A lot has happened in the last few months.
A soccer player in Europe, Anton Hysén, came out of the closet. When I first read about it on Outsports I was surprised.
He is the equivalent of a minor league baseball player coming out of the closet in the European soccer system.
I think the guy has some balls on him. Anton felt as though he could be openly gay in the locker room and in the public eye and not have it affect his paycheck.
Everyone's different. Time's are different. I have a handful of friends that know I'm gay No one in my family know's and I'm ok with that right now. I received several e-mails after this happened asking me about my thoughts on it and if I would be revealing myself since there is now an openly gay soccer player.
The answer is still no. I wrote almost 2 years ago (fuck, 2 years?! Really?) how I would not be the gay trailblazer in baseball. I didn't want the attention as a player. Now, that I am not playing but still in the professional baseball world I don't want my sexuality to be a topic of conversation behind my back or prevent me from a raise or promotion.
Am I being paranoid in a world that is becoming more open and accepting to gay's... perhaps. It's just my comfort level right now.
While I am not playing right now I am still involved in baseball. My new career path (post injury) has me traveling the U.S. which is pretty awesome. I still get to hang in the clubhouse, take batting practice every so often and I get to interact with some incredibly hot and good looking baseball players.
Now you would think that I would be catching a guys eye, shooting him a wink and then plowing him in the locker room after every one has gone home only to have the hot coach walk in and both teach us a lesson.
It couldn't be farther from the truth. When I'm in that environment I try and take some mental pictures for myself to use later on when I'm home.
Who I've been fucking
Right before Christmas I met this guy while out with friends. It was kind of in passing through random friends of mine from college. We exchanged phone numbers and started texting each other. We talked about the end of football season, college basketball and our hatred for Kobe Bryant.
On New Years Eve, Reid shot me a text asking what I was up too. I had been out with friends and made my way back to my place and was cruising Adam4Adam for a New Years hook up. I told him he should come over for some beers. He was at my place about 20 minutes later.
Our texts had been really flirty over the last few weeks. Talking about how sexually frustrating the holidays are with being around family and a terrible winter. We sat on the couch and just started talking with the TV playing in the background.
I was so nervous with him in front of me. I just wanted to jump on top of him, rip his clothes off and go to town on him. Then it happened.
He casually touched my knee while talking to me. A few minutes later while I did the same but a little bit higher on his thigh.
He stopped mid-sentence and smiled at me.
It's that moment where you don't know which way the situation is going to go. Well, I decided to take the initiative and lean in. I thought it was going to be some slow-motion make out where we take our time or have him yell, "I AINT NO FAGGOT!". He grabbed the back of my head and pulled me in for a long kiss.
There are times when I am hooking up with a guy where I don't want to kiss and I just wanna get my dick out, fuck and be done with it. Reid and I just made out for what seemed like hours. Grinding on each other, licking my neck grabbing me all over my body.
I could feel his raging hard on in his pants.
We ended up in my bedroom ripping our clothes off. We didn't take our time and hang out in our boxer briefs... we just got completely naked and kept going at it.
That night we fucked for hours. The sun started to come up as I blasted my load on his chest.
It was a fantastic night and a fantastic next afternoon when I woke up next to him. I have plenty more stories to tell you about Reid.
Let me know if you like the detail in the story. I can get dirtier and give you guys some more details in my next post.
