About Boston Ironsides: For over 20 years, the Boston Ironsides has brought together men from a tremendous range of backgrounds. We are players just out of college, seasoned rugby veterans, and men of every age who’ve just taken up the sport. We are accountants, engineers, bartenders, designers, students, and more. We are native Bostonians and players from all over this country – and others. We are gay, straight, and somewhere in between. Our differences make us stronger as a team, and every new member adds to that strength.
It appears that Boston will have two gay kickball leagues starting this September. In an earlier post this summer I wrote about America’s Finest Kickball League which hosted a pick up game earlier this month and will start their season September 17th.
Above is a promo for The Varsity Gay League (VGL) which is a Los Angeles-based gay sports league that operates in California, Texas, Florida, Oregon and Colorado. VGL kickball season starts on September 9th. They will also be hosting free scrimmages August 20th, 27th .

Just in time for Bear Week, The Boston Ironsides Rugby Club will host a fundraiser at Harbor Lounge (located at 359 Commercial Street) in Provincetown. This year’s event comes with some new twists.
There is no cover for this event, so bring your friends and stop by to enjoy a fun afternoon full of surprises, knowing that proceeds raised at this event will benefit the Boston Ironsides Rugby Football Club that is part of NERFU (New England Rugby Football Union) and IGR (International Gay Rugby).
For more information about this fantastic group of guys and the event in Provincetown on Wednesday, July 12th from 12 – 3PM check out their event page, Come & Scrum.
ESPN’s “Body Issue” raises a lot of eyebrows each year, but the photo of New England Patriot, Julian Edelman, (shown below), which has been making the rounds on the Internet has half of Boston drooling.
The likable wide receiver (no double entendre intended) that is actually a legit position in football, quads are so crazy strong I can’t stop looking at them. This is a man who has obviously never owned a pair of skinny jeans.
I’ve been watching the French Open since the tournament started but I’ll likely miss the biggest matches of the tournament since Sergio and I will be traveling. This year’s tournament has had some amazing matches and some even more dazzling players. Like this Hungarian player, Márton Fucsovics who is currently ranked 148th in the world. Hopefully he can improve his game because I’d love to see more of him on the courts.
How do you say, “More, Please” in Hungarian?
Gay Bowl XVII Boston || October 5-8, 2017
This past Saturday night, Boston’s LGBT Flag Football group announced at their annual spring awards banquet that the New England Patriots will be a sponsor of the Gay Bowl 17 and the announcement was confirmed by Outsports.
The Gay Bowl is the national LGBT flag football tournament, put on every Columbus Day weekend by the National Gay Flag Football League (NGFFL). For more information visit the website Gay Bowl XVII.
One thing I have to say about Boston’s Flag Football group is that they know how to have a lot of fun. I always like their videos like this most recent compilation. If you would like to learn more about this Boston gay inclusive sports league, visit their Facebook page, here.
