Basketball Fun With The Frat Type

I'm a rare gay that both loves sports and excels at them. Today, I went to my local park and played some pick up games with a few college aged straight guys. Naturally, my team won each game.

Afterwards, we were all sitting around chatting. They were commenting on my balling skills, asking me if I played in college, etc. I let them know I was gay. One of the guys said, "I just got destroyed by a gay guy." I responded, "you wouldn't be first straight guy that said to me." We laughed; it was just typical banter that always happens after a game.

Then we exchanged numbers for more pickup games later. Right. I know what those guys really want. Well, at least one of them. Haha

I am telling you, sports is an awesome way to meet guys. I would encourage more gays to participate.

How nice for you, OP.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 106/06/2012

Wow you are such a man, OP. I don't know how you even lay down to sleep when your enormous testosterone-stuffed nuts must be entirely impossible to navigate.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 206/06/2012

Oddly enough, I just had a married guy comment on my " balling skills" this morning. Must be something in the air today.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 306/06/2012

this. never. happened.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 406/06/2012

You're right, OP. Sports is such an aphrodisiac! The NBA playoffs are like a gay Victoria's Secret fashion show. Tony Parker is so hot it's ridiculous. And so is Lebron. Balling! It's what's for dinner.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 506/06/2012

I don't even care if your story is true, because it's completely boring and so are you.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 606/06/2012

I don't believe you, but I'll humor you.

How exactly did you being gay come up? Did you just blurt it out? In typical banter, most people don't tell everyone their sexual orientation.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 706/06/2012

I am rather boring. I agree. And, no I don't think playing sports equates to being incredibly masculine. It's just something I enjoy and, over the years, has been an interesting, unexpected way to meet guys that you don't normally see at gay bars or gay events.

It came up because the park we played ball in is near a gay part of town. These guys were basically commenting on how the park, despite having a great court, was usually empty. I said "gays don't normally play a lot of pickup ball..." the rest is self-explanatory.

The only reason I bring it up is because so many gay guys have an aversion to sports and it's too bad.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 806/06/2012

Some guys don't get taken for gay and they develop a proactive stance in order to stem potential insults should their ballers turn out to be neanderthals later on.

I remember having a gay chip on my shoulder once. Someone was trying to sell me something and said it would be nice for my girlfriend or wife. I said "I'm gay and I have a lover!"

[quote]I'm a rare gay that both loves sports and excels at them.

You are rather fond of yourself, OP. Or very naive.

So, you interacted with hetero males in their milieu for a short time. How extraordinary! And you have hopes of starting up some form of more intimate connection. Be sure to let us know how it goes.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 1406/07/2012

Call me crazy, but isn't the straight guy that wants to get it on with you actually a gay guy? Or are you actually a woman? Straight guys don't sleep with men. Gay guys or "bi" guys do.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 1506/07/2012

Cool straight guys can be fun

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 1606/07/2012

then...let me guess...you spent the MOST fabulous day strolling around Manhattan...perused the bins at the Strand Bookstore, got your sugar fix at Magnolia Bakery, took in a matinee (full price at the box office, no TKTS line for you!!), early supper at some Chelsea boite, stocked up on some Kiehl's products at Barney's Co-op then retired early to save up the strength for tomorrow's pick-up game.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 1706/07/2012

OP, your notion that gay dudes are not into sports is erroneous and offensive. Your ignorance is horrible.

What a seamless way to work your sexuality into a conversation with a bunch of men you were lusting after. You should rewrite exposition down at Paramount.

This story seems quite self-aggrandizing. I'd love to hear the flipside review from the point-of-view of the straight boys. I'm sure they thought you were a lustful tryhard.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 2710/19/2012

this is nothing but a est, designed to taunt our basketball playing lesbian sisters while appealing to the mysnagist innerhatried of most gaylings. F&F this vial poster.

Regrettably, the other players subsequently declined the OP's offer to make hand-crocheted jerseys for them.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 3010/20/2012

Now that they know OP, watch your back when you give one of the guys one of those "congratulatory swats on the ass". You don't seem to understand, OP, that it isn't necessarily an aversion to sports per se but what many gay kids went through in PE/gym class not only from others in class but in many cases from the teacher as well that scarred and turned many off from sports for life. I am one of them. I don't mind doing yoga because in that form of exercise one isn't out to impress anyone else with how butch they are.

Knowing how you feel about it OP why don't you conduct a one man crusade to get us "girlie-men" to join you in your he-man exploits? I'll do it on one condition, that I get to paddle YOUR ass for all the times I had to put up with being bullied in gym class or paddled by the teacher. What I'm trying to say to you is that for many who do have what you call an aversion to sports, there is more to it than just that, besides the fact that basketball, baseball, football, etc. etc. etc. are BORING AS HELL. Besides, I don't have to justify my indifference to sports any more than you do your affinity for them; I'm not on trial here......

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 3110/20/2012

Unsurprising responses from a bunch of girly men. I believe your story, OP, and am interested in hearing updates.

R2 and R17 are not nearly as funny as they think they are. It's odd that a post like this attracts ridicule while the little queen who had a great brunch several months back and bragged about how great his day was received nothing but sincere "tell me more" replies and kudos.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 3210/20/2012

R31 is certainly posting like he is on trial. He is also proving the OP's point. Love your post r32! I would also like to hear updates from OP.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 3310/21/2012

So glad you could sort it out in such a hurry for all the "girlie men" r32 and r33, what would we do without you? I guess it's "all the he-men together" on this one...it just makes me all quivery and femme!!!!

What is the great sin in kicking a fucking basketball? Someone I once knew told me the teacher caught him doing it and gave him swats with the paddle plus took him to the principal's office where he also gave him swats.

Says the OP as if he had just discovered radium.

In New York alone there are over 50 gay sports organizations.

Saying that gays are averse to sports is no different than declaring stating most of us florists and hairdressers. And where does that leave lesbians?

And did you ever hear of the Gay Games? In 1994 (when I participated) we filled up Yankee Stadium.

OP you're not a "rare" gay guy that follows sports and plays them well. I'm also heavy into sports and was a star player on my highschool baseball team. But don't feel the need to mention all the time like I'm someone special and somehow better than those "queeny" gays

By the way I'm also an acclomplished cock sucker and rimmer and am versatile!

And once again STRAIGHT GUYS DO NOT HOOK UP WITH GAY GUYS, no matter how good looking or masculine you think you are.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 4505/01/2013

I'm the OP of this thread. Who in the hell bumped it? I forgot how much I loved the bitchy retorts! Well done DL!

Yes, I hooked up with the guy. It was okay. He was a bit too nervous about it.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 4605/01/2013

R46 that's funny because I trolldared you and #46 didn't match up with the OP.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 4705/01/2013

Don't reply to that OP. Let the tiresome trolldar troll at R47 think that he knows what he's doing.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 4805/01/2013

The sex was boring because we're both tiny meat bottoms and bumpin' pussies gets tiresome after a while.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 4905/01/2013

R47, trolldar doesn't work across long periods of time.

Most people have internet access through cable or DSL providers... and used "Leased IPs", which means they tend to have the same IP address, but it will change every so often. It's utterly transparent to the user, but it means that troll-dar (which is based on IP address) will suddenly be wrong.

Not only can the OP and a 6-month-later reply from the same person on the same computer not "match up" according to trolldar, but it's also possible that someone else has been assigned the old IP address, so two messages might "match up" even though they're from two different people on two different computers.

Also, since it goes by IP address, the same poster on two different computers will show up as not "matching up".

Don't get over-reliant on trolldar. It's only accurate over short periods of time. Hours or days, weeks at most. After that, it gets less and less reliable. After six months? It's unlikely to be accurate.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 5005/01/2013

R50 there is still no way in hell this whole thing ever happened, especially the part were he claims to have hooked up with one of the straight guys.

I think he saw a gay porno with "straight" guys playing basketball and he confuses fiction and reality.

And what's what gay guys always fantasing over straights? They're straight you're gay, you can be cool and hang together, but nothing will ever happen.

As a proud, openly gay man I'm embarrassed when deluded gays blatantly hit on guys they know are straight.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 5105/01/2013

You guys are funny. Yes, I started the thread. Yes, it happened. It's really not that big of a deal. I wasn't "blatantly" hitting on a straight guy, R51. It was a mutual thing. He gave me his number. I hit on hot guys, gay or straight. If they are into it, I pursue it. Sue me.

[quote]As a proud, openly gay man I'm embarrassed when deluded gays blatantly hit on guys they know are straight.

As a troll-dar troll you should have been too embarrassed to show up here again to further display your ignorance.

[quote]there is still no way in hell this whole thing ever happened,

Just because you can't even get a gay person into bed, you just WANT your version to be true. It's amazing how many people are too stupid to know that straight men sometimes wonder what it's like to get in bed with a gay man and will try it one time. They'll do it with a man who acts like an intelligent man, so that's obviously why R51 will never have that experience.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 5305/02/2013

R53 I'm in my early 30s now but back in my college days I did fool around with 2 guys who claimed they were straigt

Did I think they were straight, no because any guy who fools around with another guy is at least bi.

I would never fool around with another "straight" guy again because I have to much respect for myself and unlike most deluded gay men I don't view straight guys as some ridiculous prize and I am actually attracted to gay men. What a concept! A gay man who likes other gay men and respects the sexuality of men who are straight

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 5405/02/2013

[quote]any guy who fools around with another guy is at least bi.

Yes, and any man who identifies as totally gay but tried a female one time when he was 18, about 30 years ago, is bi in your book. We all have a great deal of respect for your enlightened views.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 5505/02/2013

R55 that's different because a guy hooking up with a girl and trying to be straight is still considered the "norm".

While a guy doing anything with another guy is really looked down upon in society as gross or weird or unnatural

Most straight guys I know won't even comment on whether another man is attractive or not, it's still taboo.

So even if a "straight" guy is curious, which at least makes him bi in my book, they most likely would never act on it due to how society looks down on it.

And again why would a proud openly gay man even consider or try to hook up with a straight guy? There is a such thing as pride and self respect not to mention a whole lot of openly gay or bi guys to choose from.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 5605/02/2013

[R45], pussy doesn't repulse me.

I have a suspicion that most people have 'bisexual' potential, whether they realize that potential or not(and plenty of people don't), or whether they think they do or not. I'll give everyone an out by saying most people, instead of everyone. Though I do think most people 'major' in one or the other, and don't feel 'the same' way about both genders.

Having said all that, the original story is still boring.

by I know no one here will believe me, but whatever...reply 8512/11/2013

r85. I think the point is that guys who play basketball are hot, athletic, and masculine. Dudes looking for sex in a bathroom are not, and likely have STDs. I don't engage in hookups of any type, but I think that is why people find dudes playing basketball hotter than sleazy men prowling in a restroom.
