Boston Pride Hockey’s “Pick-Up Pass” is back this winter for all of you who like to skate. The pass allows you to skate through April 6th at the Simoni Skating Rink in Cambridge each Thursday night.

This is a great way to get out, meet people and be more active during the winter months. For more information about Boston Pride Hockey and their annual winter skating at Simoni Skating Rink in Cambridge visit, bostonpridehockey.org/pick-up.

This weekly post would hardly last a month if it weren’t for the many odd and awkward sporting photos that have been contributed over the years. Much thanks to Mike from NY for sharing this week’s photo.

Hopefully the caption I’ve shared below inspires you to offer up one or two of your own. Leave a funny caption in the comment section, and I’ll approve it for readers to enjoy.

Here, let me get this for you. That’s much better.

The Big Gay Donation: FIFA edition

Much thanks to Fearsome Beard for sharing this a few days ago. And much thanks to Miriam Margoyles for putting this together. In her educational video, Miriam points out that, luckily the wonderful upstanding people who run Football [FIFA WORLD CUP] love “donations”.

Give this clip two minutes of your time.

The 2023 Bob-Spread Calendar

Last year’s innaugural Bob-Spread Calendar was realeased ahead of the 2022 Winter Olympics. The eye-catching pg-13 rated photos were definitely popular, and I made the case that the proceeds from sales which supported the men on the US bobsled team was just icing on the cake for making this purchase. The photos are being included in a new 2023 calendar that is for sale.

The models (and members of the 2022 US Men’s Bob Sled Team) include team: drivers – Hunter Church and Codie Bascue, and push athletes – Hakeem Abdul-Saboor, Kris Horn, Blaine McConnell, Jimmy Reed, Nic Taylor, Carlo Valdes, Charlie Volker and Josh Williamson.

Orders placed by Wednesday, December 21st will arrive in time for Christmas and make for a great gift or Yankee Swap at $25.00.

Winter Rendezvous: Gay ski week at Stowe Mountain

Winter Rendezvous is New England’s largest and longest running gay ski week party. This year the event will take place January 18-22, 2023. For those of you trying to buy a holiday gift for someone who enjoys skiing, this may be the perfect present. Winter Rendezvous includes events each night at the gorgeous Stowe Mountain resort in Vermont.

Official lodging venues include Top Notch Resort (host hotel), Brass Lantern Inn, and Stowe Motel, but people will be making reservations wherever they can find space and if you’re thinking of going, I’d recommend you do the same before places sell out.

This year’s parties and entertainers will include an amazing Tina Turner tribute by Debby Holiday, Miss Richfield 1981, Miss Jackie Beat, and several dance parties with great DJs. For more information about Winter Rendezvous 2023 visit the website, www.winterrendezvous.com.

Initially I thought this clip was hilarious but then I started thinking, I wonder what readers of BosGuy might have to say, and I decided it would make for a great caption this photo (or in this case, clip) post. Would love to read some witty captions.

“How you can tell who is left & right handed”

Boston gay sports clubs / teams

At the start of each academic year, tens of thousands of people move to Boston for the first time.  Whether you are new to Boston or just looking for an excuse to be more active and make friends, joining one of the many LGBTQ+ sports teams and clubs can help you do both.

Some sports leagues welcome beginners while others are more competitive (most are the former – not the latter). Additionally, some of these teams / leagues are seasonal so even though this post has gone live in early Fall, not every league is in session at the moment. Look through the list of 2+ dozen sports leagues and see which one is right for you.

If you don’t see relevant or up-to-date information on the league’s / team’s Facebook page, contact me, and I can provide you the name and email of the contact for that group for you to learn more. Alternatively, another great resource is the Facebook group, B.A.G.S. (Boston Alliance of Gay Sports) – check’em out.

Apologies if I have overlooked any area gay clubs or sports leagues.  Feel free to add information for any such group in the comments section of my blog

Friend and reader, Jim L. shared this photo with me. I really hope it was photoshopped, and there are not two teammates playing together with these last names. However you have to admit it does make for a particularly funny photo to caption.
