So yesterday morning the big news came out that Jason Collins was gay.
For those that don't know him, he is an NBA Center who has played for many teams.
Now, this is obviously a big story, as no male athlete in the four major sports has ever come out.
Now, that last sentence is very specific.
We've had big sports stars come out before (Read: Martina Navratilova). We've had current players come out (Read: Brittany Griner).
But never in the big four sports in America. For the underinformed, those being the Men's versions of Baseball, Basketball, Football and Hockey.
But waking up this morning, nothing has changed for me, and my view of sports.
Which is good I guess. Because big picture, it doesn't really matter that he's gay and a professional athlete.

PS. Did you notice that he also came out as being black? Who woulda thunk!?
