Mother's Day 2013
My Mom passed away at home, but under hospice care, on May 12th of ‘10, a few days after Mother’s Day of that year. I went down to Florida to spend that weekend with her, before having to head out on a long business trip. She was in her final days of battling Alzheimer’s, so I have no idea if she knew I was there, nor did I realize it would be the last day I would see her. ...

Martina Navratilova: Times Are Changing →
Any revolution starts with a small step. As I see it, this one started with Vikings punter Chris Kluwe and his R-rated (but darn smart and funny) editorial on Deadspin last year. That was a catalyst because it then became clear: Straight players were standing in support of gays in general — and their gay teammates, whoever they might be. Those gay athletes might have been deeply closeted, but...

Martina Navratilova came out publicly in 1981
That’s not to diminish what Jason Collins has done in any way, but rather to remind everyone that there are others who have taken the same courageous steps as he has.
