Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski were among the thousands who converged on Super Bowl media day Tuesday. Among the topics: gay players in the NFL, what they'll be doing on Super Bowl Sunday and how to get Kam Chancellor's attention.
An Alabama high school teacher and coach made a non-apology for an anti-gay diatribe which included a disrespectful reference to the First Lady as "fat butt Michelle Obama."
The door seems to be opening in the big four sports leagues: More athletes are speaking out in support of same-sex marriage, and leagues are penalizing those who use gay slurs.
Players coming out or supporting gay marriage are becoming active topics of discussion in the NFL, showing a shift in attitudes. All agree it would take courage to be openly gay.
