Watch: Yankees Fans Proudly Torment 2 Male Teens With ‘Y R U Gay’ Anthem

It's no secret the New York Yankees' stadium is filled with fine members of society who know all the words to "Y R U Gay," the uncreative spoof on the Village People's "YMCA" that's used to taunt fans of the opposing team. Videos of fans targeting complete strangers are not new to the Internet. Generally speaking, "Y R U Gay" is (one of?) the theme song of the Bleacher Creatures, a loosely knit group of Yankees fans in the cheap seats in the back. And while, after being alerted to fans singing the song (because they were blind to it otherwise?), the team's flack said "the Yankees have zero tolerance for this and any kind of abuse," and that any singing "Y R U Gay" will "not be tolerated," and that security will begin policing the bleachers for such public performances, here we see what appears to be two mop-haired male teens being surrounded by a group of adult men, waving their fingers in the younger guys' faces, asking them why they're gay, and testifying they saw them "sucking some D-I-C-K.:

Tony Giles wins at Europa

If you’re gonna compete in a bodybuilding contest, here’s a good pieces of advice: Talk to me first.

Earlier this year, I profiled porn star Mark Dalton prior to his competing in the Ronnie Coleman Classic, a well-known muscle show here in the Metroplex, and Dalton won first place in the novice heavyweights category and best overall novice.

Then a few weeks ago, I profiled Tony Giles, who models as Tony DaVinci, as he prepared for the Europa Supershow event, which took place last weekend in Dallas. And how did he do? Best novice middleweight, best novice overall and best open middleweight — the most medals of anyone there. Not bad for first-timer. (Dalton also competed at Europa, in the light-heavyweight category, but failed to place.)

Great results for Giles, though it was, he admits, different that what he expected would happen.

Giles had planned to compete as a light-heavyweight (Dalton’s class), but the day of the weigh-in — following a water fast and taking diuretics — he had dropped too many pounds to qualify.

“On Thursday I weighted 182 and by weigh-in on Friday I was 176,” he says. That was too low for light-heavyweight and the lightest he could be and still qualify as a middleweight. It may have been a blessing, though. “It was actually a good thing because those guys were huge.”

Even Giles admits the loss of fat — and water — made him look gaunt if not actually unrecognizable, so the first thing he did was eat: A cheeseburger, french fries and carrot cake, followed that evening with pizza. No food ever tasted so good. The proof? In less than a week, Giles has bulked up again by 29 lbs., clocking in at 205.

Despite all the torment, he plans to compete again. He’s on vacation this week and will skip the next season, but plans to be back for the Junior USA contest after that. He’ll need to change the regimen for that one, though: He needs to gain 15 pounds of muscle.

Piece of cake. Carrot cake. And only when he’s done.
