He’s established as deaf. You’re established as gay, so don’t be interrupting what we're trying to do here.’”

Hot for Eli


Two Giants fans were hot enough for Eli Manning the frigid temperatures didn't affect them as their team faced off against the Carolina Panthers in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

In another bit of adoration, ESPN's Skip Bayless put out a "Best Looking Quarterbacks" list this year, though Manning didn't make it:


In other football news, New England Patriots Wide Receiver Wes Welker was penalized for falling into the snow and making a snow angel after his touchdown. The Pats won 47-7.

A Moussed-Up Eli Manning Plays Fashion Model on Men's Vogue


Not to be outdone by last year's Super Bowl rival (and loser) Tom Brady, NY Giants QB Eli Manning fronts this month's Men Vogue. Can he look any less enthusiastic? Finally, they just draped the raincoat over his shoulders. Maybe they'll learn the lesson that not every football player wants to be a metrosexual magazine model.

News: Eric Bana, Puddle, Steve-O, 90210, John Gibson, Jamaica

road.jpg International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association condemns Jamaica: “We call immediately on Jamaica’s community leaders to cease their oppression. We will continue to speak up and to spotlight these cruel and bigoted actions before tourism and business leaders everywhere. IGLTA is in complete solidarity with Jamaica’s own LGBT leadership, J-FLAG. Therefore, like J-flag, it is not our intention to provoke reprisals or political condemnation in Jamaica by supporting a global tourism boycott. We understand this step could be counter-productive to making true progress in that Caribbean nation, and instead we will focus on education, publicity and market competition to highlight and help curb these terrible abuses."

road.jpg John Gibson, the FOX radio host who mocked Heath Ledger following the actor's death, has lost his TV spot: "The network confirmed this week that 'America’s Election HQ,' a program that displaced 'The Big Story' temporarily last month, would continue indefinitely. The program’s hosts, Bill Hemmer and Megyn Kelly, also anchor the network’s mid-morning newscast and are seen as rising stars on the channel. The change was first reported by the blog TVNewser.com. John Gibson, the longtime host of 'The Big Story,' will continue to have a role on television, the network said, although it appears that his future for now lies mostly on radio. For two years Mr. Gibson, a conservative commentator, has been the host of a three-hour program for Fox News Radio immediately following his television show."

Planetroad.jpg The case for another Earth-sized planet in our solar system, beyond the orbit of Neptune: "A newly released paper shows that may very well be the case. A team of scientists ran a whole mess of simulations, and found that a small planet (in this case, around half the size of the Earth) could have formed inside Neptune’s orbit (where there was plenty of material in the early solar system), gotten tossed into a bigger orbit by Neptune, and then knocked around the orbits of the iceballs, distorting their orbits and creating the Kuiper Cliff."

Noosa is not the gay capital of Australia. Noosa gets many gay visitors after the mardi gras, they are welcome like every other Australian, Joe. I am not a bigot and I am not closed of mind."

Then, MoveOn members and the public will rate the ads, and a panel of top artists, netroots heroes, and filmmaking professionals will pick the winner from among top ads. We'll air the winning ad nationally, and the winner will receive a gift certificate for $20,000 in video equipment." MoveOn has collected a gaggle of celebrities to judge the spots, including Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, John Legend, Moby, James Schamus, Rory Kennedy, and Michael Franti.

road.jpg Northern Irish councillor calls opening of gay bar 'foolish': "A veteran Strabane councillor has said he believes there is 'not a need' for a gay bar in the town. James O'Kane, an Independent member of Strabane District Council, claimed it would be 'very foolish.' The North West gay community has widely welcomed the annoucement of Strabane's first gay bar. However, speaking to the 'Journal,' Councillor O'Kane said: 'My own assumption is that it would be very very foolish to open it, it wouldn't be welcome. I'm a pioneer myself so I would not be frequenting these places anyway but I couldn't see it operating in the town. In this day and age we are all liberal but I can't see a need for it, I suppose only time will tell,' Colr. O'Kane said."

Super Bowl Champ Eli Manning the next 2(x)ist Underwear Model?


The latest athlete-to-underwear model rumor to hit the field is that New York Giant Super Bowl champ Eli Manning may show some skin. The NY Daily News' Jo Piazza reports: "Calvin Klein may be trying to get into Tom Brady's pants (the company, not the designer, to make him the brand's new underwear model!), but word on the street is sexy men's underwear line 2(x)ist is trying to get his rival, Giants quarterback Eli Manning, to model their teeny-weeny, bikini-style briefs."

Actually, the Brady rumors have been denied, but Brady is certainly ahead in the sexy endorsements department, and this would give Eli some indecent exposure.
