THE PLANK FEBRUARY 7, 2007

Coming Out

Some refreshing news from the world of sports: John Amaechi, who played five seasons with the Utah Jazz is coming out of the closet in a new book (I would mention his college career, but the NCAA game is just so much more boring than pro ball). Very, very few athletes have announced that they are gay, and so Amaechi's memoirs will, I think, count as a first for men's professional basketball.
