Ellen Congratulates Jason Collins: ‘When I See You I’m Gonna Hug Your Knees So Hard’ – VIDEO


Ellen congratulated Jason Collins on her show yesterday before dedicating a dance to him:

"I applaud you Jason Collins, I applaud you. That is a very brave man. I would high-five you but I don’t think I can reach you. But when I see you, I am gonna hug your knees so hard. So, so brave. Really, you’re an incredible role model. Because of you, there’s a little boy playing basketball right now who knows that he can be who he is and play the sport that he loves. Now that little boy’s only obstacle is that he’s gonna be 5’4” and terrible at basketball. But you’ve done your part."
