You Know How I Know You're Gay...
Personally, I prefer the line about macramé-ing yourself a pair of gym shorts, but playing soccer works too...I guess. Leave it to the Brits to come up with something like this - what a persecution complex...
Anyways, yes, according to a recent "article" on football.co.uk (via Outsports), the Brits believe one of the reasons Soccer has never caught on here in the States is because of "homosexuality." Really, "homosexuality."
Their overt justification for this is that since Soccer lacks the contact (or "manly" aspect) that more "American sports" like Football have, it is seen as "homosexual" (by Americans). To that I say - have you ever watched wrestling? I mean I know that's not the most popular American sport. But I'm pretty sure despite the fact that they roll around on a mat with other dudes, no one would have the balls to call any of those guys gay (well, maybe this guy). Wait, that didn't quite work, did it?...eh, go with it.
Sounds pretty ridiculous if you ask Duderino. All you needed to tell him was that ineedone plays Soccer. Case in point.
PS - No that picture has nothing to do with soccer being gay, but it has everything in the world to do with Brady Quinn being gay-ish. And to some of us, that's funny.
