Aaron Ward (former NHL player - current hockey analyst with TSN) is hosting a three part series on homophobia in sports. Part one aired last night.
I don't know if the US is geo-blocked but I hope not.

I guess this is my chance to mention my nephew as many might remember, Robbie Rogers. I just realized he is in this show. He has gotten so "famous" since coming out that I can't keep up with everything he does! He is now playing for the LA Galaxy, and more importantly is very involved in gay activism.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robbie_Rogers

"In May 2013, he became the first openly gay man to compete in a top North American professional sports league when he played his first match for the Galaxy."

The below youtube is short and about his first appearance for the Galaxy. He got a standing ovation. He gives me chill bumps every time I watch it.

And on the more fun and gossipy side of things..
He is in a relationship with Greg Berlanti.

Those were really well done videos. Thanks for posting them. Will you post the last one, too? (I hope!).

Moody, your nephew is so handsome! He seems to be a very happy young man. What a beautiful smile!
