The big sports news of the day is not the Olympics, nor even the suspension of the college basketball player who assaulted a loud-mouthed fan. It is the Missouri football senior who has “come out.” Since the guy is likely to be drafted anywhere between the second through the fourth round, he would be the first “openly gay” player in the NFL, and media types are breathless with excitement. I’m just sorry that no team will take a chance on him now–not because they are “anti-gay,” but because he would create too much of a “circus.”

After all, that’s the reason given that Tim Tebow is out of the league.
