Nice piece, Jake

Hard to believe that the über-conservative world of Gaelic Games in Ireland has successfully crossed the bridge of dealing with an openly gay player when footy still hasn't. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/sport/article6882842.ece

I do firmly believe that it will only take one player to come out to start a whole chain reaction - there'll be a couple of weeks of frantic discussion and then it'll become as irrelevant as it really is. And Super Mario agrees: http://www.welt.de/sport/fussball/article10829595/Mario-Gomez-raet-schwulen-Fussballern-zum-Outing.html
