Mason Darrow has been embraced by the Princeton football team since he told them he’s gay. He has decided to come out publicly in the days before the season opener. It's a different strategy from what is normally suggsted -- that an athlete wait until the offseason. We examine Darrow's story and how it has unified his team and made him truly happy for the first time.

We also look at a survey showing 34 of 35 NHL players would accept a gay teammate. So why doesn't anyone come out?
