I've decided I had more to say about this gays in sports thing.

I have wonder why its so bad to have a gay baseball, basketball, (insert ball of choice here)-ball player. Is it because the game is so physical that you don't think gay men and women can compete in them? Is it because you think we are to be relegated to figure skating, gymnastics, and diving? Is it because we're not supposed to like sports and supposed to be into interior decorating and showtunes.

Are people like Jim Litke so scared that their image of gay men is going to shattered if a baseball player (or any other sports player for that matter) came out of the closet? They just need to get a grip and get over their preconceived notions of what a gay man should act like adn talk like and be like.

Get over yourselves. I hope that if a player does come out that his record is so outstanding and amazing that no one is really going to care about his sexuality but care about the work that he has already accomplished. That is my hope.
