I am a HUGE sports fan, but this whole Collins affair has really turned me off. I’m beginning to re-think my sports “addiction”.

I made the comment on a site that I go on that I don’t care about Collins’ orientation, and was called a name by one poster, and saw that it was generally accepted and praised by just about every other poster on that site.

I love sports. Love to play them, love to watch them...but we are lifting these guys up to some level of worship. I don’t do that personally, but we as a society do that. It’s really turned me off.

We all have different interests. I enjoy horse racing and the Kentucky Derby is a phenomenal event, a true American institution. That is this weekend; however, that event won't be touched in comparison to a fringe player admitting he likes other men's body parts. I understand the desire for some to discuss the gay athlete situation but anyone who questions it automatically is portrayed in a negative light. That isn't discussion, it is brainwashing.

You and me both. The whole professional sports thing is really starting to disgust me. And, waking up to Mike and Mike on ESPN radio this morning, this was seemingly the entire first hour of the show.

Just sick of it.

Nor do I, and I have one question for the Jason Collinses of the world:

If it's none of my business, why are you telling me about it?
