Nah, Michael Strahan's Not Gay, He Just Goes on Dates With Guys Who... Pay... For... It....


Much was made of a comment made by Michael Strahan's wife during their very public and fairly nasty divorce proceedings regarding the "alternative lifestyle" that Strahan led when he moved in with his friend Ian after Jean and Michael Strahan decided they could no longer co-habitate. The tabloids ran the story on the front and back page and Strahan had to defend himself tooth and nail about it. This was not the first time Strahan had been accused of being gay. I've been calling him gay since around 1996. But the story didn't really have legs and his soon to be ex-wife retracted her statement and blah blah blah. Through it all, I never lost faith in Strahan's predilection for the male form and external genitalia (sorry, that was a little much I know). Well, he came through again, though this time it was not his "fault". Last week at Buddha Bar, Michael Strahan was auctioned off for a "date" and the proceeds were to benefit the Institute for Civic Leadership, a nonprofit educational organization. The auction was pretty successful and Strahan's bid pulled in $10,000. I'm sure he and THE TWO DUDES who won the auction will have an awesome time (the title of the Post article is "Men For Mike"):

May 16, 2007 -- GIANTS defensive end Michael Strahan put himself on the charity auction block the other night at Buddha Bar's first anniversary. He hoped to get a date with a lady, but the male sports fans in the crowd weren't having it. Two guys outbid 13 gals, leaving Strahan to agree to take both men to dinner for the price of $10,000 each.
The Post spins this story as a couple of crazy Giants fans who were hellbent on hanging out with their hero so they outbid the 13 young lovelies in the room for a chance to meet him. I would disagree. Anyone who has that kind of scratch to spend on an auction can afford to meet Strahan at a charity golf event or get VIP passes to any Giant event featuring Strahan and meet him there. If you spend 10G's to meet Strahan and you're a guy, you either REALLY want to "meat" Strahan, or Strahan has paid you to win the auction and make it seem like he just got unlucky because he didn't want to have to spend a night with a member of the opposite sex and would rather be involved in a leather clad three-way sexcapade with two of his "boys." Either way, I was as right in 1996 as Jean Strahan was in her divorce proceedings.

I swear that guy on the right is the keyboard player for Bon Jovi. Please don't ask why I know what he looks like. I can't help it my sister had crappy taste.
