Jiri Tlusty Has Breakfast With Scot

picturesUntil news broke that nude photos of Maple Leafs forward Jiri Tlusty were flying around the interweb, this entry of mine was ranked in the top five when you Googled his name. Today, young Jiri Tlusty belongs to us all. He's gone from being the only teenager in the Maple Leafs system to becoming a hero in the gay community, overnight.

Jiri Tlusty, while playing in the OHL for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, took naked shots of himself in a mirror and sent them to someone via email. I won't link to the pictures, which include pics of Tlusty touching tongues with another man, but you can find them with just a little effort.

If you google Breakfast With Scot right now, I'm still holding down the 8th spot thanks to this entry I wrote last November. Breakfast With Scot is a movie starring Tom Cavanaugh as an ex-Toronto Maple Leaf who happens to be gay and it opens this week. This coincidence is uncanny.

Is Jiri Tlusty gay? I honestly don't know, but I hope so. And if he's gay, I'd love for him to come out of the closet as a Toronto Maple Leaf and blow this caveman perception of NHLers to Kingdom Come. Someone has to make the first move, play the role of Rosa Parks, and force professional sports into this accepting and tolerant age. I hope it's a Leaf and I hope I'm proven right and the reaction is nothing but positive.

It's long overdue.

there I go again! I wasnt paying attention to the media and i missed seeing a hot hockey player naked.. and as soon as I find out about it the images are gone from the net! if you've managed to save them or something feel free to email them along... and yes it is completely time for a gay hockey player.. a professional one that is, to come out.

I'm very surprised no more comments on this. Have any other hockey players come out of the closet?
It doesn't matter to me as long as they can play Canada's game.
This is the 21st century not the 20th.

Few comments, but lots of traffic. This entry has been getting a lot of visits.

I don't think people know what to say... or they're just looking for the pictures.

You belong in the media...You've sensationalized a story that isn't there...The picture of him touching toungues with another man are the result of a dare...Some research before trying to create a story might assist you in achieving accuracy.

I never, ever said Tlusty was gay, although I couldn't care less if he was.

The story yesterday was that he was gay, and I clearly said I didn't know if he was gay, I just wish he was. I'd like an active NHLer to come out of the closet so we can blow away this stigma.
