Jason Collins, who last year became the first male player in major American team sports to come out as gay, will be one of first lady Michelle Obamas guests for Tuesday nights State of the Union address, the White House announced Monday.
Mr. Collins, a former Stanford star who played for six NBA teams, including the Washington Wizards and Boston Celtics, revealed his homosexuality in a Sports Illustrated cover story last spring. Since his announcement, Mr. Collins, 35, has remained a free agent.

As what? a bench warmer?
There’s nothing better than having one’s perversion endorsed by the first lady. Her actions beg the question “What is the proper definition of a ‘first lady?’”
I personally do not measure accomplishments based on playing a game.
The Tebow haters are the only ones who caused the “distractions”. So sad when we allow the media and hateful leftists to determine what jobs people can hold
NBC is going to play up the gay thing at every opportunity
The perpetual beard.
I hear you, and it isn’t fair at all. But there it is.
What ‘accomplishment’ got him invited?
With MoocHell, I would have to say “First Ingrate”. You know....living in the White House likened to being in a “fancy Prison” and all that crap.
Near as I can tell it’s the “taking it up the poop-chute” thing.
I stand by my opinion.
I guess he has time to do a cameo on Barry’s Big State of the Union Show. It’s not like he has an NBA game or anything like that on Barry’s big night.
Michelle should keep him away from her light-in-the-loafers husband.
Maybe she is looking for support when she decides to come out. . .and decorum be darned, FL or not, its all about HER.
Ahh! Now you’re getting somewhere!
The SS might have to shoot him if he “double dribbles” on the president!
Even Christ had to flee to Egypt, Israel's ancient foe, to survive his own land.
Lawrence v. Texas
That which is not forbidden shall be mandatory.
obama gave moochelle a birthday present of staying in hawaii and munching on rug, moochlle is returning the favor by giving him long john silver for his state of the union debacle.
Maybe someday we’ll learn the truth about Obama, similar to how we learned lots of sordid details about the Kennedys many years after the Kennedy presidency.
But I thought the explanation that his birthday present to her, to stay in Hawaii longer without him, is covering up for something else.
No way. You’re not part of the 3%.
Well, he does have bragging rights to leading on a poor girl as his covert “beard” for many years before dumping her.
Obama can make the same claim, so how does that qualify as something “special”?
Well, homObama hasn't dumped Mooshelle yet. But I'm sure that'll happen just as soon as the 8 year royal vacation is over.
” Thats all this country now stands for. Homosex and dope.”
Sitting here at 5:30 in the morning in Japan having just gotten up ...Was just thinking the exact same thing .
Might well happen, for sure!
Nah, most of America can’t stand the fruits. The news media seems to like talking all about it though. I’m a big NBA fan and I had to Google the name when I heard about it. He was a journeyman nobody. He’s getting more media time now with his homo announcement than he ever did as a player.
Where in Japan?
I wonder which team owner Obama will lean on to pick up Collins as a player?
Firt 10 years in Tokyo area . Past 18 in southern Japan on the island of Kyushu ( Kumamoto Prefecture ) .
