The kiss between Man U’s Scholes and Neville

For your “that’s so gay!” news of the moment, two Manchester United footballers share a long kiss after narrowly avoiding a draw to win a key game. Thirty-five-year-old football veteran Paul Scholes scored a goal with 17 seconds to spare winning the decisive game for his team. Team captain Gary Neville was so elated at winning that he planted a full-blown lips-to-lips kiss on Scholes on the field.

This kiss became a sensation in the UK especially in the ultra-macho world of English football. You can read a short account of the win over at Daily Mail, or read an interesting commentary on the kiss (touching on homophobia) from The Guardian, or simply admire large photos of the kiss at The Huffington Post. For more viewing pleasure, The Spoiler has assembled a very nice gallery of other English footballers sharing saliva.

Me? I'm just enjoying ogling at the pictures. (And hoping that this leads to less homophobia in the UK. Or at least more guys kissing.) :-)

The pics gave me a hard-on, lol.. Sarap nila, straight ang dating. But if we have gay athletes, I wish they were as brave as them so we could hope too that it would help lead to less homophobia in our country!

@Anon, so you have a thing for athletes? :-)

@Ming Meows, well, there's the Sunkist commercial, right?
