Gay rugby players?

I'm having a bit of fun with how people find my blog at the moment.

Last week someone found this site searching for "Rob Kearney gay rumours" on Google.

This week it seems searching for gay rugby players is still in fashion, with folks arriving here googling "Paul O'Connell gay rumours" and "Alan Wyn Jones Osprey coming out gay." I also had another seven hits from French Google searching for "Rob Kearney gay" - presumably a response to my previous post on the topic.

Again, I'll say I'm sorry to disappoint but I don't know or care if they are or are not gay.

They just better play decent when they go on tour.

I agree, it does not matter if a player is gay or not, its how he preforms for the duration of the match that counts.

lol i know what you mean about people arriving on your site by googling strange stuff. My hits went up by 80% yesterday and received over 1,000 new visitors.

I thought, eh whats going on, even over the last few days my hits have gone from around 200 a day to well over 700.

I checked my stats counter and history combined with feejit, well it appears that it was Mothers Day in America a few days back and i did an article on "Don't forget its Mothers Day" when it was our Mothers Day. They arrived by googling, "When is mothers day"..

Its sent my stats into hyper mode

As a gay sportsman myself I hate the fact that in certain sports this is still seen as an issue. People say you can't be an out sportsman in a team sport. BS!

When I came out in what was the top bowls team in the country it just became part of our pre-match banter during the warm up we were always joking about the sexual exploits coming up in the evening post-game drinking and clubbing session. (yes we had a very young average age) But if anyone from the oppostion dared to take offence of make homophobic comments the rest of the team jumped to my defence.

As for the excuse that the physical sports where communal showers occur after the game. Malc you and I both know after competing and given 100% you are in no fit state to immediately have sex you need a little bit of a rest first(though I have seen many fine examples in showers down through the years).

If are fans are so ill educated that the players are scared we only have to look at the education that has happened since the first black footballers. I'm often responding to the homophobic chants of my fellow fans and suddenly they stop no believing that they have offended one of their own.

Google can throw up some funnies...

I recently blogged about why can't we get rid of Lord Foulkes, and entitled the post "How to flush away the biggest poo". Since then, that page has been my second most viewed post (behind 'how to solve unemployment') purely through some hilarious google searches.

(e.g. - "large poos that won't flush", "why won't poo flush away when I flush it". Childish, I know, but the volume of searches are too funny)

I heard about this new program in NYC, entirely devoted to gay men...Gay Men's Boot Camp. I think this is a great idea! I will start my first day Tomorrow and I am totally excited about it. Thanks GMBC!!!

You're totally right about this, who cares if they are or not gay? the three of them are awesome players, i care about their performance and their outstanding games!!! besides, they're tough guys, don't need to take cheap viagra you know..?
