    Israel Gutierrez (ESPN blog post)It's been incredibly difficult, to the point where I usually talk myself in circles and end up making very little sense.

    So I decided on this simple blog entry. No formalities, no restrictions, just me letting you into a portion of my life I've kept largely separate from my professional career.

    I'm gay, which plenty of people, I'm sure, have either deduced or just guessed as much over the years.

    OutsportsWhat prompted Gutierrez to take the leap is his impending marriage to his partner on Sept. 12. For those who knew of Gutierrez's engagement, it's been a curiosity to see how he would handle it. Seeing him come out publicly as gay is a great move as it will free him and his soon-to-be husband from looking over their shoulders in public.

    Always has been a favorite of mine on espn. Both cute and smart. Anyone who doesn't welcome him out is a dick.

    He's just looking for wedding presents. Did he announce where they are registered too?
