    At 52, I might be the oldest commenter. Cynic and prickly (occasionally without the -ly) on the surface, not to mention more than a little pedantic and wordy, but a heart of gold. On the gay front, and some other fronts, trust me, I’ve earned my stripes.


    p.s.: So anyone knows I am absolutely not trolling for young people. Ain’t my thing. Put this here ’cause someone suggested adding e-mail addresses.

    Austin, professional oddball/geek. Love poetry, long walks on the beach, and discussing the entropy loss associated with large-scale quantum singularities. I came out at 13 and have spent a lot of free time since then trying to help people change their perspectives on life.

    I chose the dumb name of “green and purple” and I’m kinda stuck with it now, lol. I’m a gay, married (to another man, of course) parent to a six year old son. I’m one of the many that Mikey converted into a blogger.

    My name is Jimmy n I am no longer Canadium. Mikey says I am Manitobium – n I like that waaay better. I’m a student and an ass. Both, completely interchangeable or in unison. I too thought bloggers were jus creepy old men. Now, I know it’s more diverse. There are creepy Minny-teens too!

Played hockey growing up but never in HS and now just mostly focus on school and following the hockey team around whenever possible.

  10. green and purple Says:

    Mikey, how about with the bios we add our email addresses (optional, of course) so that if we want to comment to someone without posting it on your blog we can email him or her directly? I haven’t figured out how to look up someone’s email address from your site.

  11. rangerstan Says:

    Three sentences or less on whom I am -middle age gay guy with a husband, Minneapolis home, grew up on Iron Range in a huge hockey family, love watching college hockey more than NHL, way too involved in GLBT causes in MN and loves pizza probably even more than Mikey

    • firstlinewinger Says:

      I love Mikey way more than pizza!

  12. firstlinewinger Says:

    FLW, I grew up, played youth hockey and HS hockey for an outstate Mn school. Played in the Mn HS State Tourney, was never a firstlinewinger, till now. I’m a SCSU fan and (closeted gopher fan) I’ve never said that out loud..Jeez, all of a sudden I feel free!

  20. Karen From Rochester Says:

    I’m Karen. I’m a recently widowed mom with 2 daughters. I am a civil engineer and work for a municipal organization. I found Mikey’s blog via Bourne’s blog and come here to read the posts and witty repartee and get a smile. Occasionally, I’ll chime in with a comment, but most of the time I just enjoy reading. : O )

  21. Joel Says:

    I was born on the Ides of March, 1936. I have always been a supporter of civil rights of all kinds, and I was at the 1963 Martin Luther King March on Washington. I am bisexual, married, and I have always been loyal to my wife. Back in 1999, I put up a website about trading stocks and mutual funds, and I have a monthly journal which today would be called a blog. While I have never been athletic, I have always worked out and tried to be in good shape. You might find some of the stuff on my site amusing (particularly about the dogs).


  22. A Says:

    I’m Andrew. I grew up in Wyoming coming from a very conservative family but i got out of there as fast as i could. I’m a sophomore in college. I love sports. I Ski raced and played soccer throughout high school. I am not out to anybody. I have only been following Mikey for a month and it is good to know that there are some people out there like me.

  23. Fred Says:

    Hi, I am a 48 y.o. former high school coach who found Mikey’s blog through Outsports. I am back in school for a career change, and believe in helping out the younger generation in their journey out into this big ol gay world! Live in Phoenix, maybe I should be following the Coyotes? (What do you think about that Mikey, worthwhile?)

  24. Selma1dude Says:

    Hi, I’m a 39 y.o. gay guy living in California’s beautiful Central Valley. I also found Mikey’s blog through Outsports. I’m new to computers and to the blog world. I’m not out to many people so I understand what Mikey’s going through. I’m hoping to learn alot about “Mikey Nation” and hopefully learn something about myself along the way.

  25. Matt Says:

    I’m Matt, 29 years old and out to most people. I’m involved in politics and studied political science for both my undergraduate an graduate degrees. I’ve been following Mikey’s blog since I read about it on Outsports.com and although I comment only once in a while, I really enjoy reading Mikey’s posts and the discussions that they generate. I’ve spent the last three years learning how to play hockey (and skate) and as a result, have found a new pastime / hobby / form of release that I really enjoy.

  26. Joe Says:

    Hey folks. Not a huge commenter, but been a reader since the Outsports story. Have asked Mikey my share of questions over on the formspring site. 40, small town lawyer on the East Coast. Mostly a fan of Baltimore and Philly teams, plus my college. Sadly, can never watch my team play anything or they’ll lose. Like they did Saturday. Heartbreaking, and it was my fault. Mostly in the closet, with a long-term long-distance relationship. Too long distance. Hope everyone’s doing well.

  27. robert Says:

    i’m robert from red bluff, ca. My mikey (that’s his name, really,) and I live on a farm with 6 dogs and a donkey. We’ve been together 30 years, the 1st 25 in SF. I’m also from Outsports and I sure enjoy this blog. Shows not much has changed since I was in hs back in the ’60’s. Like Mikey I noticed boys when I was 12 and waited for things to change and they never did. So I spent my time racing slalom and downhill (I’m from Colo.). To this day skiers are the sexiest athletes around and I love snow so much I shovel walks for free (love the post about jake shoveling the deck w/mikey inside, watching.)

    I didn’t pick a real “username.” I’m in my mid-20s, and a gay girl who grew up in south Florida but somehow has loved hockey since the 4th grade. I went to college in Pittsburgh, and have earned my right to root for the Penguins. I like Fleury, so make fun of Sid all you want. I work in marketing doing statistics.

    My name is really Alex (named after the great one), in Toronto, although I once used krivoyrog. I’m an ageing baby boomer lecturing and consulting in my field. If you’re desperate for a pic, here’s my blog: http://sandwindstars.blogspot.com Visit at your own risk since it’s probably more boring than M’s “boring” life. I’ve been follower since late Dec, and found M’s ramblings and quirky mind intriguing. That includes his choice of photos, and hockey lectures. Btw., M, when you’ve finally trademarked and branded your blog for some ridiculous amount like $184 m, does this mean your special commenters get a piece of the royalty?

Good times all around! Not really a jock ever apart from the gym, but am enjoying learning about the hockey.

    I’m Chad, a 20 year old Mormon from the suburbs of Salt Lake. I’m out and happy, going to a private liberal arts school here in Salt Lake. I found the blog through Outsports. I’m not much of a commenter, but after hearing Mikey on Ben and Dave I felt I should show some love.

  40. ConfusedGradMN Says:

    23 years old living in the Twin Cities. Been following since the OutSports story. Confused about my sexuality but nice to read about someone else talk about it. Obviously by my name you can see that I’ve been inspired by Mikey to blog. Don’t comment much but always enjoy reading here, particularly these Maddy stories I hear about all the time…

  42. Erik Says:

    Hey im Erik, an out 21 year old from a southern suburb of the twin cities. Im currently in chicago studying environmental engineering. In hs I was in nordic skiing and cross country, and I played hockey through bantams. Now all i really have time for is running and studying.

    Ive been a follower since outsports. Never commented before but figured this would be as good of a time as any to jump in.

    I am a 47yo gay communications Manager slash novelist who lives three meters below sea level in clogg land. Single against my will, not even a cat can bear my presence. Found Mikey through Outsports.com, was at first fascinated by Mikeyspeak, enjoy now foremost the Mikey Nation atmosphere. Got also interested in hockey but recently found out that our local hockey team did not play this season due to sponsor issues. They plan to come back in the 2010/2011 season and I plan to attend every home game (They play within spitting distance of my house. Who knew?). E-mail: albertg@gmail.com

  50. OberonOZ Says:

    I came to Mikeynation via Towleroad and the Outsports article. Stayed because I really like listening to what Mikey has to say and how he says it, (much more than the hockey I must admit! hehe), also I really like the Mikeynation community that has grown up here. Im 48 soon and I live in Western Australia – so not a lot of ice here, outside of fridges and bars hehe!! Im gay and am happily single at the moment. Lots of good friends luckily and am passionate about music!! Love going to concerts etc. I check this out daily, so will definitely be around even if I dont post that regularly.

  51. Herr Moguls Dude Says:

    Hey everyone, I’m Dave from Bah-stun, 48 y/o, gay, have a boyfriend of 14 years and our doggie, and loving life. I found Mikey through Outsports. I played soccer growing up and have been swimming laps continuously since 18, but my sport passion is and always has been skiing–and I ski the pants off guys half my age. 🙂 I’m a biz owner/executive, used to be the adult advisor to the local gay/lesbian youth group, and one of these days hopefully I’ll become the person my dog thinks I really am.

  52. JustinCT Says:

    Guess I have to get in on the fun! Found this joint, like so many others, through Outsports. I’m one of the ‘elders’ at 36. Out since I was 15 so I guess that doubly makes me an elder (good God – 1989?!). Runner in HS, crew in college, and now a duathlete (google it). I also mentor a gay kid which might be why I like this blog so much – helps give me some extra insight.

  54. Chad Says:

    I’m a college kid in NY. Bisexual but not out. Really, really into basketball (favorite sport), baseball and football (and some hockey also). if there are any other (preferabbly good lookin lol) college aged dudes around NY, email me csmith9210@yahoo.com

  55. Mick in Detroit Says:

    Hey all. Also came upon this blog via towleroad and outsports. I’m in my early 30s, a lawyer in private practice, and have been happily partnered for just about 5 years. I’m a former Marine, I played HS sports, mainly basketball..and while I was no slouch, I’ve been completely out shined by my younger brother who plays in Europe now. I was in a fraternity in college and I bleed green and white- Go Michigan State!

  56. John Says:

    Hey, I’m John, a 21 y.o. gay law student in L.A. I found out about the blog through Outsports, and really connected with what mikey was saying- especially because I grew up in the midwest.

  57. Cory Says:

    started following after reading about it in outsports Just an everyday gay in minneapolis partnered for twelve years consider myself out but people still dont get it.. 41 yrs old and wishing there was a blog like this when I was younger could have made things so much easier. cxander98@yahoo.com

  58. Chuck Says:

    I’m just signing up to show my support for this blog and the community it’s got going. So, so needed, with a great message that’s come around none too soon 🙂

    I’m 27 and live in California, tho I hail from the midwest originally. Lots of this sounds way familiar!

  59. TominBrewTown Says:

    Hey everyone. Have been following Mikey for a while now, either through Towleroad or Outsports I don’t remember. Well let’s see, I’m 34, originally from the suburbs of Hockeytown, and now live in Beer City. Haven’t really commented much, maybe a couple of times under a different handle. Think maybe I’ll start commenting more. This blog has a different feel than most I’ve found and the atmosphere is great. I like most of the older followers wish something like this would have been around when I was Mikey’s age.

  60. Femmes Says:

    I’m a college athletic administrator in California, out as a dyke at work. Rural-raised and urban-living queer femme performer and athlete. Swimmer in HS, rower in college, and about to run my first half-marathon. Mikeynation inspires me, makes me laugh, and reminds me how much work there is to do about homophobia in sport.

  62. the other Fred Says:

    I arrived via Towleroad and Outsports mostly to let Mikey know I’d have his back since I’m also in the Twin Cities. But I quickly learned there are lots of people here who would have his back. I stay because Mikey seems like a pretty cool guy and I’m a hockey fan who thinks the MN State Hockey Tournament is the best sporting event in Minnesota! I also have an ex bf who’s a pro athlete (ex because he’s too closeted). So Mikey and his story is a little close to home in many ways.

  63. Joe in Philly Says:

    I’m Joe, and I’m in Philly. But you probably guessed that by now. 😉 I’ll be 48 in less than a month. Like so many others, I learned of Mikey and his blog from Outsports. Once I saw that he said Sidney Crosby was whiny, I was hooked. I’m amazed by how this has turned into an online community. I’m also a little jealous because Mikey has a lot more people reading his blog than I do. 😉 To keep this short, if you want to find out more about me visit my blog and go from there.

    Hey Mikey Nation, I’m currently 24 years old living the life in New York City and you can call me BiSportzDude or BSD. I like sports especially baseball and football but I’m attracted to both men and women. Oh gets worse I’m still closeted. Hence why I didn’t reveal my name. Thanks to Mikey I started my own blog http://bisportzdude.blogspot.com/ and you can email me anytime at BiSportzDude@yahoo.com.

    I’m Eric, full-time lurker and occasional commenter in MikeyNation; I’m a 20-something Canadium who used to think he was a sarcastic ass until he met Jimmy. I spend my time workin for the man, which involves wayyy too much travel, and as a result I don’t play nearly enough hockey anymore.

    • jenn Says:

      probably should have included something about being queer… and i think i got here from outsports? i honestly can’t remember.

  67. Jon B Says:

    Hi, I’m Jon. I’ve only commented a few times, but I read the blog daily. Anyway, I’m 26 years old, just graduated law school, but decided that I didn’t want to practice which obviously thrilled my parents. I wanted to be a writer, however no magazines or newspapers are/were currently hiring. So now I’m doing TV production, and I kind of hate this too. Basically, I’m in the middle of finding out that I hate working, which kind of sucks. I just moved back to NYC after being in Atlanta for college and DC for law school. Couldn’t be happier to be back after 7 years. I came out to my family and friends in college, and luckily everyone was amazing. I’ve never really been that into sports, but almost all of my friends are straight guys who love sports, and this blog has actually helped me get into sports a bit more. I found my way here from Towleroad and Outsports.

  68. T Says:


    I’m a Canadian (Canadium as Mikey apparently likes to say), 30 something, and have been an avid hockey fan (and player too) since I was about 6 years old. Have skated since I was like 3.

    Came across the blog I think through Outsports and like it for the fact that it shoots down the gay stereotypes and although there’s a generation gap between me and Mikey – and a huge border and several thousand miles/kms between us, I can relate to so much of what he says, and hope I can add some insight from my life experiences and still maybe learn a thing or two from his life experiences.

    I’m Phil from NYC, 30 y/o been in the NYC area for about 10 years, originally from Nor Cal. Love football, baseball and hockey. Love/hate relationship with basketball. When it comes to my teams I’m all over the map. If you can’t figure it out from the name huge Rangers fan, being from the bay area I’m a SF Giants fan, and in football I’m a Cowboys fan thanks to my stepdad. Could be worse he could of made me a Islanders fan like some people. And I’m sure Mikey hates me now that he knows I’m a Cowboys fan. Work in a sports related career. I’m not out in my career, it’s not the most openminded field. Read Mikey’s blog from Outsports, and here to just support him and to bust Jimmy’s balls. So far I think I’m doing a good job.

  72. Tom Says:

    sophomore in chicago in high school and varsity swimmer. I love you because i feel so much like i can relate to you. Swam since i was nine, and i have good friends there that i am afraid to come out to even tho i really want to. can you see our emails?

    Closeted guy living in Chicago, raised in the Midwest and went to the University of Illinois-big fighting Illini fan and love our Blackhawks. Plan on staying closeted for now as I work in the Sports and Recreation field so I know what Mikey is going through and admire his outlook. This is the most I have told pretty much anyone about myself-I feel very comfortable talking with everyone here. Thanks!

    I got here through Outsports and I love the attitude of the people here, starting with Mikey. I’m older, 53, but have played recently with the NY Gay Hockey Association and hope to return. I’m a writer/editor, pushing my organization, A Thousand Moms, to help gay youth in foster care. Been addicted to hockey since my Uncle John, who worked for the Rangers, took me and my brothers to games every Sunday night. Great memories of having him take us to the ice to meet the players, including Mr. Bobby Orr.
