Top 10 Things Gay Men Can Love About Football

By Lawrence Pfeil, Jr.

Does the kick-off of football season have you looking at that black mess on players cheekbones and wonder, “why do they buy eyeliner and mascara  at the dollar store?”

Do you imagine “training camp” is a place for wanna-be drag queens?

Do you think the gridiron is what your dry cleaner uses to press your shirts?

Do you believe the difference between a fullback, halfback, and quarterback is a “Buy-One-Get-One half off” sale?

Well then theOUTfront is here to highlight some the gayer points of America’s secular religion.

Tailgating

What man doesn’t enjoy wrapping his lips around a thick sausage or having a tossed salad before the “big game?”

Scoring

It doesn’t matter if you’re playing touch or tackle, when you score, you win!

 

Man Crushing

Cheering

Football Is Like Sex

Super Bowl (halftime) Parties

The Super Bowl Sunday has become America’s high holy day for gluttony parties across the country.  Starting hours before kickoff, competition for the best wings, pizza, chili, dip, and any other artery hardening delicious crowd pleaser begins.  Along with the food is the estimated 325.5 million gallons of beer that wash it all down.  But for those of us sitting in the “Lavender Seats” are really only playing along to see the halftime spectacular.  While we don’t know who that will be this year or which teams will be playing each other yet, Super Bowl LVII will be played in Glendale, Arizona on February 12, 2023.
