Saint Elsewhere

Generally speaking, I'm no fan of patting people on the back for just being decent. But when it comes to professional sports, you gotta appreciate a guy like New Orleans Saints linebacker Scott Fujita, who took the time to speak out in support of this week's National Equality March in Washington: "I think for me it was a cause that I truly believe in. By in large in this country the issue of gay rights and equality should be past the point of debate. Really, there should be no debate anymore. For me, in my small platform as a professional football player, I understand that my time in the spotlight is probably limited. The more times you have to lend your name to a cause you believe in, you should do that." (Read the full interview via The Huffington Post HERE.)
