This Week's Tease

Yes, I did notice the story about a minor-league baseball player coming out as gay over the weekend. He plays, after all, for one of the farm clubs of our local Brewers, so the Milwaukee media have been on the story, after a fashion. (Since Mr. Denson plays for the team in Helena, Montana, where none of the Milwaukee media have reporters, much of the coverage has been of the variety where a reporter solicits reactions from passers-by.) And I read about Britain's first openly gay rugby star, as well.

But with the early, disappointing end to Michael Sam's career this week, it hardly seems like a good time for a Hooray For Gays In Sports cartoon. So it's back to that tired old topic of resistance to marriage equality.
