For decade women’s gymnastics has been a shinning beacon of Olympic status for UNited states. As millions tune in to watch the glamour girl athletes in leotards perform the hardest sport in physical precision. When these U.S. women bring home a medal, these celebrity status goes through the roof.
However, this summer might be different. This could be the deepest U.S. men’s team since 1984, when a squad led byPeter Vidmar, Bart Conner, Tim Daggett and Mitch Gaylord won the team gold. And it could be one of the most memorable teams, as well, full of characters with compelling life stories.

The 21st Century Gay Icon | Kyle Marchand (PW)
In a rather yummy entry on Gay Icons, Wikipedia lists David Beckham alongside George Michael, Freddie Mercury and Ricky Martin as iconic gay dreamboats.
That would explain what occurred one Saturday in Valencia, Spain in 2007.
It was during a football game in 2007 when the cutest fanboy in all the world breached security, sprinted onto the athletic field and in his adorable big-eyed Iberian way, asked the David Beckham for the same thing anyone in their right mind would ask for, a big giant hug.
Of course, the Becks, somewhat astonished but not exactly surprised, gave the young fan one.
In exchange, the boy offered the shirt off his back and so it seems his pants as well. Lol.
But then, wouldn’t anyone?
European football fans have long gone crazy over David Beckham, and he quickly acquired a tremendous gay following in the stands all over the world, which only catapulted him when high editorial fashion magazines discovered him and he began to grass the covers in studly near-nude spreads.
When David Beckham first became known globally it came in the form of splashy tabloid celebrations , Adidas endorsements and Pepsi advertisements and his madly sexy spot for Gillette razors. The young Becks was just a teensy bit antsy about his full-on gay admirers back then.
Since then, the football star, fashion icon and dream lover has gotten over himself to embrace all those Beck Lovers out there.
Safely married and baby daddy to one of the all time greatest pop and fashion icons, Victoria Beckham, David works the gay crowds with the same beautiful-man nonchalance he shows to fluttering female hearts. He even markets his own scent to the gay demographic.
Thus in inclusion it is fitting that one of the few males, and even fewer heterosexual males, actually in the Gay Icon entry on Wikipedia, is David Beckham.
The really iconic personalities for gay men, as should surprise no one, are women, overwhelmingly so, as the entry documents. I suspect this is because a “gay icon” is never the hot sex partner to gay men but rather the dream versions and dream persona so many gay men wish for themselves. The “anima” which is the female side of a man’s mind can in its frequent articulation, actually for gay men, be the consistent projection of their own persona. Gay men utilize Madonna energy as their own and project it to the world. David Beckham’s metro-sexuality and soft masculinization allows many men to project Beckham outward and for many gay men they project him out but also wish they could project him inward as well.

While I’m not a big basketball fan, I am a fan of Magic Johnson! With that said, I am a baseball boy through and through and the Los Angeles Dodgers are my team! I am so hopeful for the new ownership of The Dodgertown franchise. Magic Johnson is the new Head of LA Dodger baseball.
The sale of one of baseball’s most storied franchises to a group that includes Lakers great Magic Johnson has been finalized, bringing Frank McCourt’s tenure as owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers to an end after a monthslong battle in bankruptcy court.
It came a day later than expected, but Guggenheim Baseball Management and the LA Dodgers announced the completion of the sale in a statement released this morning Tuesday May 1, 2012.
No objections to the proposed deal — a $2.15 billion offer from Guggenheim — were received by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court by the Friday deadline. The transaction officially transfers ownership of the team from McCourt to Guggenheim Baseball, a group led by Johnson, former Atlanta Braves President Stan Kasten and Guggenheim Partners Chief Executive Officer Mark Walter.
The sale, approved April 13 by a bankruptcy judge, was part of a bankruptcy reorganization plan. The team entered bankruptcy in June 2011, setting off a monthslong dispute with Major League Baseball in a Delaware courtroom.
“The Dodgers emerge from the Chapter 11 reorganization process having achieved its objective of maximizing the value of the Dodgers through a successful Plan of Reorganization, under which all claims will be paid,” according to a team statement. “The Dodgers move forward with confidence — in a strong financial position; as a premier Major League Baseball franchise; and as an integral part of and representative of the Los Angeles community.”
The Guggenheim group’s offer eclipses the $1.47 billion offered for England soccer club Manchester United in 2005. The current record for a baseball franchise is $845 million — the amount paid by the Ricketts family for the Chicago Cubs in 2009.
Although the deal marks an end to his ownership of the team, McCourt and “certain affiliates of the purchasers” would acquire the land surrounding Dodger Stadium, including its parking lots, for $150 million, according to the agreement.
The Dodgers were third in the NL West last season and fell short of 3 million in home attendance for the first time since the 1992 season, but the team is off to a hot start behind slugger Matt Kemp in 2012. Entering play Tuesday, LA was 3.5 games ahead of San Francisco in the NL West.
Lets GO DODGERS Lets Go!!!
