Tennis player Borna Coric is easy on the eyes

ATP tennis player, handsome tennis player CoricMany of you are unlikely to know who Borna Coric is but this past weekend he upset Roger Federer on grass at the Gerry Weber Open in Germany. With that win, the 21 year old Croat saw his ranking jump to just outside the top 20 (ATP ranking 21). His victory over Federer is all the more impressive when you realize that this is only his second title and his first on grass.

The fact that Borna Coric is so easy on the eyes will only continue to endear him to me. I hope that his recent victory over Roger Federer in Germany provides him with the confidence he will need to have a good run at Wimbledon, which officially starts next week on July 2nd.  Until that time enjoy these photos of the handsome 21 year old. coric ATP, croatian tennis player borna coricborna coric is so handsome, Coric ATPYou can bet, I’ll be writing about this guy again. Especially if he keeps winning.

Holiday gift idea: Warwick Rowers 2018 calendar

Are you and your friends planning a Yankee Swap or Secret Santa? Do you have a friend who is tough to buy for and you can’t spend a lot of money? Why don’t you consider the Warwick Rowers 2018 calendar?

At just under £10 you really only have to worry about ordering it in time to get here before your holiday party or gift swap.

For those who may be unfamiliar with the male rowers at the University of Warwick Boat Club, these men have been creating & selling calendars since 2009. Proceeds raised from the sale of their calendars, videos etc go to

  • Promote positive, inclusive and respectful attitudes towards people of all genders and sexualities through the content that they create
  • Fund university rowing and particularly to make rowing more accessible to a wider number of students
  • Ongoing development of Sport Allies, a registered charity with a mission to promote sport, and particularly team sport, as an inclusive and supportive route to personal growth for everyone

If none of that really matters, it doesn’t hurt that each year the young men are so damn good looking in that ‘guy-next-door’ sort of way. For their more revealing photos you’ll have to check them out online or better yet peruse their many products for sale, here.

How Gabe Kapler’s body image helped gay male sports fans

Boston Red SoxI wanted to highlight an article about body image and feeling comfortable in your own skin after reading an article earlier this month on the OUT Sports blog which featured former Red Sox outfielder and the next manager of the professional baseball team, Philadelphia Phillies.

Gabe “The Babe” Kapler (as I often referred to him) was featured in the blog’s post, Why new Phillies manager Gabe Kapler was important to gay male sports fansWhile I don’t know if I agree with all their points, I do agree that Gabe has an amazing body and has always been happy to pose shirtless. In an age where athletes continue to train to build endurance and avoid injury, Kapler was the rare professional baseball player with a great physique who liked to show it off.  While he is happily married with two teenage children, if my memory serves me correct he was a great advocate for his wife when she spoke out about domestic violence (something she had to contend with in a previous relationship) in addition to being socially accepting of LGBTQ issues.

Head of the Charles Regatta is this Saturday and Sunday

Head of Charles Regatta

Head of the Charles regatta is Saturday & Sunday, October 21-22

Every city has their own traditions and events that are distinctly their own. I like to write about these events here in Boston because it is easy to take them for granted or overlook how they contribute to and enrich the city. One such unique tradition which I associate with the autumn is the Head of the Charles Regatta.

The annual event typically occurs while foliage is nearing its peak each year in Boston and it can make for a beautiful backdrop for the 11,000+ athletes who are expected come to compete in the world’s largest regatta this weekend.

The Head Of The Charles Regatta (HOCR) is a Boston area tradition that dates back to 1965 and has evolved into the world’s largest rowing competition that spans two days, drawing more than 400,000 spectators who line the banks of the Charles River on both the Cambridge and Boston sides. Be sure to check it out. I prefer to watch from the Cambridge side between the Harvard footbridge and the JFK bridge but there really isn’t a bad place to watch

For more information about this world class event visit hocr.org or check out this really interesting infographic Boston Magazine published last year (2016) about this historic and truly world class event.

Gay Bowl XVII comes to Boston this weekend

gay boston, gay sportsThe Gay Bowl is the national LGBT flag football tournament, put on every Columbus Day weekend by the National Gay Flag Football League (NGFFL). Started in 2002 as an annual national championship tournament for LGBT flag football teams, about 40 teams will compete in multiple divisions (including a women’s division) from across North America in Boston this weekend.

I first wrote about the Gay Bowl in May when it was announced that the New England Patriots would sponsor the Gay Bowl, making them first NFL team to sponsor one of the annual Gay Bowl tournaments (and let’s hope not the last).

In addition to a lot of football that will be played through the weekend, a host of social events including a “Pep Rally” party tonight at the Emerald Lounge (how appropriate is that), Bracket Reveal Party later in the evening at ICON as well as parties each night, concluding on Sunday at Royale with a closing ceremony that will take place just prior to the large dance party from Chris Harris Presents in the same venue. For more information visit the website Gay Bowl XVII.

And just to give you a flavor of how fun Boston’s league is, I wanted to share this video from Boston’s F.L.A.G. flag football league – enjoy. If you think you may like to learn more about this group which was instrumental in bringing the Gay Bowl to Boston this year visit their Facebook page, here.
