Believe it or not, gays like sports too! And now they have a safe place to watch the victories and failures of their favorite teams without some jerk spoiling the fun. A gay sports bar called Hi Tops recently opened in the Castro and is now getting national attention after a celebratory male-on-male smooch found its way into Sports Illustrated. Watch NBC Bay Area’s story about it all above (cute bartender who loves his mom included).

(Editor’s note: The NBC Bay Area video seems to be a little fussy today. If you are getting the spiral up above, go watch the video on their site.)
