The Reading List for April 30, 2013 – Sports edition

Unless you've been living under a rock without WiFi access, you'll know that one of the biggest news stories of the past day or so is about NBA player Jason Collins coming out.

Arguably, the most interesting part of this story are the reactions from various individuals. Take for example, ESPN writer Chris Broussard's stating that a gay NBA player is a
"rebellion against God"
or this op-ed by Ari Ezra Waldman about the significance of the event and how it plays into identity politics

Or how about President Obama responding to news reporters, stating that he had spoken to Collins and couldn't be prouder.

And still on a sports tip, Vice magazine speaks with Roger Brigham, a coach at Golden Gate Wrestling Club, a gay wrestling team based in San Francisco.
