...is some nobody, 12 year basketball player that NO ONE has ever heard of-- Jason Collins-- who averages 3 points a game....



Edit: he averaged 1 point a game this last season.

pretty good question...is it a sports story?  or is a social story?  does it belong on sportscenter?  or outside the lines?

of course ESPN is gonna highlight it, but its similar to tebow imo.  build it up just to make it a bigger issue than it should.

True dat.

I feel sorry for the first poor schmuck that says anything that could even be remotely construed as critical. Jeez, can you imagine the conniption if someone was to suggest separate showers? After all we don't have co-ed showers do we? Just playing devils advocate there.

It also seems that journalists have been falling over themselves trying to get some athlete to "come out." I guess it is the en vogue crusade to prove their credentials. Who can support gay athletes the most.

I think an active professional athlete coming out is a pretty big story especially on a sports network

Remember when astronauts were our heros?

Now the media is making a hero out of a 7 ft. Center who scored 1 point a game & got 1.6 rebounds a game. smh

I seem to remember reading that he is 34 and a free agent. I am thinking the active bit might not apply very soon.

I mean...he's been gay his whole life.  He's been in showers with other men his whole life.  And shockingly, nothing happened from that and he never tried to jump anyone in the shower.  Why should there be separate showers?

No. He was engaged to a woman not too long ago.

Doesn't mean he wasn't gay then, as many gay men feel the need to marry to cover it up.  However, the point still stands.  He is gay.  He has been in showers and locker rooms with other men.  Nothing bad happened because of that.  Why would he need to be in a separate shower?

He was on a roster this past season.   May or may not be on one next

And yet in the same breath no one dares suggest that TE'O's fake girlfriend was not a ploy to hide his apparent sexuality?  Not that it really should be anyone's business but I really don't see why someone's sexual orientation or preferences should be so publicized.    If they are so intent on fuzzing out breasts and naked butts on TV why is it so important to announce to the world one's personal preference?    Please spare me the He is so courageous stuff
