Thanks a lot for that list, [R75]. Being that I'm a big sports fan, and I know a few gay professional athletes myself who haven't yet been named (who I really don't feel like outing here because I have friends who personally know them, so it'd be easy for it to get back to me), finding out the who's who of gays in sports has always fascinated me more than anything in Hollywood. You've also confirmed a few that I only had hearsay knowledge of, which is nice.

By the way, if it wouldn't be too pressing, do you know any actual stories on any of those on your list? I'm honestly most interested in the NFL players--Aikman and Young, in particular.

And on Jeff Garcia, does his wife know that he's gay? I just ask because Carmella is one of the most beautiful women I've seen, and I know for a fact that she used to be a slut before she married him (for money/fame purposes, I've always assumed), so if he is stepping out with other men, I'm sure she is, too.

My ex bf made out with George Brett, former 3rd baseman for the KC Royals, in the bathroom at a party. This was 30 years ago when he was still an active player. We'd been together a little over a year at the time when he finally told me, and his best friend, who was also at the party, confirmed it. There were people waiting to get in the bathroom so they never got past the kissing and crotch grabbing stage, and they never exchanged numbers to hook up later.

R103 and R108, the Daley Thompson t-shirt was about Carl Lewis.

From the Guardian article: He had already appeared for the medal ceremony with a slogan on his T-shirt castigating the host broadcaster's obsession with US athletes but at the winner's press conference he turned up with a different one which said: "Is the world's 2nd greatest athlete gay?" Rumours about Carl Lewis's sexuality had been rife during the Games and Thompson's dig, playing to the gallery of the US tabloids, was crass and no one bought his excuse: "In England gay just means happy."

Brian Mullen, retired hockey, player is gay. He wanted to go into coaching earlier but had to do front office work for the NHL No one would hire him as a coach, it's an open secret. He might have been one reason the NHL has jumped ahead in the fight against homophobia.

Of course Coach Brendan Burke has led the way against homophobia in the NHL. He serves his props, but he is straight, so off topic.

It's about time there's more for the most homophobic sport of em all: football/soccer. Here's hoping Saint Robbie Rogers has opened the floodgates.

It helps of course if you're incredibly good looking like him which opens up all sorts of opportunities. Just on Google just now it says he has a new fashion line. For the younger generation this is much less of a big deal, so hopefully more will follow.

R192, Saint Robbie only came out when he decided his career was effectively over, pretty much like every sportsperson before him. The only professional footballers that came out at the height of their careers were Justin Fashanu (suicide) and Anton Hysén, who plays for a minor team in Sweden.

L.A. threw him a lifeline, but he would never have come out if his career had taken off in England. I cannot see anyone following him. Even if you could win over the fans, the press would on your back the whole time for soundbites over any tangentially gay topic as a 'role model' to aspiring gay footballers. You would never be able to concentrate on your football career and managers would not appreciate the distraction.

As for Robbie Rogers, he was with 2nd and 3rd division sides in England but even then he didn't consider the the atmosphere conducive enough to come out. I don't expect we'll ever see an openly gay in the Premier League, La Liga, The Bundesliga or Serie A; especially considering what happened to Justin Fashanu.

Blind item about Michael Strahan. Found this at the blind item website:

It’s no secret that this 41-year-old national morning talk show host is a former NFL player, but what you may not know is his beard lives in the Bel Air home he bought — while our blind item is secretly shacking up with with his ‘Celebrity Fitness Club’ BFF [Dr. Ian Smith] in a New York City condo. Sources say our blind item’s ‘Hollywood Exes’ beard is no stranger to his bromance lifestyle. Know why? Because she’s doing nothing different from when she shared ex-hubby Eddie Murphy with Johnny Gill. Don’t believe me.. Just ask our mystery man’s ex-wife, Jean Muggli. You may recall Muggli spilled the beans during their divorce, back in 2006 — telling how he cheated with another man, while they were married.

Since coming out three months ago, Jason Collins is receiving more attention than he ever has during his 12-year journeyman NBA career. Jason Collins Photo by The Associated Press, 2012

Jason Collins Photo by The Associated Press, 2012

Recently he graced the cover of Sports Illustrated and appeared on the “Today Show.” And last week he shared the stage at MTV’s Video Music Awards with Seattle rap artists Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

However, Collins told a gathering at the A Plus Principles to Live By gala Wednesday that he wasn’t seeking fame or publicity.

“When you’re in the closet you’re telling yourself a lie day in and day out to the point that you start to believe it, but deep down you know it’s not true,” he said. “Once I told my family and my friends – I was one of the lucky ones and everyone supported me – it became a no-brainer as far as it’s time.

“It’s time for me. … It’s time for someone to step forward.”

Collins was the keynote speaker at the downtown fundraiser, which included former NFL player Wade Davis and photojournalist Robin Layton, who also spoke about being gay.

“Just to be free to exist in the world as my authentic self is something that I had never experienced,” said Wade, an undrafted cornerback out of Weber State in 2000 who had stints with the NFL’s Seahawks (2001), Tennessee Titans (2000 and ’02) and Washington Redskins (2003).

Wade, who never made it on a 53-man roster, announced he was gay last year, nine years after he retired. He laughed Wednesday when recounting the things he did to keep his sexuality private.

“I remember watching film when I was playing for the Redskins and thinking, ‘wow you’re running gay, or your standing gay,’” he said. “Imagine policing yourself to the point of every action and everything that you do, you’re scrutinizing it.

“It was harder for me to exist in the closet than it was to come out.”

Wade admitted he couldn’t have come out while he was playing and described Collins as a “pioneer who’s doing things right now that’s blazing a path for others to follow.”

Last month, WWE star Darren Young said he was inspired by Collins to announce that he was gay.

Former NBA player John Amaechi, who announced he was gay in 2007, four years after his retirement, told Collins his life would change if he came out.

“He said, ‘Jason going forward, people aren’t going to recognize you as the pro’s pro,’” Collins recalled. “’Your teammates and the people who truly know you will, but to the rest of the world you’re going to be the gay athlete.

“And you have to have strength. Find a way to embrace that identity, but at the same time that identity doesn’t define you.’”

Collins told the audience that included NBA player Jamal Crawford and A Plus’ student-athletes about the traits he used to rise from a Los Angeles prep school and become a star at Stanford who was taken 18th overall in the 2001 draft.

Telling his parents about his sexuality was one of the most difficult things Collins ever had to do.

“My mom refers to it as letting go of the dream,” he said.

Collins also talked about the unexpected benefits to coming out.

“The coolest thing … it’s when I got the call from President Obama,” he said, laughing. “Now I get to tell all of my gay friends: ‘When you came out, did you get the call from the President too?’”

Still with training camps opening next month, Collins is waiting for a call from NBA executives.

The 7-foot free agent played in just 38 games last season while playing with the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards. He averaged 1.6 rebounds and 1.1 points.

Admittedly, Collins has never been a superstar in the NBA and never averaged more than 6.4 points and 6.1 rebounds during a season.

“I’ve always had that reputation of being a pro’s pro, a great locker room guy and a great teammate,” Collins said. “That’s an identity that I formed and that’s an identity that I worked for and I’m so proud of.

“I don’t care if I score a single basket. I care about winning basketball games. There’s no better feeling for me than playing with a great player like Jamal and setting a great pick like blindsiding whoever is guarding him. Knocking him on his butt so Jamal can go out there and score baskets. That’s what I’ve done my whole career and that’s what I hope to continue to do in this upcoming season.”

Aaron Rodgers' brother, Jordon, came out against gay people joining some fraternity (I think?) at Vanderbilt. There were rules that stated because homosexuality went against religion they were not to join this Christian group. Or, something to that effect.

Aaron said nothing publicly. I think when people, gay or straight, say nothing when a group of people are marginalized, that really says a lot about their character. But, people who try to be good Christians, that usually says they have some evil lingering inside of them, so his silence doesn't surprise me.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kordell Stewart says he's not gay. Stewart, who faced gay rumors for years with the Steelers in the 1990s, was responding to a promo clip for Bravo's "Real Housewives of Atlanta," where his estranged wife Porsha is a cast member.

"Kordell didn't necessarily want me physically, and that made me wonder what does he want," Porsha Stewart, 31, said in the clip. This prompted Stewart, 40, to say Porsha was creating news to get attention and he issued a statement:

"I'm very ashamed of my wife for saying something that she knows is not true at all. The rumors have never been true. I'm not gay," he said. "It is sad that she would target the homosexual community which often times lacks support to begin with."

Less than a year ago, Porsha was signing a different tune about Kordell:

"One thing I do know is that my husband loves me and he puts it down and I will be with him forever," she said in a December interview on Power 105.1. "And you know what? He's more man to me than I have ever met. So for me gay is just out of the window."

The rumors about Stewart being gay were so rampant in Pittsburgh in the late 1990s, that Stewart stood up in front of the team to deny them. He also met with then coach Bill Cowher and team president Dan Rooney.

Since retiring, Stewart has had several media jobs, including ESPN, and is a radio host in Atlanta.

Kordell Stewart is such a shitstain for making antigay comments on twitter. It's one thing to be in the closet - many sports figures are, because its so hard for them to be out - but another to insult gays. His life is a lie. Even though he's an ass I feel sorry for him because he will never be able to live an honest life or accept himself.

The comment about him being "more man than I have ever met" sounds like it came from a PR person. I think one of Ricky Martin's beards said the same thing about him years before he came out.

Why did Aaron embrace Kevin after he won the Super Bowl? Why do they wear matching suits to award ceremonies? Why does Kevin no longer for him and is now living back in Cali? Why were there tweets about "ending relationships" and "people taking their costumes off after Halloween"? Was Aaron his boyfriend?

I think these are viable questions. Since these professional athletes are not going to willfully come out like they should, because it's the honest and right thing to do, ( I mean, they are "leaders" aren't they?) then this website might as well get the ball rolling with "who are these male roommates?"

For some reason, I don't believe those polls, R321. You can't rely on polls either. Nobody in the NHL has come out in the history of the sport so the culture must prohibit something like this from happening.

I tend to believe that the administration is far worse than the NFL even.

Now, I live in a hockey state and I can assure you, the most homophobic people I have encountered were actually hockey players. Could be a coincidence...But, I don't know the business side of the league, which may prove as to why gay hockey players remain closeted for life or, never publically come out.

NHL Players Support Gay Marriage A Lot More Than The Rest Of The Sports World

According to this survey that recently popped up on reddit, NHL players are vastly in favor of gay marriage. NFL players support gay marriage by a small majority, and MLB and NBA players are against it.

Cormack: MLB trails NHL on gay tolerance

By now, most of you are probably aware of Torii Hunter’s recent comments in the L.A. Times regarding his thoughts on the idea of having an openly gay athlete.

If not, here’s what he said in a Dec. 29 on the difficulties gay athletes still faced in 2012:

“For me, as a Christian … I will be uncomfortable because in all my teachings and all my learning, biblically, it’s not right,” said Hunter. “It will be difficult and uncomfortable.”

When the inevitable backlash arrived, Hunter quickly claimed on Twitter that his quotes had been misrepresented. For his part, the article’s author, Kevin Baxter stands by his reporting and says he has Hunter’s comments recorded.

Also quoted in that L.A. Times piece was Patrick Burke, co-founder of gay advocacy group You Can Play. Burke, you may recall, was scheduled to meet with Yunel Escobar in Toronto last summer after the Cuban shortstop had been suspended three games for writing a homophobic slur in Spanish on his eye black.

When reached by telephone Friday in Boston, Burke, son of Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke, told that he took a deep breath when he first learned of Hunter’s comments and that they were typical of what he hears from athletes.

“They (say) they have no problem with gay people, no issue with people being openly gay, but (they are) confused as to how they would react to having an openly gay teammate in their locker-room,” he said.

An awful lot of Christian athletes are confused about how they are supposed to react to gay teammates. Educate, educate, educate.

— Patrick Burke (@BurkieYCP) December 31, 2012

In Toronto, the Escobar incident was met with loud cries of outrage from some fans and members of the media. It was the biggest sports story in the city for days, if not an entire week.

In Detroit however, — where Hunter signed in the off-season as a free agent with the Tigers — his comments barely created a ripple. And until Jon Morosi’s column Friday on, the mainstream U.S. national baseball media had largely ignored it.

Burke says he hasn’t personally reached out to Hunter and is satisfied with the explanation the 37-year-old offered on Twitter.

But for other athletes, such as in Escobar’s case last summer, a more intensive course of action is required.

To that end Burke and Jose Estevez — a Spanish-speaking openly gay Boston College runner — flew to Toronto and met with Escobar for an hour and a half.

“You could tell — and I was mostly reading body language because my fourth grade Spanish wasn’t letting me keep up — but in the beginning I think Yunel started out a little defensive and kind of, ‘why am I here,’ but Jose’s got a very strong story and is a very sharp kid and an eloquent kid and he talked Yunel through the issues,” Burke recalled. “By the end of it, I think Yunel really was engaged in the conversation. I think he understood, I think he learned from it and at the end of it, they gave each other a big hug and wished each other the best.

“We have a really, really high success rate when you put us in front of athletes.”

Getting an audience with more baseball players before, not after, the next controversy is something Burke is keen to do. He says You Can Play has let Major League Baseball know they are available to conduct education seminars for the league as a whole or on a team-by-team basis.

He also says it’s too soon to pass judgment on how well MLB is addressing homophobia within the game.

“I’ll have a better answer for you in the coming months,” he said.

One thing Burke is certain of is that an active member in one of the four major North American sports leagues is going to come out soon, and it’s going to be a very big deal.

“I think everyone is looking forward to the day that that athlete is ready and willing to take that step,” Burke said. “I think it’s going to break down a lot of stereotypes and it’s going to give a lot of kids a role model. If you work in sports media, there are writers you can look up to. But if you’re a gay hockey player and you’re 15-years old in Toronto, there’s no one like you in that sense that you can look up to, that you can sit there and say, he did it so I can do it too. We need athletes who are willing to set that example and set that tone.”

When will it happen? Six months ago, Burke said it would happen within the next two years.

“So I guess we’re at a year and a half now,” he said, sticking by his earlier prediction.

And in Burke’s mind there’s no doubt which sport is best equipped to welcome that athlete.

“I know for a fact, hockey is more willing to embrace that player than any other sport,” he said, citing a 2006 Sports Illustrated survey in which 80 per cent of NHLers said they would be happy to support an openly gay teammate.

The other three major leagues polled between 52-61 per cent in the same survey, according to Burke.

“That was before my brother came out, that was before You Can Play launched. My guess is that number is anywhere from 95 to 100 per cent (in the NHL) now.”

Regardless of what number you think baseball is sitting at today, it appears tolerance for gay teammates is one area in which MLB should be working harder to catch up to their friends in the NHL.

Regardless of the homophobia in the AHL and other hockey leagues, I still think a hockey player will be the first athlete out of the big four sports to come out. And I believe it will be a young up-and-coming player before his NHL debut, rather than an established NHL veteran. Call me naive, but I think that's most likely and it seems that the hockey youth culture is getting more liberal, at least in North America. Just look at how comfortable young players are these days with talking about their bromances with teammates, flirting on twitter, etc. Hell, the goal celebrations and the general touchy-feelyness between the players is already a good sign. I am optimistic.

Myself included. I have yet to meet an American hockey player (young and old) who wasn't a Republican who didn't harbor some racist and anti-gay beliefs. Not all, of course, but this group of nice hockey players is a minority. This pro-gay idea, I think is jaded because the guys are white, "masculine", and have meaty thighs. All of which gay men, on this site at least, seem to lust after.

A good example would be that NC baseball player who twerked and then stated he only twerked for females and called gay men faggots. He also supports Chic Fil-a. That's the attitude you get. He is exactly like them.

It's very small town, but has money mentality, because hockey is expensive, and it's also very white. You can't have cultural views when you grow up in a very white, violence encouraged environment.

NHL players mostly vote Republican or Conservative (if they're Canadians), with a few vocal exceptions, like Andrew Ference and Scott Niedermayer (retired). The main reason they vote Republican is because they want to be taxed as little as possible. Most of these guys are not sophisticated enough to delve any further than that.

NHL players are drafted at 18 (sometimes 17), and the "star" players enter the NHL right away. They are lucky to finish high school, never mind college or university.

In Canada (I live in Edmonton), hockey is the predominant sport and there is a huge national audience for NHL games. My brother's son plays Bantam AAA hockey and the parents mostly have LOTS of money for travel costs, equipment and arena fees.

The culture of minor hockey in Alberta is depressing, in my opinion. There are a few aboriginal players in my nephew's league, but 90% of the kids are white. The families are conservative, anti-intellectual, anti-arts. Half of them secretly hope their kid is going to make it to the NHL. Of course the odds of that happening are very, very unlikely. I've heard parents at the arena yell "GET HIM!!", when their kid's team is checking an opponent.

There are no gay parents or players in my nephew's league. I am a complete anomaly at my nephew's games, and I think my brother is secretly embarrassed when I show up for games.

I don't understand how anyone can assert that hockey is a progressive sport. It is the only professional sport where guys can have a bare knuckle fist fight on the ice and not get kicked out of the game or suspended. The penalty is FIVE MINUTES FOR FIGHTING, and it is usually offset by the same penalty for the opposing player. So, neither team even has to play short handed.

R386 That's quite depressing. I was hoping it would be slightly more progressive in other parts of Canada. For example Toronto is more multicultural. I wonder if the attitudes are better there? Still, I hope European players bring more acceptance to the league.

Pavel Datsyuk and Ilya Kovalchuk (now playing in the KHL) have already said that they support Russia's anti-gay policies as the Sochi Olympics approach. At least Crosby (Canadian), Zetterberg (Swedish) and Karlsson (Swedish) have said publicly that they disagree with Russian laws.

You shouldn't even bother. I wouldn't. Just say you have prior engagements. You don't deserve to be treated like that for no reason. I'm sorry your own family treats you like that.

The NHL and (AHL, WHL, OHL, KHL, college hockey, etc.) is very much like the NFL with regards to homophobia. Many of these players would be in jail had it not be for hockey.

I attended a Big Ten school and the hockey players here were all assholes. Homophobic, country music loving red necks. Many of them, of course, don't know the difference between "your" or "you're". I don't get "why" gay people care about being accepted by these guys. It's like a black person desperate for acceptance from a Klansman.

At least they don't randomly use quotation marks.

Since more than 50% of NHL players come from Canada, your generalizations about the NHL based on your limited experience with hockey players at an American college are as ridiculous as your presumption that you know what gay people should care about. Just sit down.

When people say, this I'm not sure what to say. It's as though they know my experience and they need to insult me in the process.

I live in a hockey culture. I speak only from my perspective. They are Republican rednecks. They are assholes. Some get busted by police. (I should have used "some" instead of "many").

Why that's challenged by gay men who feel the need to protect these assholes and claim I'm bullshitting, I have no idea.

They remind of the gay people who defend the Duck Dynasty assholes. Homophobia really damages gay men.

Interestingly, I don't see this same urgency for black athletes who are homophobes and this *need* to defend them and call gay people "full of shit".

If you have nothing but love for hockey players and they are this wonderful, amazing (..and hot to you) people...good for you. I'm not going to say, "You're full of shit!" or "you have limited experience!" If, you grew up in a hockey culture and this wasn't your experience, good for you!

If your perspective is only what you read in the papers and polls about supposed gay rights support among hockey players, and you think this is the consensus around the league, good for you.

But, I don't have the same experience as you. Respect that or don't and move on.

But, really, keep your insults to yourself.

These athletes are lusted after on this site and when they react to the advances of gay men who go on and on and about, like they do on this site, it's hilarious to me.

The notion that hockey is a progressive sport. It's not. Or, it's not entirely. But, I suspect the need for it to be a progressive sport is sexual (white, hot, straight guys). When I read about homophobia in the NFL, the hate and racism towards them is hypocritical.

If this is true about Drew Brees, I wonder how much he tips him. Remember a couple of months ago it was on NATIONAL NEWS that he only tipped $3 at a California carryout! I never tip at carryout, incidentally.

by Anonymousreply 41612/21/2013

Regarding Drew Brees, there have been rumors since he started his professional career, but all indications are that he is straight. In college, he dated the same woman he eventually married. They now have three boys and live off season in San Diego.

The rumors started when Jeff Garcia, then quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers and the subject of much speculation that he was gay, and Brees, then quarterback for the San Diego Chargers, were playing at the same time for California teams. The rumor was that they supposedly had something going on a type of "commuter" relationship. For what it's worth, Garcia eventually married a Playboy model himself and now has two children.

The other rumor I heard was also from his time with the Chargers and was that he used to call gay phone sex lines although those who spoke to "Brees" said the person did not sound like him.

Finally, while not a gay rumor, Brees is supposedly the object of teasing regarding his supposedly so-called feminine attributes and style of play. He seems like a gentle, kind guy so perhaps this translates into "femininity" in the macho world of the NFL?

by Anonymousreply 41712/21/2013

re brees, nah what I have heard consistently every once in a while is he has someone, not an escort or random side pieces but a guy who he is in a relationship with who is content to live "on the side" so to speak. He has a condo bought by Brees, travels with the team and is there whenever Brees can be with him. I hear it crop up every once in a while an stated as matter of fact, but I usually brush it off. But I have heard it several times now and the story never changes which is weird because usually the rumors will vary.

Speaking of NFL - I head Brain Bosworth used to hire male escorts regularly and Howie Long like a lil man candy once in a while...that and his name fits. Rumor has it Howie is very long.

Interesting little tidbit: we have hundreds of openly gay women in sports here in Norway, but just ONE openly gay guy. It's effed up!

Lesbians are clearly more accepted in society. It's much easier for them to come out. It annoys me when lesbians say gay men are cowards for not coming out in their respective sports.. I'm like.. what the hell are you talking about? The homophobia in sports is ripe. Sports are macho by default, and gays, being seen as queeny and fem by the straight bigots, ruin that. They see gay men as a threat, and then there's the locker room issue too. Lesbians are more accepted, and lesbians don't really challenge the macho guy narrative if they come out. It's much, much, much harder for gays to come out than it is for lesbians.

Kane is a horrible alcoholic. If he were gay, it'd be all over the news by now. Hopefully, the league will quietly step in to help him if it hasn't already.

r478, is this a current or former player?

Poor Kane

by Anonymousreply 50905/31/2014

R508 Really? What kind of rumors does Toews have?

The theory I heard about Kane is that his alcoholism and off-season antics are a sign of a bigger problem - apparently he's closeted. Whether it's true or not, it has happened to athletes before (substance abuse and destructive behavior because they didn't know how to deal with being gay). From what I heard Kane also only hits on unavailable girls so that they would turn him down, but he would still get the reputation of being a womanizer.

by Anonymousreply 51006/01/2014

If that's true about Kane then it's really sad. Well, being an alcoholic for ANY reason is sad. I hope he gets some help.

TOEWS?! I'm all for hockey players being gay and if I was a betting man, my money is on Crosby and from what I'm hearing, it's true, but I've never heard anything about Toews. Ever.

Kane is out of control, though, that's true. Poor guy.

Chris Bosh is always in the middle of ‘meme’ jokes that make him appear unmanly so to speak.

The jokes apparently reached to the point of people questioning his sexuality.

“For a while, they were questioning my sexuality. They still do. They were questioning my sexuality, questioning my game. And I’m like, ‘Why are they all messing with me?’ I didn’t do anything to anybody. I didn’t do nothing. I just came here to play basketball. And they’re like, ‘Oh, he’s not a real superstar.’ I never cared about being a superstar.”

Bosh has a beautiful wife and two kids at home, but for some odd reason he’s become an easy target for social media.

r533, I would kill for decent gossip of the Tortorella years (or him in general).

Unfortunately, he's a beta male with an alpha mouth, but I have daddy issues and always found him hot as fuck.

There must be some NYC gays here who've dealt with the team in some capacity-servers, bartenders, PR, charity events, etc.

r510, Kane has been snapped drunk and out of control so many times, I think if he was gay it would've come out by now.

Having said that, it's not impossible. He probably can't even perform, he's so bad, so he doesn't bother hitting on anyone.

Oh, and a bonus incentive for anyone with NY Ranger or NHL gossip. This is not straight. I refuse to believe it.

R539 MDZ hit on my friend in a bar some years ago. She had no idea who he was at the time and said he seemed drunk and looked sweaty, he only follows porn stars and playboy models on twitter. If he would put more effort on the ice as he does trying to get laid he will be much further in the sport than he is now. He has become hanger-ons for dudes like Tyler Seguin, and most likely gets a shot at Seguin's seconds.

Claude Giroux (Flyers captain) got busted in Ottawa on Canada Day (1 July) for grabbing the ass of a cop. Repeatedly.

A male cop.

by Anonymousreply 55807/05/2014

r555, I saw that too. I'm not gonna lie, I teared up a little. Mary! I know. He's been in hospital since April.

Pavel Bure always had gay rumours around him, but he was also connected to the Russian mob, so no one said too much.

Odjick was Bure's enforcer, and they were great friends off-ice.

I never heard any rumours around Gino, but he was beloved in all arenas, so maybe people didn't say anything.
