Broken Giant. Get Well, Buster!

It was a painful moment when Marlin Scott Cousins sealed Wednesday’s game against the San Francisco Giants by crashing into catcher Buster Posey at home plate. Buster’s fibula snapped and he’s out for the season. According to first baseman Aubrey Huff, the atmosphere around ATT park yesterday was grim. He told Sports Illustrated: “It felt like a morgue when you walked in here today.” The baby-faced catcher is a popular Giant, both on the team and with his fans. His wholesome looks contrast with some of his edgier team mates’ styles. More on that here and here. SI‘s Anne Killion writes: “He’s their square-jawed Captain America on a goofy cartoon-strip team.” That’s one way to put it! For the rest of that article, click here.

When he’s not in the ballpark SF Giant’s pitcher Tim Lincecum looks more like a slacky hipster kid than a world class athlete. All that changes on the mound. Timmy the Kid moves like a lanky jungle cat, all energy in reserve until he unleashes his fastball. Poetry in motion and even the floppy hippy hair works. Five nothing in career starts against the As, who have lost eight straight to the Giants. For John Sheas’s article in the San Francisco Chronicle, click here.

From Teenage Ball Boy to Out Gay NBA Exec: Rick Welts of the Phoenix Suns

Rick Welts, President and CEO of Phoenix Suns

Rick Welts, President and CEO of the Phoenix Suns, is coming out. The 58-year old Welts began his career 40 years ago with the Seattle Supersonics as – no kidding – a ball boy. According to Dan Barry’s column in Sunday’s New York Times:  “Mr. Welts explained that he wants to pierce the silence that envelops the subject of homosexuality in men’s team sports.” Four decades in the closet came at a cost. When his partner passed of AIDS in 1994, he took two days off. “His secretary explained to others that a good friend of his had died. Although she and Arnie had talked many times over the years, she and her boss had never discussed who, exactly, Arnie was.” Later, he lost another long-term lover, when the man finally left him, unwilling to continue to live in the closet. That was two years ago. And now, Welts is out. Read “A Sports Executive Leaves the Safety of His Shadow Life” here.
