Jimmy Conrad Vies for Megan Rapinoe’s BFF Attention


KickTV keeps churning out the great videos, including bringing Jimmy Conrad’s American Soccer Spectacular from the podcast world to YouTube.

In the latest installment, Jimmy headed to the US Women’s National Team friendly in Connecticut to win Megan Rapinoe’s heart as his BFF.

This isn’t the first time Jimmy has tried to steal Megan’s BFF status away from Lori Lindsey. He displayed this sexy, sexy look during the team’s Olympics run in August.

The gay4soccer 2012 End of the Season Superlatives


gay4soccer superlativesIt’s nearly playoffs time for Major League Soccer, and nominations for the various end of the season awards from the league are beginning to be revealed. But here at gay4soccer we don’t want to look at the traditional best players at each position, and other best of awards the league gives out officially.

We want to know who has the best butt in American soccer (among other things) in true yearbook senior superlative style.

Nominations can be from anywhere in North American soccer: Major League Soccer and other leagues, or men’s and women’s national teams.

And while there is plenty of silliness in our list, at the top is our first ever Ally of the Year Award.

So help us out in the next week by nominating your favorite players for awards. You can nominate in as few or as many categories as you’d like, and can even do the form twice if you have multiple ideas for one category. As we go through nominations, voting, and revealing the winners, we hope this is a fun process for everyone.

Thanks in advance for your help!

The nominations process is now closed. Voting will commence Monday, October 29.

Ally Week 2012: The Timbers Army


Ally WeekIt’s Spirit Day, the final day of Ally Week 2012 where allies wear purple to show support of bullied LGBT youth.

We wrap up Ally Week with some thoughts from the Timbers Army, the supporters group for MLS’ Portland Timbers:

Timbers Army PrideThe Timbers Army is an open and accepting group to everyone no matter race, height, weight, hair color or sexual orientation. People are people and we believe in accepting people how they are with no preconditions. The diversity in the Timbers Army helped shape and form what the Timbers Army is today. We believe every person worldwide should be guaranteed the same rights as everyone else. We believe in embracing the differences in everyone. If you’re different then quite literally so the fuck what? Everyone is a valuable person and should be guaranteed equal rights as guaranteed under the Constitution. The Timbers Army does not believe that diversity is a bad thing. We accept everyone and embrace everyone.

Discrimination is not right and in 2012 it is a relic of a bygone era. Discrimination and homophobia have no place in 2012 and from here on out. We are allies of the LGBT cause because we love our friends and family who identify as LGBT. We embrace them as family because that’s what they are. We love everyone no matter what. Nothing makes us feel better than reassuring anyone in the game of supporting their club or playing for their club that their sexual orientation literally means fuck all to us. We care about the person and love the person. What we don’t accept is hatred and intolerance, or people who promote them. Zero tolerance for intolerance.
