    OMG - we can fix up Violet and Blake, they are both gay. They'd be so cute together!

    Mike Piazza beat him to that one.

    Actually, Violet Palmer has been out for 7 years; she announced her upcoming wedding. Mozel tov to the two ladies on their marriage after 20 years together.

    Kind of blows away Kenny Anderson's claim that Ms. Palmer was staring at players' asses instead of the game doesn't it?

    It ruined my theory on how she got the job, although it doesn't rule it out entirely.

    Topics like this are like a whistle calling for every conservative from the off topic board to come and post.

    A Blazer blazer?

    They probably have a registry somewhere if anyone really wants to gift them.

    It was pretty obvious. She evaluated me at a camp in Oregon City. She had a lot of great wisdom to offer about officiating. She is the Pac12 Assignor on the Women's side. I'd love to work for her. (That would mean I'd be making close to $1500 per game).

    In keeping with the spirit, I'm going to officially announce riverman is straight. Everyone I've ever met knows this but it's time to officially announce it. Where's my medal?

    I'm calling out all the NBA players who've yet to declare their heterosexuality. C'mon, be the first to announce it. It's important

    There aren't many opportunities to try and get on a ref's good side. I was serious about chipping in on getting her a wedding gift. We can use all the help we can get from the refs.

    Find the registry or I'll just send you some money for you to bake them something nice.

    Are you kidding me?

    Every player who, on being drafted, kisses his wife or girlfriend is announcing he's straight. One player kisses his boyfried and the world freaks.

    Every player who informs the world he is engaged to be married announces he's straight.

    Every player who goes to strip clubs and gets lap dances announces he's straight.

    Every player who, when being interviewed by a female reporter, puts an arm around her, something he never does with a male, is announcing he's straight.

    Every player who shows up at a hot spot with a date, or with 2 young ladies on his arms, is announcing he's straight.

    Every player who carries his new baby into the locker room to be admired is announcing he's straight, although gay men can and do father children.

    Straight people announce they are straight every day of their lives. It's just that since they think they and only they are "the norm", no one notices. They only notice when a gay person announces he/she is gay. Then they ask, why do you have to tell the world? In other words, why do you gay folks think you can behave like straight folks and announce your engagement? How dare you think you're equal?

    I want this to sound respectful but am afraid it won't. Oh well. I think you may need to find someone to read these threads for you, someone who might catch on to what people's posts intend. I didn't for a second get the impression you got.
