champions, the Chicago Blackhawks will be present in this year’s Chicago pride parade, due to take place on June 27th.

Homosexuality pretty much doesn’t exist in popular North American professional sports, unless a player comes out after they’ve retired or it’s the butt of the joke. In one picture released from the Chicago dressing room moments after they won the cup, Pronger’s name is written on the board next to a clearly visible “gay”.

Hockey seems to be leading the way of sorts for acceptance of other sexualities. After the death of Toronto GM Brian Burke’s openly gay son Brendon, many players and hockey employees came out with statements of their support. I hope it doesn’t take any more untimely deaths to make any more progress.

They’ve been together since 2002, he proposed to her in 2007 at London celebrity restaurant The Ivy (not to be mistaken with LA celebrity restaurant with the same name). She obviously said yes and he then gave her a £50,000 ring at their Surrey mansion. Yowsas! Goal!

Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi. Today’s World Cup hottie, comes from the land down under. Instead of highlighting another European, I decided to spread the hottie wealth to include an Aussie. Let’s face it, the Australian accent is pretty darn hot.

He’s spent over 15 years of his career playing soccer in England. In 2006, he was named the 50th captain for the Australian national team.

Sorry boys, we’ll have to drool this hunk from afar. In 2008, he married his longtime girlfriend, Lindsay Morris. The two have two children (twins)- a boy and a girl. Talk about a hot DILF.

In: Patrick, Sports & Health

One of the more seasoned meat soccer hotties we’ve posted, 36 year old Fabio Cannavaro of Italy is one spicy meatball! He is well respected in the world of soccer/football, having won the FIFA World Player of the Year award in 2006. He was the first, and so far, only defender to receive the award. He was also the oldest ever recipient of the honor.

  • Height: 175 cm
  • Shirt number: 5
  • Position: Defender
  • Current club: Juventus (ITA)

He is married to Daniella Cannavaro, and they have three children. In a 2007 issue of League Magazine, revealed that he’s super into Asian women, especially those of Indian & Chinese descent, saying “The most beautiful of women lie in Asia, that in India and China, they are truly walking goddesses”. He neglected to mention anything about what time of men he was into. Maybe they’ll ask him next time?

Mamma Mia! This hot left-footed 26 year old Greek began his football career in 2001. After 3 seasons with PAS Giannina, was then signed to transfer to Panathinaikos, (with teammates, Alexandros Tziolis and Evangelos Mantzios) but he tested positive for an elevated T/E ratio (aka Steroids) and was suspended for two years. The elevated ratio was later found to be related to natural causes, but his transfer was still canceled. One year later, he made his way back to the field and played for 3.5 yrs for Panionios. He is known to be probably one of the best Greek left-side defenders.

Stats:

  • Date of Birth: October 10, 1983

  • Position: Defender
  • Current club: Panathinaikos (GRE)
