How is this not a story? You just said it, he's the first openly gay, active athlete in the US. It's a huge step towards accepting homosexuality when someone finally has the courage to come out in a homophobic, testosterone filled environment. Glad to see all the support from other athletes and sad, but not surprised, to see a few athletes (and Chris Broussard) saying idiotic things in response.
