Rumor has it that Swedish footballer Anton Hysén is considering an offer to play professional soccer in the United States. For those who aren’t in the know, Anton came out to Swedish magazine Offside back in March of this year, so this would make him America’s first pro-athlete to publicly acknowledge he’s gay while his career’s still active.
Also? His arrival stateside would cause hundreds of gay men to suddenly care about soccer. Can they please put a note in his contract that he’s required to play naked shirtless?
