The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series will come to Boston next month on Saturday, June 3, 2023. This annual tour first came to Boston in 2011 and this will mark the fifth time the competition has brough some of the world’s best cliff divers to the city. The backdrop of Boston’s skyline and harbor makes for some impressive photos and draws huge crowds to the Seaport each year.
Boston lacks cliffs (we barely even have hills) so Red Bull turns the Institute of Contemporary Art into a 90′ diving platform. If you’ve never been, mark this date on your calendar and check it out. The best views are from Pier 4, but the largest crowds will congregate on Fan Pier.
Below is a video I created after going to the first competition in 2011.
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 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.

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”.
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 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.
