PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"Jason Collins (NBA, Wizards) comes ..."
I know we have a host of 'why is this important?' responses lurking in wait here, so let's get to the reason they'll need to ignore. He's the first active male athlete to declare his sexuality. All the others came out after they were finished playing. So this is going to be the first immediate test of just how homophobic the NBA is -- when many of the players emerge from a culture where telling someone their actions are gay is the ultimate insult.

Or it would be. But Jason is a free agent this offseason: 34, an aging center from the Wizards. Is every team going to use that as an excuse to not sign him? Possibly not. But couple it with this announcement, and...

Silent collusion would not surprise me. And if he's still playing in November, nor would the world's hardest flagrant fouls. Which doesn't even begin to cover the fan reactions as he travels to red states and -- let's not leave this out -- Charlotte.

What's the other direct line to Jackie Robinson? The possibility of having status as The First turn into record as The First Victim.

Good luck, Jason. Throw punches back.
