This has nothing to do with writing, but...Jason Collins

My husband, like many sports fans, follows Sports Center, and I watch it with him sometimes. A couple of his shows have been discussing the ramifications of NBA player Jason Collins's recent announcement of being gay.

I asked Kevin, "What would you say if you were on one of these sports analyst shows and they asked you for your opinion?" He answered by telling me to check out the opinion expressed on ESPN by sports analyst the Chris Broussard, who is a Christian. I love the way Broussard explained it. If you are interested in hearing it (it caused a lot of controversy, as you can probably imagine), here 'tis:

He later clarified his remarks, which you can read here if you'd like.

All I gotta say: thank you for explaining, Broussard. That took a lot of courage.

P.S. I will still be posting on Friday. I just wanted to support this brave analyst; I love courageous heroes and heroines in books, but this is real live courage. I hope I can be as brave in my writing.
