We got to talking about religion in sports this week, and San Francisco sports writer Kevin Lynch called into the show. He shared his conversations with 49er tight end Vernon Davis about gay athletes and how Davis told him his religion helped lead him to acceptance of gays. Pretty great stuff - thanks for calling in, Kevin!

Gay pro soccer player Anton Hysen has made the leap across the Atlantic Ocean and is now playing professional soccer for the Myrtle Beach Mutiny in South Carolina. We talked to him about his experiences so far in the first few weeks of his U.S. tour, what he's been surprised by, the reception in South Carolina, and the difference in levels of play between European soccer and American soccer. Plus, Cyd couldn't help but get in a question about Anton's dating life.

And of course we couldn't resist some quick conversation about the upcoming NFL Draft, Michael Sam and the prospects of a couple teams next season with the release of the 2014 NFL schedule.
