I woke up to news that my favourite player disagrees with my “lifestyle” I was a little taken aback with such a bold and seeming unprofessional statement so early in the morning.
I have a Murphy poster in my dining room, in a house that I share with my partner, who happens to be another woman.
I do not expect everyone to approve of my relationship, but it’s certainly not a lifestyle. My mets fandom is far more obvious than my sexuality.
I was raised that if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. This public statement of opinion is bordering on John Rocker territory. When you get paid millions to play for perhaps the most diverse place in the world, keeping opinions away from the media might have been the way to go.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and beliefs. My belief is there’s a time and a place, and this one wasn’t so hot.
Never the less, I will continue to root for the Mets, for murph to succeed, and continue to bleed orange and blue!
For all the gay closeted baseball fans like my younger self to know, it does get better!
