(ESPN)   It's OK to be gay in an NFL shower room just so long as you're not a meat peeper. In baseball, however, the biggest concern for rookies was not to let Greg Maddux get too close   (espn.go.com) divider line 30

"Early on I had to tell my teammates, 'You can make fun of it, you can joke about it, it's OK: Come at me,'" says Cooper. "So then any time we'd be in the shower and someone would drop their soap, everyone would yell, 'Uh-oh, Coop!' and we'd all laugh."

That's how equality happens. Seriously. Make it a joke, it's no longer an issue, and we move on.

Great.
Now every time I hear this I'll think of Greg Maddux.

Yep.  That's one way, at least, with guys.  Women would take it seriously, because sexual assault isn't a joke for us.  I tend to joke about my lesbian sense of fashion (or lack thereof).

I just want to say....I've never seen a web page laid out like that before. But it was cool.

There were at least two gay men on my college swim team. We all showered together. As I recall, nobody really cared.

But you're so very close. Well, I hope they're not suede. (nsfw language)

Meat peeper? Sounds like subby listens to Bomani Jones.

I guess you could say that Greg Maddux likes his showers... golden.

Greg Maddux?

He always did have pinpoint control.

I don't understand the need for communal showers in a non-prison setting. Can't they just use shower stalls like they have at the gym?

That must be a  girl's gym.  Guys never got individual stalls when I was in school -- but the girls did

At least the girl's gym in Porky's wasn't like that.  Giggity.

I go to a couple different gyms (part of the same community association), depending on whether I have to pick the kid up from day care. One has single stalls like that, the other is communal like pretty much everywhere else I've ever been.

In high school there was a guy that did the Maddux thing after basketball games.  Of course the same guy would try to pee on you other places too.
 
2014-07-11 10:55:49 PM  
You remember that guy who used to pee on everything? He would pee on the flowers, he would pee on the dog, pee on third base, pee on shopping carts, even peed on a fan.  Good times

The naked Irish jig after clinching the division series is something to treasure seeing.

In high school we had two locker rooms. One had stalls, the other the long communal one. In college all locker rooms had communal showers (which led to usually having someone turn off your hot water while you were shampooing with your eyes closed after soccer practice). But every single one of the paid gyms, from the posh one in a golf club with marble showers and complimentary fresh towel service, to the shiattiest "cockroaches do reps beside you" shiathole had individual stalls.

Maddux is hilarious. Even in his late pitching career he was a notoriously crude. Probably still is.

That was a nice story. Nobody had to lose face and everybody won.
