Last week, Tim Tebow was released from his job as backup quarterback of the New York Jets
A few hours later, NBA veteran Jason Collins became the first active player in major professional sports to come out of the closet.
I saw this cartoon and found it to be fitting. The sports media was often critical of Tebow when he would profess his love for God. Tebow, a devout Christian, would begin every interview by thanking God. This rubbed some people the wrong way.
It was interesting when Collins, a 7 foot 12 yr journeyman, told the world that he was gay. The media applauded him. Some even called him a hero.
Collins is no hero. Nothing is wrong with Tebow.
Maybe the sports media has "overblown" it for both men?
As fans...do we care?
More importantly...do we have the right to judge?
I don't care. And I won't judge.
