2 Remarks

  1. On the other hand you should go to the Huffington post and see the comments and tweets section. It is pretty nasty stuff. It is so sad. They even have an article from one of the players saying he is scared to be in the shower with someone like that. What is wrong with these people? I just don’t get it.

  2. By the way, it is going to take a team owner with the courage of the late great Walter O’Malley to recruit him…that’s when the really hard stuff begins. Coming out was only the first step in a very long process. There are some real crazies out there.
