Interesting Quote: Jared Max


“Are we ready to get our sports information from someone who is gay? Well, we are about to find out. For the last 16 years, I’ve been living a free life among my close friends and family and I’ve hidden behind what is a gargantuan-sized secret here in the sports’ world.
"I am gay.”
...

“It would have to be a player of superstar status, not just a star, but a superstar to sway the momentum. Truth is, the world I grew up in and you did, was not ready for this. But today’s kids — my friends who have children — have told me it’s a different world now. ... Truth is, why should we cater to the bigots and the uneducated folks, it’s 2011?”
Max is a host of ESPN radio show. He said this was the time to do it.

This was the time to do it....AFTER Rick Welts was brave enough to do it alone. Sorry but riding on someone's coattails doesn't make you a hero.
