How gay are you?

    A gay softball organization can keep its rule limiting the number of heterosexual players on each team, but allegations by three players who say they were disqualified from a tournament because they weren't gay enough can proceed to trial, a federal judge said.

    A thousand jokes aside, what I found interesting in this story is the players who were disqualified because they were not gay enough.

    Interesting passage here:

    'The minutes say rumors had persisted for years about whether D2 was stacking its team with straight ringers. In addition to the three plaintiffs, the team had two designated straight players. The organization says it has always considered bisexuals to meet the definition of "gay" for roster purposes, but the minutes also note that one official involved in the decision to disqualify D2 commented that "this is not a bisexual world series. This is a gay world series."

    So who won the bisexual world series last year? And is that team good enough to beat the Mets?

    Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    It's not gay if there is a girl somewhere in the room.

    So is that the only league where you can be gay and like somebody who plays on the other team?

    Pitchers and catchers must be gay?
    No switch hitters?
    gives new meaning to the 6-4-3
    Does DP still stand for double play?
    Is the 3rd batter in the inning still," in the hole" or is that too heterosexual?

    How much attention does this get if you substitute black or Latino for gay.
