21 reasons to welcome soccer jock Anton Hysén to the South

Add this share

We're crushing hard on Swedish soccer stud Anton Hysén. Why? He's sexy, talented, gay and coming to the South next month to play with us.

The 23-year-old signed with the Myrtle Beach Mutiny of the National Premier Soccer League and makes his way to South Carolina in early April. The team celebrated his skills on the field; we're basking in his sexiness off it.

Hysén becomes the second openly gay pro soccer player in the U.S. As for the other one, Robbie Rogers of the Los Angeles Galaxy, Hysén says he's not his type.

Now, 21 reasons Hysén is so our type.

1. He's super hot.


2. And hairy.


3. But really hot.


4. Seriously.


5. Yep.


6. He's so friendly.


7. Adorable, even.


8. Affectionate.


9. Athletic.


10. He's openly gay.

From his interview with gay4soccer:

His attitude about it is great, with an understanding that people may have views against him and his sexuality due to a way in which they were raised. “I can’t blame anybody for being from a different family or a different culture,” he says adding that his play on the field will hopefully be the ultimate determination of how he is viewed within the sport rather than his sexuality. He gives a ballsy “nope” to questions about if he’s worried about how he’ll be treated due to homophobia; it’s a great attitude to have for someone who has come out so early in his career with at least ten good soccer-playing years ahead of him.


11. And will be openly gay in South Carolina.


12. He likes to party in a hot tub.


13. But he also enjoys quiet Saturday nights at home.


14. He bares all for QX magazine.


15. His booty, too.


16. He talks Swedish in the shower. Naked.


17. He dances.


18. He dances with this butt.


19. And these boys.


20. Finally, it's all about those legs.


21. And that bulge.


Welcome to the South, Anton!
