Out of the closet....

Today Glen Hysen's son,Anton Hysen, came "out of the closet". He is now the first swedish footballer who has come out openly as gay. It takes a strong person, with a strong and loving family to do this in a still very macho orientated world of sports.

We had a norwegian male handball player "outing" himself to his teammates and the rest of Norway as being gay. He has since said he regrets making it public, mainly because of the strain and stress it all caused. That is the unfortunate world of male sports. In womens football and handball, at least here in Norway, being gay/lesbian is not an issue. It has not been an issue for many years thankfully. It is widely excepted within the two communities and not a "biggie" outside of it either.

I can only salute his decission and braveness. Hopefully this will not hinder his future career as a footballer. We can only hope.... And hopefully some day we will not have to even consider the need to "come out of ANY closet".

Clinch of the Scums

Well,as some one pointed out earlier on Twitter: EFC lose, MUFC lose, Vidic suspended, Carlsberg don't do tuesdays,but if they did......

I still crinch seeing "nonames" in blue, seems like I'm having problems getting over him like many of my fellow reds.... but, we will get there...soon. I actually was secretly hoping he would score just to piss of the mancs, but it would have been with mixed emotions. Guess it's like any other true relationships. When they end, you kinda wish them all the best and happiness in the world,but then... you really just want all the plagues known to mankind upon them.

The other satisfactory bit with the game today was that referee Martin Atkinson stayed true to his ways by handing out red cards and giving penalties. Well at least one of each.

This was a funny one on Twitter today:

@HowardWebb_MUFC
BREAKING NEWS - The F.A have issued a warning to referee Martin Atkinson after he didn't allow Man United to win against Chelsea tonight. <<<< looooool:D

Now we just are looking forward to sunday.I'm going to try and get myself to the Sportscafé in Stavanger and join all the LFC supporters in town to see us put up a great game against the red scums.

Now it's time for bed.Eyelids heading south...

View from the ferry we took on our little "roadtrip" to Haugesund.


Ferry M/F Stavangerfjord before leaving Mortavika, Rennes√ły (Municipality)in Norway.
Had a great trip. @SvenLinnquist had made us chicken sandwich, and the ever present potato crisp and Coke was also with us :)
He got his new car as well so it all ended very well.... :D
