Good for Jason.

 

I hope this leads to mass of players coming out. We should start to except our ball players for they are, and not who we think they should be. If a Cubs player came out, I would fully support them and treat them like any other ball player. If he can hit and field a baseball, then I'll take him. Who cares what he does in his personal time.

 

Congrats Jason Collins. What you did took a lot of guts.

hopefully the pouring out of support he's received from everybody other than idiots like Mike Wallace will encourage other players in various sports to come out.  It's great that somebody viewed as a consummate professional and, while no star, a great roleplayer on a number of teams that went deep into the playoffs.

 

Also: His backup in high school?  Jason Segal
