    Naw, I was offering one to Hossie. I just thought a pitcher of kumquat margaritas sounded good and was going to offer a drink to Ms. Mod & Sundrop. I figured Hossie could do with a belt of something as well.
    You're welcome to have one, too.

    Well, hell.....first round's on me! Kumquat margaritas for the people, I say!

What an absurd thing!
    Wow, I had absolutely no idea this tempest was brewing. Certainly it wasn't my intent to cause a ruckus.

    I think perhaps you took so much umbrage to the first part of what I said that you missed the second part ... which is pretty much exactly what you're saying: it's likely "a small percentage" (quoting myself) of men who do that. Lots of guys (and women, but generally it's more perceived as a guy thing) just ... like sports. And gay men are still men.

    But there are gay men who engage in typically masculine endeavors that they might not fully enjoy as cover, especially if they grow up in an environment where they don't feel safe being who they are openly. All you have to do, if you don't know people like that yourself, is google it to see story after story of gay or transgender kids doing everything they could to fit in as a matter of survival. Sports, especially certain contact sports, are typically viewed as a masculine thing, and are therefore a great place to "hide." Heck, there are plenty of straight kids who play football not because they want to but because their dad wants to vicariously relive his glory days as a high school quarterback. I'm not saying it should be that way; I'm just saying that it is. I don't follow sports (pretty much at all), but even I can recall reading about several professional athletes "coming out"--after they retire. It's always after they retire. Maybe 95% of those played for the love of the game ... but it is not a stretch, not at all, to think that there is a small percentage of people who fear coming out so much that they spend their young adulthood concealing who they are by using sports.

    My intent was not to be insulting at all, and I do not think the truth of the thing is insulting. It simply is. It's just a sad part of the human condition. I agree; it's absurd. Did you know one of the top five regrets people have on their deathbeds is that they wish they'd been able to be themselves, to tell other people how they feel?
