Mark Sanchez likes "Glee," Justin Bieber and show tunes

Time to dig out the gay stereotypes. New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez hits the trifecta in an interview and photo spread in GQ Magazine that is making the rounds.

Maybe the most striking thing about Sanchez's home is what's on the DVR. Holding a white towel around his waist, heading for the shower, he flips through his saved shows. A documentary about Justin Bieber? Episodes of Glee? The quarterback of the New York Jets is a Gleek and a Belieber?

Yes, he says, failing to notice the tone of incredulity.

The DVR squares with Sanchez's unabashed love of show tunes. ... He's seen just about every show out there, many of them multiple times. His truck is cluttered with cast albums.

If that's not enough, Sanchez was invited to a White House dinner and took a dude as his date, offensive lineman D'Brickashaw Ferguson, "because he knows Ferguson likes politics."

I think this is cool. Either Sanchez is gay, in which case he doesn't give a damn who know what his tastes are. Or he's straight, in which case he doesn't give a damn what his tastes might suggest. I don't listen to Justin Bieber or show tunes or watch "Glee," so maybe I'm a closeted straight man who happens to run a gay sports website.
