New York on out homosexualist athletes:

The first thing to understand about the lack of openly gay professional athletes is that there are openly gay professional athletes. They just don’t feel obliged to tell you. Many of their teammates know. [The inevitable Jim] Buzinski says he’s been told that “one NFL player took his partner to a teammate’s wedding in Florida and nobody cared.” […]

Why is it any more “official” to proclaim your sexuality to some old bald dude with a notebook or a microphone?

I told you this already. (When contacted, journo Will Leitch stated he hadn’t read my piece beforehand, meaning we independently arrived at the same conclusion. Outsports is, of course, always the last to know.)
