Tom Semioli: Sports Marketing and the Struggle for Gay Rights: Made for Each Other!
Huffington Post Sports - almost 5 years
Sports, in particular baseball, is about to give itself a huge, public pat on the back with the theatrical release of 42, a highly anticipated biographical film on the life of Jackie Robinson -- the first African American to play Major League Baseball in the modern era, and, of course, one of the most important civil rights champions of the 20th century. In an American culture which primarily worships celebrity for the sake of celebrity, this is a good thing. Jackie Robinson changed America for the better through his actions on and off the field. Though we still live in a country plagued with racism, as evidenced by the undeniable vitriol spread on every conceivable communicative platform solely based on the skin color of President Barack Obama, Robinson's heroics, along with those of his supportive teammates and fans, is a tale worth retelling. You do not have to give a hoot about baseball to have been affected by the courage, determination, and sacrifices made by Jack Roo...

Ian Carey: When Will We See Openly Gay Players in the MLB, NFL, NBA and NHL?
Huffington Post Sports - over 5 years
"TU ERES MARICON" was the phrase printed on Yunel Escobar's eye black that has upset so many, resulted in a three game suspension for the Blue Jays shortstop, and opened up discussion about the acceptance of gays in sports. If you wanted to count on your fingers how many openly gay athletes there are in the NHL, MLB, NFL, or NBA you could do it while wearing mittens, there are none. With it being estimated that 10 percent of the population is gay, the fact that there is not one openly gay athlete in any of these leagues has led many to the conclusion that gay athletes in these sports are afraid of coming out. John Amaechi is a former NBA player who waited until his career was over to come out and announce he is gay. When asked how come he didn't come out during his playing days and how he thought his teammates and the league would react to an openly gay player Amaechi stated "It would be like an alien dropping down from space. There'd be fear, then panic: they just w...

An Unhappy Split
Fan 590 - almost 6 years
10:42PM Eastern The Blue Jays almost dug themselves out of a three-run hole in Anaheim Sunday, but just couldn’t push that final run across, falling to the Angels but winding up with a split of a four-game series on the road against what will wind up being one of the better teams in baseball. As I said on The Twitter right after the game (you can follow me @wilnerness590, by the way), you can’t be upset with splitting a four-game series on the road, but you also can’t be happy about it after winning the first two games of the series. Drew Hutchison put together a lovely fifth starter’s start, but he goes into the record books as the first pitcher ever to cough up a home run to the Angels incarnation of Albert Pujols.  Albert ended his longest career homer drought – and the longest EVER to start a season by a player with at least 400 career big flies – by taking Hutchison deep to left in the fifth inning, a two-run shot that put the Halos up 4-1 at the time.  It was his 111th at-...

Monzo Minor: 7 Games Later, Rangers Move On
CBS New York - almost 6 years
By Brian Monzo » More Columns It took seven games. Seven hard fought games. But in the end, the Rangers defeated the Ottawa Senators to advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Rangers were the top-seeded team in the Eastern Conference, and that allowed them to have home-ice advantage if a series were to go seven games. That may be one of the biggest reasons the Blueshirts are moving on. Last night’s Game 7 was exactly what everyone thought it would be. It was low scoring and stressful for fans of both teams. As usual, Henrik Lundqvist was the Rangers’ best player, making 26 saves to preserve the 2-1 series clinching win. The game started fast, with both teams getting chances. The refs did a nice job of letting the players play and not making any weak calls almost throughout the entire game. The second period is when all the scoring happened. Rangers rookie Chris Kreider forced a turnover, allowing Derek Stepan to find Marc Staal to bury the puck. Minutes ...

PHOTOS: Kelly Osbourne Wears 7 Outfits In 1 Night
Huffington Post - almost 6 years
Hosting an awards show requires plenty of costume changes, as Anne Hathaway proved at the 2011 Oscars (with plenty of help from Rachel Zoe). But Kelly Osbourne truly stepped up to the plate as host of the NewNowNext Awards, held by Logo on Thursday night. Serving as the host as well as a nominee in the "Beyond Style" category, Kelly wore a whopping SEVEN different outfits throughout the evening -- and we actually really liked several of of them. For the red carpet, the "Fashion Police" co-host kept things simple in a metallic cocktail dress with a cowl neck. But she didn't stay in it for long, switching into (among other things) a Dorothy costume, superhero-inspired outfit (cape included!), an awesome orange maxi skirt and a rather flattering black evening gown. Kelly is know for her daring sense of style (we are, after all, talking about a 27-year-old with gray hair), but she really brought her A-game for her hosting gig. Perhaps it's because she was facing off ag...
