I’m long overdo for a “Woof Wednesday” entry and rather than go my intended route of highlighting hot celebrities that are portrayed as super-heroes (or villains) I thought maybe I should consider a real life hero; Brian Sims, member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. I don’t need to point out that he’s Democrat, right? That’s just assumed? Good.
Before I outline some of his great contributions to the furthering of Gay Rights, let’s take a quick look at the Throwback Thursday (TBT) picture that, in my opinion, deserved more credit in potentially breaking the internet than the one about Kim Kardashian and her over-exposed ass (and I mean that in every possible sense of the phrase). I’m sure by now you’ve seen it but it warrants a 2nd look… or 10.
I mean… COME ON! How is this guy so damned perfect?!? He’s an elected official who happens to be gay and pushing for equal rights for all AND he was a football player in his youth? Flawless has a name and it’s Brian Sims. I say this whilst I ignore that unusual combination of socks, sandals and leg warmers he’s got going on. The rest of his pigskin ensemble makes up for the faux pas though; especially that belly shirt. WOOF, indeed.
During his time playing football in college, he made history as the first openly gay football player in NCAA history. Not trying to steal Michael Sam’s thunder or anything, but this hottie was there first and opened the door for others like him looking to live the most genuine life possible.
And then of course, there’s all the great work he does with his political power. He is a vocal and staunch supporter of equal rights for all and isn’t afraid of fighting for what he believes in. I’m not even one that usually follows any amount of political news because it usually makes me SO angry that I turn red; which as an Asian guy, leads to me looking drunk.
All in all, what we have in our hands is Superman made flesh. Pause for a moment to consider tha awesomeness of having this beefcake actually in your hands….. Ok, I’m good. The fact that he’s more than “easy on the eyes” really should be that second thing you think about when you consider the measure of this man, but one look into those eyes and I forget all the important stuff.
So with all that said, I leave you with one parting thought, presented visually:
I literally cannot even deal with the sheer awesomeness of this video. You gotta give it up to the boys from Sorted Food to take such an undeniable gay classic like Kelis’s Milkshake, re-hash it and use it for their foodie channel.
Due to the sheer coolness of the video, I’ll give them a pass for not actually making a milkshake after their little tune was done. Mad props to the guys for also incorporating a little bit of choreography to the mix. Extra kudos goes to Jamie for the bootie wiggle at the 50 sec mark followed by Barry’s confused look at his aforementioned tooshie. I rewound it a few times to watch the double-take, again and again.
