Sporting his national colours

So a little history took place this Memorial Day Weekend. Robbie Rogers, whom you may recall from the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup Team, not only came out of retirement to join the L.A. Galaxy, but became the first openly gay male athlete to actively play in a Major League Soccer game.

There’s been some debate about this in light of many recent “firsts”, namely that some sporty media types may have neglected to point out that Andrew Goldstein was the first openly gay male athlete to play in a professional league when he was active in Major League Lacrosse in 2005 (which I didn’t know because lacrosse.) Regardless, golf claps all around as we celebrate another step towards acceptance and focus on the REAL reason for this post:

Robbie Rogers is ADORBS!

Robbie models, and therefore knows how to rock a coat. I’ll bet his pants are hemmed properly too.

HE LOVES PUPPIES!!!

And I dig him because he loves the same things I do: yoga, sushi, BBQ, running and, to quote his bio, “dance parties ;)”! Oh Robbie! Be our best friend!
