    Nice eBay affiliate link. Hopefully this blog isn’t turning into every other card blog with spammy eBay affiliate links in every story.

    Haters be hate’n. No reason for it. Don’t like, don’t buy it. Each his or her own!

    why is it when arguably the best women’s basketball player of all time admitted she was gay the media paid little attention to it but when jason collins, a last option bench warmer comes out it’s all over the news and everyone is praising the guy

    James: Nope, not writing stories to revolved around links and i think that’s pretty obvious.

    Chino: In this case, this story, it doesn’t matter, and she’s not the first lesbian in the league. While some may have seen that as a selling point, I don’t think it matters. Collins was the first gay player in the NBA — or for any of the major sports. That’s a bit different.
