Wednesday Happy Hour: Cheers to You All

Yes, we're excited you're on the list, too.

Wow. Quite a big day here at gay4soccer and thanks to you all who were part of it by helping add to our Allies list or sharing our post about it. We are very excited to have had two MLS/USMNT alumni and one current MLS player sign on today. A few more stories we’ve had our eye on today including Americans abroad and boldly combating homophobia in UK soccer are after the jump. 

A lower division English soccer team Oxford City has fired a player over a homophobic Tweet about out rugby player Gareth Evans appearing on Celebrity Big Brother. Will a team in the US (in any sport) ever take this kind of action against a player following homophobic comments?

US Men’s National Team Players Tim Ream and Robbie Rogers are both on the move to England. Our NY writer touched on the Tim Ream rumors earlier this week.

Lots of American attention on the Tottenham vs. Everton matchup this afternoon after the Brad Friedel / Landon Donovan brouhaha of last month. Final score Tottenham 2 – 0 Everton.
