And for all of you who believed that Jason Collins will now be the subject of jokes and ridicule you should know that he’s used to it. He played last season for the Washington Wizards.
And it didn’t take long for another professional athlete to stick his foot in his mouth on the subject of homosexuality. Right after Jason Collins came out Miami Dolphins receive Mike Wallace tweeted, “All these beautiful women out here and guys want to mess with other guys?
