Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Sheryl Swoopes comes out, endorses lesbian cruise line.

The current ESPN magazine has the whole story. ESPN's site provides excerpts: "My reason for coming out isn't to be some sort of hero. I'm just at a point in my life where I'm tired of having to pretend to be somebody I'm not. I'm tired of having to hide my feelings about the person I care about. About the person I love."

Donna Orender and Nike, with whom the three-time MVP has a shoe contract, say they're fine with it. Van Chancellor: “What she does in her personal life is her own decision. I respect everything about Sheryl.”

Me too.
