NFLPA selling Donte’ Stallworth LGBT pride shirts

The NFLPA announced on Wednesday the creation of “One Team Pride” shirts, an LGBT-themed tee whose sales will benefit Athlete Ally, the group founded by former Maryland wrestler Hudson Taylor.

The shirts, according to a press release, can be customized with the player names and jersey numbers for several current and former NFL athletes: Brendon Ayanbadejo, Connor Barwin, Scott Fujita, Steve Gleason, Chris Gocong, Chris Kluwe, Terrell Suggs, Eric Winston and soon-to-be Redskins receiver Donte’ Stallworth, which is why I’m writing about them. They’ll run ya $24.99. See more here.

Speaking of Stallworth, he talked to reporters this week about that time his butt caught on fire during a hot air balloon ride.

“It felt exactly like the cartoons,” he said. “When you see people getting electrocuted on cartoons, that’s exactly what it felt like….Literally, my butt caught on fire.”

Clearly, it wasn’t actually amusing, although he did say he laughed on the way to the hospital.
