On a new website called the Good Men Project, Henry P. Belanger talks to Boston columnist Steve Buckley. Buckley recently announced that he is gay, and says that things have not been awkward at all, even, for instance, in the locker room. Belanger asked the million-dollar question:
Why do you think no active player has come out?
I don’t know why no current player has come out. … But I don’t think it will be a big deal. It will be a big news story … but that person in my humble opinion will never have to go through what Jackie Robinson lived through.
