    So is Sean Avery gay? Has that one been answered yet?

  • Rick Gold

    Sean Avery is not a homo.

    He is Canadian.

    And a hockey player.

    Generally, hockey is not filled with right wing religious nutbags like American football, baseball and basletball.

    Being more Canadian-focused than American-focused allows hockey to be more progressive about teh ghey.

    Evidence for this please? Sean Avery is a punk, and the last person in hockey I care about. There are rules in hockey now where unsportsmanlike conduct is called for shit Sean Avery did.

    He sucked as a Ranger the first time, sucked as a Star, and sucks as a Ranger now.

    Also, name for me on single NHL star who’s come out of the closet publicly. Until then, get off your high horse about how Canadians are so much more progressive than Americans. Jocks are jocks regardless of nationality.

    @NovaNardis: Not gay. He’s dating Supermodel Hilary Rhoda.

    Why do some people still simplistically ask if someone is gay or straight, instead of the more inclusive question of whether they are gay, BISEXUAL, or straight? Just because you date or marry a woman does not mean you are not bisexual.
