Two Hot Homosexual Soccer Players Coming to America’s TV Screens?

Apparently openly gay footballer Anton Hysen has a tongue ring.

One of the things we’ve been waiting for for a while in America is an openly gay active pro athlete. (Post-career de-closeting has been the norm so far.) Sweden got one when soccer player Anton Hysen came out this past March. Now it looks like Hysen might be coming to play for the United States. Over at On Top magazine, they’ve translated some Swedish sports magazine for the news:

According to Sportsbladet, Hysen has been approached by Major League Soccer (MLS) clubs the Sporting Kansas City and the Vancouver Whitecaps.

“I talked with them and it looks good, I can say,” Hysen said. “They are interested. It was a good talk and they have said what they want.”

david-testoThe second hot homo is David Testo, midfielder for the Montreal Impact and MVP in 2009, who came out last month in the Canadian press. He and the rest of his team are in a bit of a limbo right now—the whole roster has been released as they prepare to move from the North American Soccer League into the expanding Major League Soccer. And the North Carolina-born 30-year-old tells that he’s not sure if he’s going to retire before next season:

“I really don’t know my future in soccer right now. I haven’t personally closed the door on Montreal, but we’ll see what happens. If I were to go somewhere else, a lot of circumstances would have to be in place. I’m not just going to pick myself up and go to a city where I don’t know people, or if I don’t know the organization.

“I definitely know that I come with a little bit of baggage, and maybe a club is hesitant to pick me up now because of all this. But if that’s the case, then I don’t want to play for that organization anyway.”

Now we just have to make Americans pay some attention to soccer. Perhaps we in the gay media can engineer a plot to unite these two on a team and set them up on some dates. That’d get the some more gays to tune in, at least.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more

    But imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts
    more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this blog
    could definitely be one of the greatest in its
    niche. Great blog!

    After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked the
    -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every
    time a comment is added I get four emails with the exact same comment.
    Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service?

    Many thanks!
