Normally, I would say this is petty on the woman’s part, but considering Jason Collins wasted eight years of her life while out sleeping with other men, I think she is entitled to make as much money as humanly possible off this story.
If Jason Collins is going to cash out, so should she. Here is what she had to say about her upcoming book.
“Carolyn will be writing a book as she reflects on her recent life events about her former fiancé. She welcomes submitted questions from the public about what they would like to hear more on given topics that were discuss at the surface level in the interviews. Send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and Carolyn will review all of them as she begins to write.”
I might send in some questions, because there are probably things she knows that Collins doesn’t want to get out to the public. Not trying to downplay him coming out, but to ignore in the process he hurt some people wouldn’t be fair.
While Collins has acknowledge that he was engaged, I would like him to come clean on how he perpetuated that lie for so many years. If you are going to come out, come all the way out, good and bad.

Please Adam Silver, don’t call any foreign names for the Wizards! The 2013 NBA Draft is not until June 27th, and while we won’t know for certain where the Wizards will be selecting in the first round until May 21st, we do know that the Wizards own the 37th and 54th overall picks. More times than not 2nd round draft selections are overlooked and don’t have much value in the...

So a week or so after the Jason Collins announcement, the following thoughts.
1) There's around 2,500 active players in MLB, NBA and the NFL. By the commonly believed numbers for homosexuality, that means there are hundreds of closeted players, and even if you think that number is more like 1%, there's still dozens more.
Note that no one else has followed...

From Dave Zirin at The Nation:
There’s another side of this, however, that could not have escaped RGIII’s precise mind as he considered the concepts of sports and sacrifice: There is no way in heaven or hell Muhammad Ali, who is of African, Native American and Irish ancestry, would have ever accepted being called a Redskin.
