On Thursday, the University Of Connecticut men’s ice hockey team’s initiative in producing a YouTube clip affirming their acceptance of gay players received notice in this space. A day later, Sirius/XM’s Dino Costa (above), who recently endeared himself to knuckle-dragging hatefuckers by calling a transgendered musician, “it”, weighed in on the UConn story, sneering via his DinoRadio site, “I just must have missed the hundreds of news stories the last few years of homosexual hockey players feeling the brunt of discrimination,”
Since one man putting his erect dick up another man’s asshole is so fucking normal — then I want the hockey community to truly embrace the homosexual world beyond the hollow and shallow words coming out of their mouths — and beyond some insulting marketing ploy that is supposed to show me and the rest of the world just how sensitive they all are.
If you go along with this agenda of the normalization of homosexuality — and if you too feel it is as normal a behavioral reaction as heterosexual behavior is — then please cut the bullshit and go all the way.
Go all the way, buy all in, be a part of the movement in a literal sense.
Begin by making plans this weekend to not hang out at your local watering hole where you and the boys usually like to scope chicks…instead I want UCONN Captain Sean Ambrosie, to put his money where his fucking mouth is, and head out to a homosexual club, and to dance the night away with Jim, and Bob, and Floyd, and Stan.
In reality of course this is bullshit — the UCONN hockey team would rather crawl over a mile of broken glass on their hands and knees than to head to a gay only club anytime soon.
Also, let the UCONN hockey team hold a kegger at one of their most outrageous dorms on campus, invite a few homosexual men and some lesbian women, I’ll bring the booze, and my producer Andrew Caplan will bring the porno tapes. Homosexual porn — of course.
See the difference between these frauds smiling on these promotional tapes and myself, is that I’ll be honest with you — and they’ll insult your intelligence — and yet they’ll be looked upon as the good guys, while I’ll be looked upon as evil incarnate.
“A dick in the mouth — and one up the ass of a man — is something I’ve never seen,” insists Costa, and perhaps he needs to get out of the house more often. “I readily admit that homosexual sex acts make my skin crawl,” he continues, but not before asking, “Someone please explain to me why in the homosexual community, so far as the youth are concerned, young people are six times as likely to suffer from multiple disorders — and six times as likely to attempt suicide?”
Well, maybe it has just a little bit to do with being told from a very young age that homosexual acts are repulsive. Or hearing from the same persons who insist they’re anti-discriminatory (“I’ll continue to have social contact with people of this ilk and I’ll have no problem continuing to do so. However, for reasons of my own, I do not condone the lifestyle, encourage it, support it, nor do I consider it to be normal”) that people like you are gonna end civilization (“Is this a lifestyle that one would think could survive if it were the only lifestyle choice available — or would it be more logical to assume that planet earth would be running toward the potential for human extinction much faster if homosexuality was the dominant sexual orientation?”).
Costa is obviously entitled to his opinions, and now that he’s relocating to that great cosmopolitan locale of Cheyenne, WY, he’s less likely to encounter people who will disagree with him. Face to face, anyway. It would be interesting, however, given that Dino has made it crystal clear he’ll continue to use his Sirius/XM pulpit as a vehicle to weigh in on social issues (“from a faith based initiative, my faith does not condone the lifestyle, and I’ll be dammed if I’m going to crucify my own faith & belief system to bend to your whims and pleasures”) to see what might happen if Costa’s thoughts on “the lifestyle” were widely known by his employers, their shareholders and some of his colleagues. Especially those that actually bring listeners to satellite radio. When the likes of Howard Stern and Steven Van Zandt effectively subsidize Costa’s salary (well, Howard, anyway) how might they feel about sanctioning his creepy worldview?
I can’t speak for the UConn hockey dudes, but some of us who aren’t looking to hide in a cabin in Cheyenne, WY have actually had more contact with gay people besides having “broken bread” (Dino’s words). I think it’s a little weird that a professional broadcaster working in New York City thinks merely walking thru the door of a “homosexual club” is some sort of transgressive, potentially psyche-scarring act. There’s something more than a little contradictory about a 50-year-old man who argues “since I’m not afraid of anyone, including homosexuals and lesbians, the last thing I am, is homophobic on any level,” yet feels compelled to boast he’s never seen a dick in a man’s mouth. I mean, c’mon, Dino, what would’ve happened if you HAD witnessed such a thing? Would your eyeballs have exploded? A massive coronary? Jesus fucking christ, can somebody please get this man some films with an ALL-MALE CAST so we can find out for certain?
It’s pretty in vogue these days for practicing homophobes to opt for a spiel that says merely calling them out for being homophobic is itself, an act of intolerance, and Dino’s not very original in that regard. But it’s almost incomprehensible that he could be so stupid as to claim merely because he’s never heard of a gay kid suffering from discrimination on the ice, such a problem must not really exist. I’m not big on prayer, but if I were, I’d be thinking of the poor kids across the country whose parents listen to this shithead every night. Since that’s about 300 listeners, there could be as many as a dozen children at risk.

You guys are the very best, I mean that – I dig you guys. However, as enthused as you are in leading the way for the homosexual agenda, no doubt the author of the piece being a gay man himself, I simply cannot find the same zeal and enthusiasm to actively go about seeking the environment for seeing a dick in another man’s mouth….simply not my scene. Glad by the way you noted it is my right to hold an opinion that is my own…and I thank you once again for your opinions and coverage of the sports radio show that continues to explode in popularity across North America and around the world…YOUR Dino Costa Show. Buh-bye for now, and thanks for taking heed on my previous warning that you had better not stop covering me and my show…or else.
I was raised in Danielson, CT, and my only sibling holds a degree from Storrs. As an enlightened escapee (to Boston, Pdx, Austin, now Anchorage, wtf) I cynically see a certain motivation to this video that is essentially meta to Connecticut: This liberal state’s most prominent university is located in the one of those revanchist/retrograde Yankee redneck communities, and outside of the bubble of the fancypants campus, the locals are not as welcome to the college-aged weirdos/gays/ethnics as locals adjacent to the schools with competing programs. Most of Connecticut’s players are aware that despite the fiat of the electorate, their sports brand is located in rebel territory, as it were.
I laud the gallant effort of the UCONN hockey program to follow Mr. Burke’s example. But back to the meta-Connecticut thing….I understand that its cretinous to mention lesbianism in basketball, as well as the whole “DL” thing. But I can’t help but to wonder if the powers from west of the CT river aren’t meddling in a positive way to rebrand Storrs as something other than Spokane-east. Deadspin’s Craggs was all alarmed by an AP reporter giving “equal time” to some homophobic twit in the area, but Craggs has the luxury of not committing to living in Storrs for the supposed halcyon days.

I suppose it is slightly mind blowing for a person of your intellect that a straight male might actually give a hoot about discrimination against homosexuals, but I also realize this is the point where my failure to suck cock means I’m a phony liberal like those college kids in Storrs, CT. You can call it “the homosexual agenda” all you want, Dino(saur), but most of the folks reading this blog recognize it the matter for what it is — basic human rights.
As far as seeking the environment for seeing a dick in another man’s mouth, I guess you’re the first person to successfully use Twitter and a blog via the back of a shovel. Look, if you’re worried your mail order bride (who knew Mad Dog Radio paid anyone other than Russo that well?) might have a problem with your browser history, don’t sweat it. I’ll gladly explain you were only doing research and were trying not to puke / expire the entire time.
Percentage of Americans who’d like to witness or imagine Dino engaging in a sex act with himself, a partner of either gender or an inanimate object : zero. However, your right to marry and find gainful employment (moose patrol!) is not in jeopardy simply because of who you love.
“it’s not your scene”. That’s fine. But there’s a world of difference between saying, for instance, “i don’t like pistachio ice cream” and declaring (as you did), “my faith does not condone the lifestyle”. Buddy, wearing a stupid hockey jersey that says “Dino Costa Radio” is a lifestyle. Moaning about cigars and craft beers (Dr. Freud would have a field day with the former) is a lifestyle. Ripping off Dice Clay’s act is a lifestyle. Being gay is no more a lifestyle than being tall. Congrats on the whole faith / believing in the Easter Bunny thing, but I’d argue that’s your choice (a wildly popular choice that’s protected under the law and upheld, if not fully encouraged, throughout our culture). That particular “scene” — the one you’re “into” — apparently gives you license to call the sex acts of others “skin-crawling”, if not armageddon-inspiring.
Don’t worry, Dino. I have no intention of ignoring you. One of these days you might even end up on the radar of someone with the wide audience you so desperately covet. When that day arrives, the blowjob videos won’t seem nearly as worrisome by comparison.
I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!! You have a seat at my table weather you suck on titties or cock any day of the week! PLEASE keep listening to my show, visiting my website, your consumption of the ‘DINO BRAND’ is so appreciated by me and the millions who latch onto the show each and every day. Keep up the great work!
Incredible. Dino Costa refuses to move out of the stone age.
Who still watches porn on “tapes”?
Who the fuck is Dino Costa? Seriously, I have absolutely never heard of the man. And it seems to me the man doth protests a little too much.
“You have a seat at my table weather (sic) you suck on titties or cock any day of the week!”
Thanks, DC. That sort of attitude will serve you well in your next gig — greeter at Golden Corral.
Never heard of this guy either but see that he has 3k Twitter followers which is the equivalent of any 10th grader. With his views any delusions of upward mobility will be surely be truncated. He better keep his lil mouth shut because if Mel or Howard hear about this rhetoric, they’ll send this good ole boy back to the hole he crawled out of.
