I'm sorry to sound like such a prissy gossiper...but I couldn't stand to not be shocked when I heard Jason Collins was gay. I mean, I suppose this is good, considering this has never really happened in sports before, and the world is becoming more accepting of gays, but considering he's over 7 feet tall & is 34 years old, I was just shocked.
I'm normally the girl to talk about the sports themselves, not the drama revolving around the players' personal lives. But, being a heterosexual young lady who adores sports and the NBA and, despite all of this, knows the patriarchal ambiance that male professional sports leagues hold, I think what Jason did was very brave of him and I applaud him for his courage.
