Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames. Professional athletes have to deal with stupid questions all the time, but sometimes the unexpected happens that makes it all worthwhile. Earlier this week, a TMZ reporter caught up with Minnesota Vikings superstar Adrian Peterson and asked him a very lame question about gay athletes in the NFL. He wanted Peterson’s take on whether it would be more difficult for a white player or a black player to come out as gay. As expected, Peterson had no interest in answering the question. He took the route of sarcasm instead, responding that it could be a hispanic or an asian player who comes out. And then, the situation took care of itself. The reporter took a massive spill and someone from Peterson’s entourage yelled, “Down goes Frazier!” You couldn’t have drawn it up any better. The topic of gay players in the NFL is an important one that has seen an increase in attention lately, but that doesn’t mean people have to reach for ridiculous questions about it. If you do, you might end up tripping over a parking cone and tasting concrete.
