Gay Hockey Teen Really 40-Something 

Gay Hockey Teen Really 40-Something

A teenage gay hockey player from Minnesota whose blog started to get attention after he was featured on Outsports.com has admitted to really being a late-40-something man, according to an editor with the website.

Outsports writer Jim Buzinski says the blogger's story started to unravel when he "fell in love with Jimmy, a contributor to his blog." He says the blogger (referred to by Outsports as Mikey) maintained in three separate e-mails that he could prove he really was a teenager but then failed to reply to all follow-up correspondence.

Outsports featured "A Gay Hockey Kid's Life" in December with the disclaimer that though the website didn't know Mikey, editors had "corresponded with him enough to believe he is who he says he is."

But after the blog started to take off and Mikey began corresponding with writers and contributors -- and formed a close relationship with contributor Jimmy -- he admitted to the writer and to the owners of the server which hosted his blog that he was a fake.

Days later, the blog was shut down.
