Interesting Quote: Gareth Thomas


"I've been through all sorts of emotions with this, tears, anger and absolute despair. I wasn't sure if I ever wanted to let people know and, to be honest, I feel anxious about people's reactions and the effect it might have on my family. I don't want to be known as a gay rugby player. I am a rugby player first and foremost. I am a man. I just happen to be gay. It's irrelevant. What I choose to do when I close the door at home has nothing to do with what I have achieved in rugby.''

He was a big rugby star and just came out.

Smart, thoughtful, and hot. Will he marry me? Oh, yeah, not in my state, and not in most of my country....

I agree with his statement. I'll follow him closely now.

I love the Welsh. My neighbour is Welsh and I fantasize sometimes about him....but on a more serious note - I completely understand and concur with his statement!
