Live For Yourself

01 May


NBA vet Jason Collins announced that he is gay. He is the first active player to be public about his homosexuality…he is surely not the only one.

I applaud his courage and his willingness to be who he is. I think he is safe given the level of support he is sure to receive from the public. He is untouchable, at least publicly, by the Association and other players- they do not want that kind of press. It was only a matter of time…

This issue was covered a few months ago by an episode of Necessary Roughness, a great show that I seldom get to catch. The cable show chronicles a shrink that works with a fictional, pro football franchise. In said episode, the doctor encourages the quarterback to “come out.”

Hey, even Spike, the film director/innovator and NBA enthusiast that everyone-loves-to-hate, tweeted his support!!
