Daniela Pestova, openly gay player? two pound week, big dick

My favourite swimsuit model ever Daniela Pestova (who coincidentally is Czech) made the cover of Shape magazine! So she takes over the girlcrush icon keyword from Petra Nemcova. :P

I read ancient THNs when I'm on the elliptical trainer, and there was an interesting bit in the editorial (May 4, 2004):

The overtone in the Danton case is homosexuality, though several people close to Danton have denied he is gay. Either way, the door was opened on the issue and the question was raised: what would the reaction in the hockey community be towards an openly gay player?

It's a question worth asking since it's a statistical probability there are several closeted players in the NHL.

When the Danton story became public, three of his Blues teammates--Doug Weight, Chris Pronger and Bryce Salvador--suggested they'd be comfortable with a homosexual teammate. We're inclined to believe they're among the majority.

Certainly, it would take a man with the elements most admired in NHLers--courage, grit, determination and heart--to come "out". He'd be the object of ridicule among small-minded fans and would probably take a verbal beating from some opponents on the ice. If some players have no aversion to resorting to racism as part of their trash talk, they're not going to think twice about wearing their homophobia on their sleeves. And to be sure, some teammates may be uncomfortable in the beginning.

But we believe, in general terms, today's players are more cosmopolitan and accepting than their predecessors. Barriers have eroded in society and professional hockey players aren't immune to the values of the world around them. Dressing room humor still exists, but that's bound to be the case wherever groups of men regularly congregate. It's not a sign of intolerance, more of peer pressure and cheap laughs.

Hopefully, a fear of being "outed" wasn't at the core of Danton's descent into hell. We may never know, which, in itself, is a sad reflection.


In response to my weekend of debauchery, I've decided to make this a two pound week.

I'd like to believe that's true, but there are still an awful lot of small town Canadian prairie farm boys in the NHL. I dunno.

I would think that it might be awkward for a little while, but the guys would get used to it after a while?

Or convert! Bwahahaha!

I think Dougie would be VERY comfortable with a homosexual teammate. Muaha.

As long as his name is Bill Guerin? *grin*

Man, the thought of players being able to be comfortably, openly gay someday soon just made my heart grow three sizes. And I think for the most part that article's probably right. Hockey players are good people, dammit.

It is a very pleasant thought. :) Actually, gay hockey players by themselves (or with each other!) are a pleasant thought...

My what a mighty big dick you have.

I love that Weight is cool with homosexuality considering his boyfriend Guerin is such a homophobe.

He's a homophobe, but he's a homosexual too! Har!

I'm so amused that you read the old issues of THN waaaaay after they're no longer current!

And my oh my, what a large hooha you have!

They just piled up on me! Like, I'd always read the Sharks stuff when it came, but that was it.

*waggles eyebrow*

:O

Psst.

Wanna have a sword fight?

Erm... Uh... :panics:

Same to you!

man bigger than me!

I think most people, even praire farm boys are more comfortable with gay people when it is "X who is my friend" than gay people in general.

Yeah, that's true, because then it's an actual person.

*hugs Mikey*

I've stayed so far away from that issue just because I met him... *shrugs* Mikey needed (needs) help... locking him up isn't going to do him any good.

*offers jumbo condoms from spencers*

Eep, that must be weird. :( I think there's a pretty good chance he'll get help of some kind. He sounds really unstable.

*grin* Thanks! :P

And... my fake!marek beats you out... *gasp*
