This is the top story on ESPN right now. It’s a good read. I watch a lot of sports, but mostly women’s sports, so I’m kinda used to having gay or bisexual players (out or not) to look to and cheer on and be inspired by. I hope he gets signed.
I can’t help but wonder about the identity of the gossip blogger who threatened to out him, or at least the outlet they work for. In the lead up to the Rio Olympics, Out Sports made a post naming all of the out athletes in the Olympics, only not all of them were publicly out. I’m not saying it’s them, but not all of these open secrets are as open as some fans or the incredibly online media types seem to think. It’s a tricky line to toe.
