This shit is getting so messy.
So most of today was spent talking on the phone to homosexuals or about homosexual activities. This is not a new Wednesday feature. However, when the sports world sashays in this direction, it’s our duty to accompany it.
The story, which first appeared on the website”Miss Jia,” had a detailed account of the heartbreak and humiliation suffered by the former gay lover of an NFL player who was sick of all “the lies.” That player is, according to this anonymous individual, Atlanta Falcons fullback Ovie Mughelli. (Website has loud, annoying music.)
I spoke with Miss Jia on the phone today — nice lady! — and she is adamant that the source of the story is telling the truth. She’s posting a video interview of the scorned gay man on her site in the next couple days to prove that it’s not a bitter woman or the same email author who had Tiger Woods getting his teeth knocked out and high-tailing it to Phoenix. She claims that she put Mughelli “on blast” because she’s sick of this type of DL-ish behavior from athletes. Miss Jia said she’s not sure if Mughelli has a girlfriend, but girl answered his home phone when she tried to contact him.
I also left a message for the Falcons communications department. You know, the old “Hello, this is A.J. Daulerio from Deadspin.com, I’d like to get a comment about the online rumors that Ovie Mughelli might be gay.” The Falcons have yet to return my phone call. I also left a message for Mughelli’s publicist, but she hasn’t called back yet either.
This story is still left in big honking rumorville and the chances that Mughelli reveals the author of the original story told the truth are pretty abysmal. (A quick glance through Ovie’s online press packet sells a man who likes talking about being an NFL bachelor, what he wants in a woman and how said woman needs to “believe in God.”) Plus — how many “older men paying young athletes money in exchange for gay sex” stories are coming out of Atlanta? Plenty, but still.
The boys over at Outsports have inquired about the story as well, but won’t run with it unless the unnamed man steps forward. Outsports’ Cyd Zeigler said he did speak with the Mughelli’s publicist, who politely told him that it’s being handled by the lawyers right now. Hang tough, Miss Jia.
We’ll follow up if anything groundbreaking happens.
