- Does anybody remember Jim Palmer and all those Jockey underwear ads he did?
- Matt Biondi. My sister's best friend had a magazine (People or something) that had a full-page ad featuring him shirtless, and I somehow convinced my sister to get her friend to clip it out for me.
- Pete Sampras, ca. 1994
- Mark Spitz and I spent a lot of time on those Jim Palmer underwear adds too :-)
- K E V I N E L S T E R
- More MLB athletes than I can name.
- Boris Becker. Those thighs....grrrrrrrrrr.
- In the summer of 1986, while the other gay boys were swooning over the pretty boys in Duran Duran and Wham! I was having a torrid and imaginary affair with Keith Hernandez.
- mmmmmmmm Kurt Thomas!
- Steve Garvey and his hairy, meaty forearms.
- Who was the short, tubby one?
- Greg Louganis with his tight body and little speedo.
Another Jim Palmer fan here, too.
- Bucky Dent was a hottie in his day
- Jan-Michael Gambill.
- Keith Hernandez is at least bi.
- The Bull of the Pampas: Guillermo Vilas
- R15 please, dont tease me like that.
- He is kind of before my time, but good god, he was gorgeous.
- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
- Cam Newton
- Steve Young
When I was a kid, before I knew I was gay, I knew I wanted to spend quality time with Steve Young. I later found out that he was something called "Mormon." Even later I learned that Mormons wear "magic underwear" and I immediately wanted to see Steve in his garments. I must have been 11 or so.
- When I was living in SF and Steve Young was with the Niners there were the requisite gay rumors. Of course that follows anyone in the public eye but with him it was particularly delicious because he was so beautiful and so Mormon.
- Casey Kahne
- Anders Järryd and Stefan Edberg.
- For R10:
Another of Steve Garvey.
- OJ Simpson (seriously)
- Mark Gastineau did it for me, specifically these photos. There was abandoned tennis court near our house with weeds growing through the cement, totally private. I used to fantasize that I would "accidentally" wonder upon him sunbathing in that private area, with one thing leading to another, til he fucked the brains out of me.
- R27 I remember him. Didnt he turn out to be a big jerk who got busted beating his wife or something?
- Yeah, r28, he was a pretty shady guy, but as a gay teen in the 1980s, he drove me insane with lust. His type really did it for me back then. Rick Rude was another one who drove me nuts with desire.
- Bobby Orr
and, heaven help me, Bubba Smith. I met him over a few days when my uncle was an entrepreneur in sports merchandising. He was friendly, charming, solicitous, even flirty with me the little gayling, and quite handsome in his younger days. And very tall. I presume he was straight, he had a lot of women around him.
Many years later he attended my uncle's funeral and was a different person. Riddled with health problems, heavy drinker, very overweight, aged badly. But not all the charm was gone. He and a bunch of us got really blotto in my cousin's hotel room. He had a woman with him but he sent her back to his room in the same hotel, saying it was "guys only."
She acquiesced easily, like she was used to it. She was pretty rough herself, a greasy little blonde on her 30s, the type who drinks Nyquil.
He and I only spoke one on one for a few minutes. He remembered me, said he knew then I was "gay boy." Made a few blowjob jokes, and kept drinking. Eventually a few of us had to bring him to his room, including my then partner. My partner's comment... "You were attracted to that!!!???"
- R29 LOL I remember Rick Rude, and yea, my teen dick responded to that. Hernandez, Rude, Gastineau. Sounds like we had the same taste in men.
- Ravishing Rick Rude. Also NFL Russ Francis. I also remember Jim Brown's dick shots in Playgirl. The golden age.
- Some Olympians were the earliest athlete crushes I remember having.
Speedskaters Eric Heiden & Dan Jansen
Gymnast Bart Conner
- Alex Corretja
- Dan Marino
I look at them now and they look like dumb lugs, plus I don't go for tall guys either.
- I like the girlies, but can appreciate male eye candy, and LOVED the Jim Palmer underwear ads. I saw him once on the street not long after he retired, and he was still amazingly handsome.
I was also a fan of Pam Shriver back in the day, and she's aged well, in a preppy way. (And no matter how many times she's married, including to that guy who played 007, she STILL pings to me.
- Johnny Bench
- Gabriela Sabatini!
The grace, the beauty, the topspin...
- Bucky Dent. End of thread (giggles).
- Kevin Von Erich (hottest of the three wrestling brothers). 6'2" and all lean muscle. SEX on a fucking stick. Woof!
- Another one of Kevin. Yummmmm!
- One more of porn star--
I mean wrestler Kevin.
- Stop this. What if one of those fine upstanding athletes were to read that some perverted children were doing immoral things while thinking about them.
They'd feel awful. Stop trying to justify your perversion by making fine upstanding people feel bad.
- Gene Washington
- R44 Do you need us to fetch you your smelling salts?
- r44, isn't there some scrapbooking you should be doing, or some candlelight vigil that needs to be organized? Run along now...
- Dave DeBusschere.
- Recognizing straightforward parody posts: always a challenge on DL.
- No kidding.
- R49 we actually have had a troll for sometime who has been pitching a fit because they fear some innocent party is going to wander in here and be offended, so its easy to make the mistake.
- The use of "fine, upstanding" should have given him away, R51.
- Does the Soloflex guy count as an athlete?
- "Speedskaters Eric Heiden & Dan Jansen"
Dan Jansen was hot
- speedskaters legs and ass oh fuck me
- Mark Grace
- Astylos of Croton
- Greg Louganis
- Mike Tomczak, former QB for the Ohio State University Buckeyes football team.
Damn that motherfucker was HOT.
- Steve Lundqvist
- Ron Darling
- Alberto "La Bomba" Tomba
- Something about those Lundqvists... check out Henrik Lundqvist of the Rangers. He looks like he stepped out of a Men At Play shoot.
- Boris Becker Went to the matches just to watch him serve and fall out of his jockstrap...then re adjust Mmmmmm
- Yes, R38! After all these years she still does it for me! Those drenched tops, those long tanned legs, that fine butt and smile.... :faints:
- I wanted arch rival decathletes Daley Thompson and Jurgen Hingsen to fuck me ten different ways.
- Does anyone remember Bubby Brister? He was hot
- Andre Agassi. He was so cute and sexy AND emotional, and I wanked thinking about him many times. I remember when he won the Wimbledon in 1992 after years of always losing in the Grand Slams. After the game I had to go to my room and cry in secret because the fight had been so huge. It was David winning Goliath, i.e. Goran Ivanisevic who was a machine. Agassi was human, a bundle of nerves and that game was an emotional rollercoaster the way only the greatest tennis games can be.
- How sweet, R69.
- Billy Kilmer (Redskins Quaterback) and Jimmy Conners. I kept scrapbooks of every article from the Washington Post. Not sure why Kilmer fascinated me. Maybe an Under Dog thing.
- I used to fantasize Mark Spitz would come and take me from my family and be my daddy/lover. I have never told anyone this...gah, how embarrassing.
- Dr. J
and most of all....
- Doug Flutie.
- Vladimir Yaschenko. I was a high-jumper.
- Agree with your post R69. Agassi also had to overcome the emotional abuse his dad/coach put him through when he was young. Dad was a former Olympian in Iran and expected perfection. Agassi's sister married young (to a retired tennis pro)to get away from dad. Agassi finally cut off most contact in his mid 20's.
Another favorite of mine: Todd Marinovich, QB of USC. Was a cute guy, before the heroin. Like Agassi, Todd had an over invested father that refused to let Todd do what he loved most (art).
- Lest you scoff at Yashchenko's straddle style, his 1978 record of 2.35 meters in the high j ump would have won silver at the London Olympics in 2012. The world record set in 1993 is only 2.45 meters. So the Fosbury flop, performance enhancing drugs, and 35 years of advancing sports knowledge have only moved the record up 0.1 meter, or 4 inches. Plus he was beautiful.
- Dwight Evans
Cal Ripken Jr
Laser and Turbo from American Gladiators
- Todd Marinovich? I guess there's a lid for every pot.
- I had a boy boner for Willie Gault.
- R80, he had a hot body
- Not really an athlete, but in was really drawn to George Willig, who climbed the World Trade Center in 1977. I think he was featured on ACB's Wide World of Sports, and he might have competed on ABC's The Superstars.
- Cris Collinsworth wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals.
- George Motherfucking Brett
And also Tim, Jeff, Brian, Jimmy, Nick, Devin, etc.
- Jim Thorpe. The cheekbones!
- Mark gastineau. Face wasn't much, but that body!
- You said it R86. Porneriffic.
- Dave Kopay and Joe Namath.
- Tom Daley. Squee!
- You had a crush on Tom Daley GROWING UP?!
- I have never crushed on an athlete. Most of them aren't that good-looking, and while I enjoy a toned body, I've never wanted a man who resembled overstuffed furniture.
- Yes, R90. He's BAE and adorbz.
- Bucky Dent
- Mickey Mantle
- Cal Ripken Jr. Those eyes...
- ...and that ass...
- [quote]I remember when he won the Wimbledon in 1992 after years of always losing in the Grand Slams. After the game I had to go to my room and cry in secret
And Andre went to his room and snorted some.
- I had a crush on Steve Garvey in the mid to late '70s even though I was/am a Giants fan.
What a mess his personal life was.
Garvey, known as "Mr. Clean," seemingly had a "clean" personal life during his early playing days. Manager Tommy Lasorda once commented, "If he ever came to date my daughter, I'd lock the door and not let him out." In the mid to late-1980s, however, Garvey engaged in a series of over-lapping relationships.
At the age of 22, Garvey married Cynthia Truhan." They married in 1971. They had two children, Krisha and Whitney. Cynthia left Garvey for famed composer Marvin Hamlisch. (Cyndy would later claim Garvey "gave me away" to Hamlisch after a private two-hour conversation.). Garvey was already romantically involved with his secretary. The couple divorced in 1983.
Garvey discovered in July 1988 that Cheryl Moulton was pregnant with his child, Ashleigh, a pregnancy Garvey subsequently claimed was intentional on Moulton's part, but without his "consent."
Although Moulton was pregnant with his child, Garvey proposed to Rebecka Mendenhall, who was unaware of Moulton, in November 1988. Garvey and Mendenhall had been in a relationship since August of 1986. He claimed to have asked her to become engaged because of what he termed her "ultimatum" to move on.
In January 1989, Garvey also became engaged to Candace Thomas, whom he met at a benefit for the Special Olympics. He broke the engagement with Mendenhall in a phone call the night of January 23rd, within hours after learning she was pregnant. Their only child, Slade, was born October 13, 1989.
Over the next few weeks, Garvey and Candace Thomas began a whirlwind courtship that included trips to the inauguration of President George H.W. Bush and the Super Bowl.
When these details became public, Garvey's post-baseball political ambitions were widely seen to have disappeared under the weight of two illegitimate children. Garvey, in the midst of what he later termed a "midlife disaster," sued Cyndy, his ex-wife, for access to his two children. His daughters testified in court they did not love their father and did not wish to see him. (Cyndy was handcuffed and jailed, based on 167 counts of contempt.) Under the shadow of multiple lawsuits and damage to his reputation, Garvey lost business opportunities, declared himself broke, and found himself paying half his monthly television earnings in child support, and millions in legal fees. He and Candace Thomas married in February 1989, and had three children, Ryan, Olivia, and Sean. The Garveys remain married almost 25 years and still reside in Southern California.
- Oh my gawd.
[quote]Gastineau has said he has become a changed person and put his turbulent past behind him. Shortly after his release from prison in 2001, he claimed to have a religious conversion to faith in Jesus Christ. Gastineau has appeared on programs such as The 700 Club to speak of his experience.
