Also...why is it such a big deal that this guy would be the first openly 'out' (please see the article for a laugh on these terms)NFL football player when there have certainly been many 'not out' players that just kept their personal life...personal? Leave their personal stuff where it belongs, no matter their sexual preferences. Live your life. Love football or hate it because you do or don't and not because someone gay-bashes or gay-supports but because you care that huge dudes run, kick, throw, intercept and fumble a weirdly shaped ball 100s of yards once a week for multiple months so that you can be entertained. Beyond that, just like movie stars, they are normal people doing normal people things (but probably with lots more money!).
Thanks for up-ending some strange media negativity and making it something that highlights what's actually important...recognizing that men are men are men...no matter what anyone calls "manly..." even you, eight men who not-so-publicly decried gayness and particularly gay football as an athlete, teammate, coach, or spectator as 'unmanly.'
And now, back to reality (and not the type you see on TV).
