Hunk of the Day: Jason Collins

I knew it would take a lot of balls to come out as the first openly gay player in one of the major American team sports. The only question was what kind would it be? Football? Baseball? Basketball? As the world now knows, it was the last one, courtesy of NBA player Jason Collins. His cover story in Sports Illustrated, written by the man himself, was a moving study of what it took for him to be so brave. And while many of us have already gone through that journey, most of us don’t know what it’s like to do so on a national playing field. (Yes, I know it’s court, let me work the metaphor.) Congratulations to Mr. Collins – and thank you for stepping forward. See you at the Boston Pride Parade!
