Vince Young looks good shirtless – no homo

Add this share

Pro athletes go to extremes to avoid anything gay. Well, except for Vince Young, the Tennessee Titans QB who likes to dance shirtless with other guys while clubbing.

But now it seems he can brush off his man-on-man indiscretions by uttering this simple phrase: no homo. It’s all the rage in the NFL, according to Deadspin.

LenDale White says to Vince Young: “Vince, you’ve got great nips. No homo.”

Did you catch the subtle twist there? LenDale has said something that on any other day might be considered gay, but, and this is key, he’s inoculated his heterosexuality by appending, no homo at the end. No homo also works at the front of the phrase but then it’s much less enjoyable because the other party has been keyed into the homosexuality of the statement that’s to follow. Hence, “No homo. Vince you’ve got great nips.” No dice there.

Comedian Will Hatcher also breaks it down in this video.

To help, imagine a conversation like this between Young and Troy Aikman: “Troy, dude, your moves are as smooth as Johnny Weir on ice. No homo.” Maybe that’s a bad example, given that all three are, well… No homo.
