Robbie Rogers Talks With Chelsea Handler About Showering With The Team And The Sochi Olympics

Adorable out L.A. Galaxy soccer player Robbie Rogers stopped by Chelsea Lately on Thursday and talked about his coming out, the Sochi Winter Olympics and what its like showering with a soccer team.

“The guys are nothing but supportive.” Robbie said.  “They make jokes when we’re in the shower, if the lights are off they’ll be like, ‘I wonder why the lights are off, you know, Robbie’s coming in the shower.'”

 

While Robbie is incredibly brave in his coming out (and totally cute) I disagree with him completely about boycotting the Olympics. He’s an athlete and they love the sports limelight. To me its though I find the “they trained so hard” argument incredibly selfish.  That a few hundred athletes chance at competing for an Olympic medal trumps the human rights, lives and safety of gay men and women in Russia is mind boggling and extremely sad.

  1. Will, this is a big frustration with me, the more I’ve given thought about it, I really think the IOC failed on this issue, and only thought about hanging out with Putin in a bank vault counting all the money. The thought about human rights doesn’t even bubble up in there heads, as I see it.

What do you think?
