Ellen shows (gay) footballers dancing

I was so happy to see the Boston gay football league's dance video did finally end up on Ellen. It's great exposure for gay athletes to be shown having fun on one of daytime's most popular shows. On the flip side, it's pretty disappointing that Ellen didn't mention it's a GAY flag football league! She said they were from Boston. She said they played flag football. She even said they were men (she says men are one of her favorite things). But no mention of them being gay.

Why? That's the whole point: That they're gay and they play football (and they dance en masse in the subway). It's a strange decision by Ellen to not mention it.

Watch the video after the jump.
