Hamms OK with gays

A couple weeks ago, I happened across a brief article from 2004 at outsports.com, about Olympic athlete brothers Paul and Morgan Hamm saying that they "welcome every fan--gay or straight."

Which was nice to see, but the bit that really amused me was this:

Just as with any attractive, white, successful male athlete, the brothers have been the subjects of some (wishful) rumors that they might be gay.

"That rumor doesn't bother me," Morgan said. "It's almost flattering. It makes me feel that we are reaching all kinds of people and touching them."
