    OK, for those of you who have doubted whether Tebow is, in fact, gay–when the rest of us have insisted that he is–I rest my freakin’ case! Not just a pedicure–but in WEST HOLLYWOOD.

    I just wonder how this is all going to play out. Is he going to somehow try to reconcile the “Christian” community and the gay community and become a pivotal figure in American culture?

    Or is he going to prove to be the closet case from hell–in bed with the most virulent homophobes by day and in bed with his boyfriend by night?….until he is found out and it all comes crashing tragically down……

    Is he going to make history as the first out player in NFL history and become a historical figure just for doing that…..or use his prominence to do evil?

    Somehow, some way, this is going to become dramatic, either in a good way or a bad way….and I hope he can handle the consequences, whatever they are, because he could easily be torn to ribbons by them…..

    And is Kiwi going to make history by submitting his 1,000,000th slam against Rick?

    Carlos and Fernando – I LOVE them! So handsome and so in love. I LOL to read they “stole” eggs to have children. How much more committed can you be then that! And that they have remained together, despite the odds, for five years and staying together for their lives is expected. Very sweet.

    The linked Pinknews story about the flamingos says “Britain’s only gay flamingos….”

    They may be Britain’s only OUT gay flamingos, but there could be other “straight-acting” gay flamingo couples on the downlow in Britain.

  5. Frank Butterfield says

    Doesn’t the flamingo in the background have his eye on his partner in a way that seems to say, “Still hot after 5 years!” Maybe I’m just projecting…

  6. Frank Butterfield says

    Andy — The story about the flamingos is actually nearly 6 years old. So, if they are still around, they would be getting close to their 11th anniversary. I do hope they are together and still flocking around…

  7. Gordon says

    I’d like to think the flamingo’s are winking at the gay divorce rate. “caption: oh aye?!” it was bad straight marrieds hittin on me but gay marrieds are worse – not botherd but lifestyle, the last person they have sex with is hubbie…

  8. Contrarian says

    Tebow’s new coach Ryan has a well documented foot fetish with Mrs. Ryan, his spouse. Coincidence? I think not. There are many ways to gain the favor of your boss, particularly when you are #2 in the depth chart.

  9. Alan says

    More hatred for Tim Tebow. I am a gay man who happens to love f**king hot Tim Tebow. I’d lick him up and down, but the rest of you queens hate yourself so much that you’d sooner be caught dead than sucking Christian c**k.

    shame on you. SHAME. Get a life, losers.

  10. Rick says

    “How many bracelets can you wear and still be straight? Anyone? Tebow?”

    Well, at least one of them is no doubt a WWJD bracelet, so that one doesn’t count. Not that that matters in the overall context. LOL.

    @ALAN Relax, man. All these guys would lick Tebow up and down, “Christian” or not(regardless of their PC statements to the contrary). And my comment, at least, was not “hateful.” I think he has an opportunity to be a pivotal figure in American cultural history…..but I also think he has the potential to become as tragic a figure as Whitney Houston did.

    I personally am hoping for the former. Whitney never could reconcile her sexuality with her religious beliefs….I hope Timmy finds a way to do so and becomes a national hero in the process…..rather than ending up like Whitney did.

    I wish him all the best in figuring it out.

    Why didn’t my high school guidance counselor talk to me about a career as a pedicurist? I could have been somebody! I could have pedicured Tim’s feet. Hey, he ain’t Tom Brady but he ain’t too shabby.

  12. uffda says

    I’ve always loved flamingos but cringe now knowing that Rick is going to start complaining that they’re PINK and that it’s just uncalled for. But I like Rick too. And OS2GUY is a joy

    And Tim Tebow…isn’t he just a pin head that attention paid to makes pin heads of others?
