Atlanta Bucks tackle Bishop Eddie Long

imageBishop Eddie Long took a shower with the Atlanta Bucks Rugby Football Club on Sunday during the Pride parade. Figuratively, of course.

Long and his recent sex scandal — which comes complete with orange, white and black muscle shirts — was a topic on the wall of the Bucks Shower theme for the float they created along with the Atlanta Eagle for the parade. Their message? “For a good time call Bishop Eddie Long” with the phone number for his New Birth Missionary Baptist Church and “Sweet 16.” That’s a reference for Long’s alleged penchant for starting his affairs with males at the church just as they turn legal for sex under Georgia law.
