ode to the gays

It Was Almost Impossible For Freddie Ljungberg To Get Sexier. And Then He Did Just That

There’s been a gay rumor for a long time. I don’t mind at all. I am proud of that. I love fashion, and I think so many gay people have amazing style. So that is a compliment to me. I really don’t know why people are so interested. I just made a decision that I won’t talk about it.

    Queerty: You’d be the perfect blog if ya didn’t miss the details on occasion.

    Freddie Ljungberg is NOT retired! He only retired from International play, which most soccer players do when they get to their early-to-mid 30’s.

    He plays every game for Seattle Sounders FC in Major League Soccer. He’d still be in Europe right now if it weren’t for the fact that he played two years with a broken hip… and didn’t even know it. He was considered a liability after he had surgery to repair the damage and Seattle made him a juicy offer.

    The guy is a fantastic guy off the field, but this year has been rough on him. He’s picking up the reputation for being a complainer, of both his teammates and of the referee’s calls. Some argue that this is a contributing reason for Seattle’s poor start to the season.

    I hope he can help lead a turnaround because Seattle’s fans deserve a decently performing team.

    Of course… they can keep on losing to my Galaxy. I won’t mind. ;-)

    If Morning Goods looked like this every day, there’d never be another complaint.

  • alan brickman

    very nice straight guy…need more of him…

  • Lucius vorenus

    All Swedes are bisexual. That is what makes them great.

  • Eminent Victorian

    Freddie is a wonderful guy who, as a few have stated before, is not retired from soccer at all (something you’d have learned if you’d read the entire article from which your “gay” quote was pulled). We’re thrilled to have him play here in Seattle.

  • Alex

    He would be attractive if he weren’t so small, first time I saw him in Stockholm was rather disappointed – also I like short guys (bf is shorter) but this guy has been over exposed.

  • declanto

    @Lucius vorenus: That is sooooo pathetic.

  • declanto

    @Alex: Size counts, I guess, but proportions rule. He’s delicious!
