Super Bowl

Some Philadelphia Football Fans Mistakenly Walked Into A Leather Bar (Guess The Bar's Name)

Some Eagles fans got a surprise when they walked into a gay bar instead of a sports bar.

While looking for a place to hang out for the Super Bowl, some visiting Eagles fans walked into the Minneapolis bar called the Eagle Bolt. Apparently, some people thought the bar was an Eagles themed sports bar and others chose the bar just because Eagle was in the name.

‘We were just walking around as we were looking for a bar,’ one patron told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

‘I said we’re stopping there, it says Eagle.’

Of course, these visitors quickly found out there were more bears than Eagles in the joint.





















Thankfully though, there was no conflict once the locals and the visitors realized what was up. In fact, the mix up was almost not worthy of noting (other than for a few laughs).

As Cyd Zeigler at Out Sports said:

"You don’t have to be gay to watch the Super Bowl in a gay bar. Heck, you don’t have to be a football fan either."

"You just have to be cool, and it sounds like a bunch of cool Eagles fans had the night of their lives in a gay bar called Eagle."

Bar owner Ed Hopkins agreed and said that things like this should be this simple. So what if it’s a gay bar? As long as there’s a tv screen playing the Super Bowl, the more the merrier.

“It assumes there is something wrong with realizing you are in a gay bar,” he said. “The people in tonight enjoyed being in our place.”

“The Eagles fans were very rowdy and fun. We enjoyed having them in our establishment.”

“The Super Bowl is supposed to bring everyone together that loves football. That is how the Eagle felt tonight.”

Coca-Cola Super Bowl Ad Celebrates LGBTQ+ Inclusivity

There are three things I like about the Super Bowl.

  1. The array of foods I get to devour
  2. Whoever is performing the Half-Time Show (still waiting for another surprise Missy Elliot moment)
  3. Commercials that leave me with a WTF moment from laughter or heart-warming messages

Needless to say, I will be a Super Bowl party this Sunday, trolling Instagram, stuffing my face, and waiting for JT (and maybe Missy?)—but in between, I will definitely find the enjoyment in commercials like the one Coca-Cola just shared.

In anticipation of Super Bowl LII, Coca-Cola released an ad that will run during the fourth quarter of the game on Sunday, February 4th.

The ad, which depicts folks from all walks of life (ability, gender identity, race, religion, sexuality) over a poem “The Wonder of Us”. The commercial celebrates diversity and even includes gender non-binary individuals and a same-sex couple.

On their video, Coca-Cola mentions:

There's no one quite like you. Or her. Or him. Or them. The world is filled with over 7 billion unique yous who are all special in their own ways. And while we're different, there's a Coke for every single one of us. Whether it be in a glass bottle, or a mini, or an ice-cold Coke Life, or a Coke Zero sugar in a can, there's a refreshing way to Enjoy Yours.

One of those moments when you realize that somewhere, someone is doing something right.



Here are the moving words from the poem:

There’s a Coke for he, and she,

and her, and me, and them.

There’s a different Coke for all of us––

Especially one for him.


No feet have wandered where you’ve walked, 

No eyes saw what you’ve seen.

No one’s lived the life you live, 

No head has held your dreams.


To act the same would be mundane— 

what a boring thing to do!

That’s why there is just one me 

and a billion unique yous.


We all have different looks and loves, 

likes and dislikes, too—

But there’s a Coke for we and us, 

and there’s a Coke for you.

This is only one of the ads that is part of the campaign “A Coke for Everyone” which will run through the 2018 Winter Olympics and the rest of the year.

Tune in to the Super Bowl on Sunday to watch this and other great ads that will have people talking at the water cooler on Monday.
