The president of FIFA is warning gay soccer fans not to do anything too gay at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

[Sepp Blatter] noted that the world's biggest soccer tournament will have to adjust to more than just the sweltering desert heat when it takes its party-like atmosphere to the Middle East in 2022.
