Jason Collins Comes Out of the Closet

Jason Collins is the first active player in a major men’s team sport to admit to being gay.  This courageous action might be another significant event to remove society’s bias against gays.  Good for him.

    I bet Jason Collins gets applauded now when he’s introduced. I might have to go to a Wizards game to root for him. (Last time I saw them, they was the Bullets.)

    Brian: you hanging out with the ponies and juleps this weekend?

    Nothing but good thoughts and wishes for Jason. I wonder who will be #2?

  3. Dog I’m heading up to Rochester on Saturday to visit some of my buds there, then back to Louisville, then off to St. Louis for a month.

    I’m glad there were only a few snide comments about Jason. So far so good.

    I have a gay friend whose 2nd book is coming out on June 1.

    I’m looking forward to reading it.

    Do you realize that almost 1/2 of 2013 has gone by? I guess that’s a sign of age.

      I measure time by how much of the baseball season has passed, or how many days until spring training 😉

    You’re a baseball nut!

    MS’s win, just shows how parts of this country have gone to hell and the morals of our “elected officials” mean nothing.

    Also IMO, it’s shameful that he would credit “by the grace of God” as the reason for his comeback. I have a different one that he does and mine is too busy to give a shit about MS.

  10. Back in Louisville, had a terrific time catching up with my buds in Rochester. Hope everyone is well. AP you around?

    Hey Brian…

    Yep. I just have not been feeling too well to do must commenting since my surgery.

    I saw the urologist last Wednesday the first of May and he removed the catheter from me. Stopped and had a breakfast at Denny’s than had the runs three hours later along with gas pains all in my lower abdomen.

    Say the surgeon on Thursday the second and he just checked to see how I was doing. Had lunch before seeing him and once again I had gas pains for several hours all in the lower abdomen.

    The swelling in my groin has finally gone down enough now so its not as painful as it was before. Still only eating small meals since all my organs in my lower abdomen are still swollen and very sore. It may be up too six or more weeks before all the swelling goes down and I start to feel normal again.

    Today I went out and picked up a pizza and had two pieces and now three hours later have some gas causing me problems since I still have a hard lump in my abdomen where the hernia repair was done.

    Anyway I’m still around and do try to read my daily sites even though I am not online as long as I usually am. Thanks for asking though about me, its appreciated.

    Hello too to all BC’ers as well and I hope you are all doing well and having a good week. Take care and …

    God Bless

  12. AP your body is telling you something, no Denny’s or pizza for a while, light meals, nothing too spicy or greasy!

  13. tempebev

    AP – ditto what Brian says. Treat your body carefully until you are healed inside. Then you can pig out!

    Bev: Happy Mother’s Day.

    Kristin from Moms Rising was on UP with Steve Kornacki today.

    AP: I think you need to be on a soup diet for a while. Are you much of a cook? (And hope that you recover fully and that pizza is — eventually — in your future.)

    dnd: maybe we can do a new thread with easy-ish delicious light food suggestions for AP?

    Trying to lose some weight. I should do a lot more soup and salad eating.

    No I am not a very good cook. I can fry an egg, fry a burger, heat a can of soup, pour a bowl of cereal, heat spaghetti sauce and cook the noodles, but no I am really not much of a cook.

    I tried a slow cooker once and it did not come out as it was suppose too. Still stringy and tough and ended up cooking it for close to 15 hours before it was slightly tender.

    Thanks everyone for all your kind words. I took a long walk today and the leg that hurt the most was my right leg, which by the way was the leg on the surgery side.

    Oh by the way I can heat a bowl of soup from the can as well. Hahaha…

    Take care and have a great evening.

    God Bless.
