I fail to see this as being a big deal... my immediate response was, "meh."

Obvious jokes, but probably the biggest name athlete to ever come out

A top women's college basketball/WNBA player built like an Amazon comes out as a lesbian? I wouldn't be more surprised if I woke up this morning with my forehead stapled to the carpet

Different in women's sports than men's. Besides she is hardly the first lesbian pro basketballer

I agree. A big-time female athlete coming out isn't really news at all. Doesn't she always wear suits and stuff like that? I mean, good for her, but this is akin to Richard Simmons finally admitting he's gay.

lol I figured. First thing I thought of when I read your post was, "WHAT!? Martina won like 900 Wimbeldons when tennis was at it's most popular! This chick is a WNBA player for crying out loud!"

Then I remembered that Martina hasn't even played tennis in maybe 15-20 years so it made sense. And I too now feel old.

A wnba player coming out of the closet is hardly newsworthy.

if it was a video of a WNBA player insisting she's straight, it would be better.
