Ladies and gentlemen, Gene Wojciechowski
:Tim Hardaway hates gay people. I hate asparagus. You hate Lindsay Lohan ring tones. This is important why?
I think the difference is that no one ever robbed asparagus, severely beat asparagus, tied asparagus to a fence post and left asparagus to die.This is no longer about alternative lifestyles, or whatever the hell euphemism nervous people use to describe gays.
I think the word is "gay."I'm not naïve enough to believe homosexuality in sports isn't an issue, but it no longer is the issue. Those days are gone. That's why Amaechi is no pioneer and Hardaway is barely a footnote.
That's why there are so many openly gay male athletes currently playing in the three major sports. Because it's totally cool now. Tim Hardaway, you silly anachronism!I don't need any more heartfelt disclosures from the Amaechis of the world. Been there, read that. That's because we live in different, more enlightened times now. Perfect? No. Better? Yes.
It's not my fault Hardaway didn't get the memo.
In closing, I would just like to say that I hate it when people say "didn't get the memo
