Detroit Media Review for Super Bowl Week

The February 2, 2006 edition of Detroit's lesbian/gay/etc. newspaper Between the Lines features a story headlined "Gay in the NFL," mostly an interview with retired football player Esera Tuaolo. Meanwhile, the Metro Times, our biggest mainstream entertainment paper, seems to be featuring "Straight in the NFL."

On the left is the cover from Between the Lines. On the right, the cover from the Metro Times. Both published February 2, 2006, three days before Super Bowl XL in Detroit.

Both photos were downloaded from their respective websites. The actual Metro Times cover had text on it, of course, listing all the entertainment and information appearing in the issue.

Now this entry is unsafe for work. Great.

LOL. It's ironic that the mainstream "straight" item would be the one that makes it non-worksafe, if in fact it does.

It was definitely eye-catching.

Between the Lines, meanwhile, had an inside photo of Mr. Tuaolo with his partner and their two kids, the perfect picture of domestic bliss. There should be some little bits of blown-up stereotypes floating around somewhere, huh?

*dodges flying bits*

Alas, people who believe in stereotypes never see them fall apart.

So much humor potential here...

1. Picture number 2 is, perhaps, an outtake of John & Yoko's famous final photo shoot, where they acted out one of their sports fantasies....

2. Just about anything that includes the words "tight end"...

The mind boggles...

Yoko Ono in a cheerleader outfit was not an image I was ready for this morning.

(Poor Yoko, everyone always picking on her.....)
