Another Sports First

Derrick Gordon had something to say today.  A starting guard for the University of Massachusetts, Gordon  is now the first active male Division I NCAA basketball player to come out as gay.   Asked by ESPN how he feels about going to opposing arenas now that he's broken this news, Gordon said,
"Hopefully I'll finally see a gay flag in the stands, which I ain't never seen before."

Well then.  You can reward Gordon for his bravery by flying the flag when he plays.  The UMass Minutemen are in the Atlantic 10 conference, which includes schools from Philadelphia to St. Louis.  Go to a game--even if you don't know a rebound from a rebate.
