Just Checking In

Hey my friends,

How are you?

Just decided to check in and say hey and update on how things are going.

Basketball wise, i'm doing well, back to playing after almost 10 months out. I had a long rehab process and towards the end had a little setback that made me wonder if I will be able to get back to playing, but things worked out well and I got back to playing.

Sadly I was released from my team, but found a new home, a team with good people and a team that has some major goals for the future, something that is always fun to be a part of.

As for the guy I met, surprisingly we are still together, it has been 5 months and things are great. Even though we live in different countries he comes to visit me once a month. Hopefully during 2014 he will move in with me and if things work out well, I can see myself having a family with him in the near future ( a year or two).

He is a great guy, and it's the first time I feel in love with someone who is in love with me in a genuine way. Someone who is always there for me and someone that I know truly loves me. We talk all day long and it's a great feeling to have someone I can trust and someone that is always looking to talk and to be in touch and I never have that feeling of worry or those thoughts if things are serious or not.

He is already met some people from my team, mostly management who is been really nice to him and are mostly happy for me. In his next visit, someone who became a good friend of mine is getting married and we will go together to the weeding.

I just live my life on a regular way, even when he is here and we are out in the streets or anywhere else.  In a nice coincidence he even got the chance to meet my family, which totally loves him and they are all FB friends all ready, so everything is great in that area.

About professional sports, I'm pretty disappointed that Jason Collins hasn't signed anywhere yet, I don't really know if it has to do with him being gay or just him being over the hill and teams not wanting to mix those two things together, and sign someone who might be more of a headache and less of a player that can help them out.

I have no doubt that the sports world is moving forward in the aspect of the gay issue in pro sports, but I still think that there is a big difference between what the players say to the media and what they say between themselves.

In the country I play for, soccer is very big. I work with a couple of people who worked in different soccer teams, and they say that the players there are much more homophobic than any basketball player they met, and that the way they see things is more or less the way people viewed the gay issue 30 years ago.

I guess only time will tell and only actions in the end will show everyone where things stand. Without knowing names or knowing specifics, I have no doubt that there are serval gay players in the NBA, just like they are some in european basketball and in different sports, we will wait and see if they do something about it.

Hope all of you are doing well, if anyone has any questions or just wants to say something, feel free to find me through my email :

Enjoy your weekend..

Six Months Later

Hey guys,

I know it's been a long time, maybe too long, around 7 months I see, but I always say better late than never.

As for me, i'm doing good, recovering from surgery, had shoulder season ending surgery pretty much earlier in the year and working everyday to get back to the court next year.

As for my love life, met a great guy that was visiting here during the season. I will probably go meet him during the summer, he is cute and nice and a lot of fun to be around, but we are each in our own world, so don't really know how that can work out. However I will try to enjoy myself with a great guy and what ever happens happens.

Besides that, of course I was really in to the whole Jason Collins story, I think its great and I hope that he gets a contract in the league. I think it's an amazing decision to do what he did, and from the people around the NBA that I talked to said only amazing things about him.

It would be very interesting to talk to him and hear his side of the story, but I haven't put too much effort into that, but maybe will try later on.

I think my life is summer completely different than a year or two ago, or even 7 months ago that I wrote last. I'm basically out, not publicly via newspaper or website, but in every other aspect i'm completely out, don't try to hide it or anything of the sort.

I have been thinking a lot about coming out in the last year, even before the Jason Collins story, it still might happen, just have to see how a couple of things work out during the summer. Sadly enough this kind of thing still can influence how things shape up contract wise and things of that nature.

Besides that just trying to recover from the Spurs losing the finals, but what can we do, guess sometimes it's just a matter of one rebound that decides a whole season.

Guess that's it, just wanted to give you a short update and to say hey.

Feel free to email if you want to say hey or anything else.

Take care.
