Washington Redskins Running Back Clinton Portis: 'I'm Not Gay'


Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis explained late last week (in a strange, attention-grabbing, excuse-filled, irrational response to a reporter upon return to training camp) that just because he dyed his hair and beard blond while he was away, he's not gay:

Portisredskins "Why did I go blond? I just felt like doing something different. You know, I think even with that, from what I hear, now I'm gay? I don't think there's a woman in the United States of America that would say I'm gay. So, you know, I don't hang around men, I don't live a private life, there's constantly people around me. You know, I did it because that was something that I felt like doing. At the moment it was like, 'Ohhh, I want to do something weird and different,' and that's what I did, I dyed my hair blond. You know, it wasn't an attention seeker. I actually was out of the country, I left the country after I did it, so I wasn't even over here once I did it. So it was just an experiment."

NFL Fanhouse couldn't find any accusations regarding his sexuality or reasons for Portis to be bringing up a denial.

  6. Gee, Clinton, like, um, no one really cared in the first place, but since you brought it up.... um, did you go blonde all over?

  7. Clinton,

    you don't have to act dumb because you turned blonde. That stereotype was disproven by Jayne Mansfield.

    As for being gay? I think Clinton would make a fabulous butch queen right after he learns how to vogue in spandex...with those might runningback buttocks.

    Let's not be shady, Miss Clint, just fierce!
