Not exactly crazy about this push for a "gay Jackie Robinson". You would think I'd be for it...but honestly I dont care. Some gays are on fire (heh...) for anyone who is gay to come out, be proud, be responsible to the community. A pro athlete is only that for a tiny window. They should not come out JUST to come out. Other things have to factor in, like team, teammates, city, own player's level of comfort and whether or not he wants people to know every detail of his private life. The first active gay NFL player is going to have a nightmare on his hands, even if his teammates and city accept it. Imagine the Tebow circus x 1000. That is what that player and team will have to deal with.
So good luck to that poor idiot. Seriously.
