Robbie Rogers, the first openly gay MLS player, paid a visit to CBS This Morning to talk to Gayle King, Charlie Rose, and Norah O'Donnell about hiding in the closet, his decision to come out and return to football, what it's like for gay athletes in the locker room, and whether it will be better for them in the future (it will!).

  5. Everyone ignore Alan Brickman. He's just an alias of our resident troll Rick.

  6. It is very cool to watch Robbie rise up and play again. This is his time and I look forward to great things for him and for the advancement of gay folks in sports.

  7. He is such a handsome guy. I hope he meets another guy as good as him and falls head over heels. He's young and deserves to have kids.

  8. @Mike Ryan,

    He deserves kids? That's a bit presumptuous don't you think? Not every gay man wants kids! No offense.

  9. @Mike Ryan,

    It also begs the question that homely gays don't deserve to be happy with another guy and have kids. I think I get what you're after, but gay culture has a thing about only pretty guys need apply. I'm not trying to be catty; believe me, I struggle with that concept all the time. But, when I read a comment like that, it crawls under my skin.

  10. Such a sunny face. Makes me happy just to see it.

  11. He looks very, very happy and contented. I hope he has a successful season. And I doubt he'll spend many Saturday nights alone!

  12. I'm just so grateful that he came out on his own terms and that he comes across as an articulate likeable person. Same with Jason Collins.

  13. Crap, I could stare into those eyes all day.

  14. As nice as it is to see and hear Robbie interviewed I've just gotta say that I hate this morning show format.

    Three or four minutes of questions squeezed in between traffic, weather, and the rest of the daily morning show nonsense on something this monumentally important to Robbie, to gay kids, gay athletes, most of the gay community just trivializes this milestone for straight middle America consumption.

    Please don't do any more of these Robbie. You deserve better.

  15. I agree with Ryan. Some people should procreate, Robbie is one of them.
