    I hope everyone will notice that the hot and talented Anton Hysen (UBK20) is gracing the pages of RJ these days.

    This is one classy man who at 21 decided to buck convention and come out while playing professional sports. Good for him.

    I saw that he was nominated for MOTD today and I certainly gave him my vote in recognition of his accomplishments. I'm sure he doesn't care about MOTD but I want him to know I love what he is doing (and how he looks doing it just an added bonus).

    Agreed - one of the few out gay sportsmen - kudos for doing it at the start of his career and not the end either....

    I totally agree with the above sentiments - it is refreshing to see a young athlete come out at the beginning of their professional career.

    lol according to his profile he briefly left RJ because he was getting too much attention...so perhaps just leave him alone instead?

    no...the other thread was about David Testo, a professional soccer player from Montreal (where I live) and Anton Hysen is a Swedish professional soccer player
