The first gay player: What a step for sports


It finally happened. It took way too long, but it happened. Jason Collins is gay. And cue heroic music.

So what exactly does this mean for sports? Well, a couple things. One, slurs. Hate. There will always be people against him now. Lots of the world will hate him. But he will be celebrated as much, if not more than he is hated.

Will he be Jackie Robinson caliber in history? Maybe not. Maybe so.

This isn’t too long of a post. But even so, I’m still excited.
