Jason Collins shatters sport's final barrier
It’s an exciting time of the year for sports, both on a national level and locally here in Iowa.
The NBA and NHL playoffs are into the first round with plenty of exciting play to go around. The NFL just had its draft, which is an annually overblown event with respect to the upcoming season. The NCAA tournament recently concluded with a worthy and heartwarming champion in the Louisville Cardinals. In Iowa, local high school athletes are gearing up for potential conference championships and trips to state, but the most significant event has already happened, and it came from a most unexpected place.
The word “hero” is thrown around so loosely in today’s sports. We often use the word to describe terrific play or clutch performances, but in reality, rarely do we ever see and recognize true heroism in the sports world. On Monday afternoon, I found the first true sports hero that I have seen in quite some time.
