Beat the Heat softball tournament finale

Hanging out with the jocks
Although we don’t mind sitting through the Beat the Heat softball tourney all weekend long, we can’t help but swoon over the athletes all washed up for the awards finale. Besides, it’s air conditioned inside.

GOP Sen. Jeff Sessions Takes Odd DADT Question About Gay High School Athletes

The interviewer was trying to make a comparison between presumably tough soldiers and high school athletes who may be showering with gay students, but it’s not clear that Sessions really got the point.

Gay Games Athletes Now Free to Drug Themselves With Abandon

Athletes competing at the Gay Games in Cologne were subject to competition-wide random drug testing, and that got the queers upset! So the Federation of Gay Games just voted 48-4-2 to do away with the practice in 2014, which returns to 2006's rules that only make bodybuilding, powerlifting, and wrestling subject to peeing in a cup; other sports can still drug test, but only if there's a compelling reason to do so. The main controversy? The World Anti-Doping Agency protocols, which the 2010 Games used, "are not sensitive to older recreational athletes [like these guys] or poz athletes [steroids are often prescribed for facial wasting], two historically important groups of Gay Games participants," according to a motion the FGG voted on, which also claimed money devoted to drug testing could be used toward sports scholarships.
