Everybody was so concerned that Jason Collins would be blackballed after coming out as the first gay NBA player. But that turns out to be utter nonsense. True, Jason has yet to be signed by any of the thirty NBA franchises this offseason, many of whom are scraping the bottom of the international round ball barrel to fill out their rosters, but that’s only because Jason’s life is now consumed with another sport. Jason joined a gay kickball league in Hollywood because he’s gay and he fucking loves kickball. From what I can tell, the game is basically softball, but you kick a rubber ball instead of hitting it with a bat, with the object being to show how poorly Jason Collins catches a fly ball. When the ball tags his nuts, you win. I mean, you really win. Jason says he’s not committed to the gay kickball league and finding a new job with an NBA team remains a top priority. For their part, NBA teams keep mumbling the phrase ‘no homo’ and talking up gay kickball.

After Jason Collins came out in an interview with Sports Illustrated this week, it was only a matter of time before an ex or two came forward to play either the “I had no idea” or “I always knew something was fishy” cards. Former WNBA player Carolyn Moos is the first and probably most prominent, because she dated Collins for seven years and was engaged to him before he suddenly broke it off in 2009.
Needless to say, she’s a little shocked.
“It’s very emotional for me as a woman to have invested 8 years in my dream to have a husband, soul mate, and best friend in him. So this is all hard to understand.” (TMZ)
But she wishes Collins nothing but happiness, and she’s long since found another man to make her happy. In fact, right after she spoke to TMZ, they went shopping for new outfits before they hit the club and danced so much that he was too tired to have sex.

Okay, unlike my childish nincompoopish thoughts on Harry Potter, Wizards center Jason Collins really actually is gay. He came out officially today, maybe waiting for the shock of the Lakers taking it in the ass from San Antonio before dropping his own gay bombshell (that was a reach, but anything for a Lakers rip). As the first openly gay active NBA player, Jason was supported by NFL offensive lineman Kwame Harris, who came out shortly after his early recent retirement from the league. Both men played college ball at Stanford, America’s premiere institution for gay scholar athletes. How will this affect the future of NBA basketball? Expect even fewer passes to the white guys.
