He’s not the first gay guy in the NFL. He’s the first one to come out, let’s get that straight. Every team I’ve played on, there was someone… we always knew. But he was cool. That was our boy. We had to look out for him. Every team I’ve played on - five different teams - there was someone gay in the locker room.

Last Sunday, we had a very special visitor from down South in town: Kim Ferguson, middle, who’s fostered dozens of Brooklyn-bound dogs in the two years that we’ve been rescuing from her local Alabama shelter. Her family has fostered dogs through heartworm treatment and fear before putting them on transport with the faith that they’d do all right. Several of the pups who took the first step of their Badass lives and the Ferguson family home came to see her with their forever folks. We are so happy and proud of the big, Badass family that this photo shows. Some of the alumni dogs who came out to be reunited with Kim are (left to right) Casey (fka Casey Novak), Shelby, Rheinhardt and Dodo (fka Kelly Ripa). We’re so grateful to Kim and all of our Southern Foster Families - without them, our mission would be impossible.
