Ok, Then!

This is a little weird. According to the rules of the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Association, each softball team is limited to two heterosexual men in order to qualify for the Gay Softball World Series.
Um, not for nothing, but why even allow two? I've played enough softball to know that sexual preference has nothing to do with ability to play the damned game. Goodness knows, if being gay would have made me a better hitter, criminy, I would have been the gayest man on the planet.
It seems pretty simple: the rule's idiotic unless you're running a social league, in which case, trash it anyway and let the teams be who they are. Hell, if a team comprised of entirely heterosexual men decided to join, that would be a) their choice and b) a great way to promote tolerance and understanding on both sides.
