Raven Brendon Ayanbadejo is sporting a fancy new title these days: Honorary Gay. It comes compliments of GQ magazine, which bestowed the honor on the linebacker and Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe. According to GQ, the players are "honorary gays of the year" because of how they stood up in support of gay marriage earlier this year. You might recall the dustup where Ayanbadejo wanted to give away game tickets to support the campaign to legalize same-sex marriage in Maryland.

David Hart is a bit of an anomaly in the world of fashion. In an industry dominated by larger-than-life personalities, fickle taste and cutthroat politics, he prefers to play nice, stay cool and let his work do the talking. "I really appreciate all the people that I've met and the relationships I've built," said Hart, 32. "I treat people the way I like to be treated. I really respect the talent of the people I've worked with. As a result, people respect me as well. " His approach has ingratiated him with the fashion elite.

The April GQ is a special issue on "The Future of Sports." Gracing its cover is Detroit Pistons forward Grant Hill, whose unrelentingly good press raises the question whether he's actually Eddie Haskell with a jump shot: "May I pass you the ball, Mrs. Cleaver?"Profiling Rupert Murdoch's increasingly successful efforts to make professional sports another annex of his empire, Charles P. Pierce offers a winningly bilious antidote to the good-conduct-medal gush about Mr. Hill.As a former laborer in one of the darker of the great man's `D satanic mills (Mr. Pierce was a columnist for the Boston Herald when that publication was among the lesser trophies on Mr. Murdoch's mantel)

Generally, I'm not big on all these "Best of" and "Worst of" lists that seem to crop up every five minutes. You know the ones: "Top 10 Best Cities to Live In," "Twenty Worst Rock Songs of All Time," "Fifteen Dumbest Commercials," etc. But when GQ magazine came out with its list of "The Worst Sports Fans in America," I got sucked in.

There's a new men's magazine on the stands this month from Flynt Publications.No, not that kind of magazine.The premiere, 128-page issue of Code, with actor Samuel L. Jackson on the cover, offers fashion pages, literary fiction, essays and political commentary for men of color.Code's goal is to present a multifaceted image of black men. "Until now, there haven't been any images in the media that reflect black males to themselves," says Abbie Britton, Code's publications director."In the world, not in the media, black men are multifaceted human beings, bankers who listen to hip-hop and -homeboys who listen to Mozart."

Lest anyone had any doubt what a year Michael Phelps has had, behold this: GQ's Russian version just named him International Man of the Year. Phelps made the cover of Russian GQ's current issue, looking, well, rather sexy in low slung sweats, and a leather jacket over an unzipped hoodie. One pretty much notices the abs first. Ryan Lochte is no doubt seething. And girlfriend Megan Rossee must be proud, proud, proud. Wish we knew, however, what the headline says about Phelps.

Former Cleveland Browns and soon-to-be-former Denver Broncos quarterback Brady Quinn is being scrutinized for honest comments he made about Broncos teammate Tim Tebow to GQ magazine during the 2011 season.

Here's an oral history of Suggs on Tebow based on a few quotes Silver used in his article in GQ's March issue . Week 8, after the Detroit Lions beat the Broncos: “They say we were giving him a hard time because he's a Christian.

Michael Steele keeps the buzz alive. In an interview with GQ, the Republican National Committee chief states that abortion is "an individual choice," asserts that sexual orientation is innate and describes some anti-gay-marriage activism as "craziness." Now that's off the hook! At least for the GOP base. Perhaps Steele is trying to remake the Republican Party in his own image. Could be an effective big-tent strategy - if he'd pick an image and stick with it. GQ came out with the story Wednesday night, and quicker than you can say "Rush Limbaugh," Steele issued a statement that began, "I am pro-life, always have been, always will be."

IN THE city, it is only acceptable for a man to wear flip-flops if he has just come from a pedicure and he's still damp. But seriously, folks, flip-flops are for the beach or maybe for washing the car or spaniel. They are not the next big thing.

Unsuitable?The sensitive guys at GQ know how to protect tender sensibilities against attacks of tastelessness. The February issue GQ has two different covers. Subscribers, who receive the magazine in a plain white wrapper, get the naughtier version featuring the ubiquitous Dennis Rodman camping it up with the lovely Rebecca Romjin. Her bosom is camouflaged by painted hands. The body painting is by the same artist who touched up the nude Demi Moore for the now-famous Vanity Fair cover."It was a send-up of all those photo spreads of celebrities clutching their breasts," says Terry McDevitt, publicist for GQ. She says the real story is a catch-up profile of the banished basketball star.

Micha Weinblatt has an enviably short commute to work every day. Each morning about 9:30, he leaves the top floor of his parents' house in Potomac and heads to his job as founder of Crooked Monkey, a T-shirt company operated out of their low-ceilinged basement. It's a sweet gig, he admits, especially since Symcha Weinblatt doesn't require her 24-year-old son to pay for room and board or the basement office space. But Crooked Monkey is doing so well, Micha Weinblatt says, all that may soon change.
