John Kerry says Dennis Rodman is no diplomat

Former Detroit Pistons star, Dennis Rodman recently made a trip to North Korea and took in an exhibition basketball game with dictator Kim Jong Un.

No matter what Rodman says, that trip was far from a political junket even though he spent time with the reclusive leader,something not many get to .

United States Secretary of State, John Kerry, didn't seem to thrilled with the trip and didn't give Rodman any credit for his so called breakthrough.

Kerry said today that the former Bad Boy “was a great basketball player, and as a diplomat, he was a great basketball player.”

“That’s where we’ll leave it,” he told NBC News in an interview in Qatar.  

I know our government is at odds with North Korea, but Kerry should loosen up a little.

Verlander says he would accept a gay teammate

During an interview with CNN's Carol Costello, Detroit Tigers pitcher, Justin Verlander, said that he would "absolutely" accept an openly gay player on his team.

"I wouldn't mind it," Verlander added.

While some players in the major professional sports have reservations about having a gay teammate, it's almost a breath of fresh air to hear one of baseball's big names to say he'd welcome a gay teammate. I still don't think anyone is ready to face it head on no matter how they speak on the subject.

Verlander went on to say that he's "pretty sure" that there are gay players currently playing in the majors and that the Tigers are equipped to have a gay player in the clubhouse.

"I'm sure there are," Verlander said when asked if there are currently gay MLB players. "I think as with any sport, a gay player would be hesitant to come out, but the sheer number says there absolutely is."

"Yeah, I don't see why not, given the right situation, and a team that's a family atmosphere, and I feel like we have that atmosphere here. I don't think one of our players would be scared to come out. We got 25 guys, it's a family, and our goal is to win a World Series. What your sexual orientation is, I don't see how that affects the ultimate goal of our family.

I agree with what he's saying but he doesn't speak for the rest of his teammates who might feel differently about it. It really shouldn't matter as long as he would be helping your team compete an win championships while performing at a high level. Right now it won't be accepted and I'm pretty sure we're a long way off from seeing a player come out.

Von Miller says Broncos will win the Super Bowl

The NFL Draft  and free agency hasn't even kicked in and Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller is already talking about winning the Super Bowl.

Not do much of him being cocky, but it's more of a dedication to his cousin who was in a car accident according to the Denver Post's Mark Kiszla.

“I fully believe in the Broncos winning the Super Bowl and am fully committed to it,” Miller said Tuesday, during a telephone interview. That was the whole feeling behind this guarantee. It wasn't because I felt all cocky," Miller continued. "This is bigger than me. This is all about my little cousin coming back from a serious accident."
