Bird, who said she realized she was gay when she was a star player at the University of CT, will make her record-tying 10th WNBA All-Star Game appearance Saturday. "That was never the case for me".

"It's happening when it's happening because that's what feels right", Bird told ESPN. For now, I'd much rather write about nearly anything else, including all of my awkward interactions with Sue Bird.

Bird, who began dating Rapinoe in the fall, said she realized she was gay while at UConn, according to the story. Bird, though, said that her decision had "nothing to do with Megan", but was "something I've been on the verge of doing for a long time". I have to be true to that. "I don't feel like I've not lived my life".

While Bird called Rapinoe her go-to person for advice, she said it isn't because of her that she is coming out now.

"I'm gay. Megan's my girlfriend ..."

The sweet picture of the princess was taken by her mother, a keen photographer, at their home in rural Norfolk, Anmer Hall. Prince George is third in line to the throne, behind his grandfather, Prince Charles, and his father Prince William .

"This actually has nothing to do with Megan, in terms of how free I feel to talk about it", Bird says. "It was as if all the emotion - everything that I had put to the side for that month - just hit me in one moment". She is also "a revered teammate" and "a fan favorite from coast to coast", the article notes. "She's just so level-headed".

But these moments, these stories, these treasures that I have carried with me from IN to Minnesota to OH to CT, have melded together to create a time capsule for the child I used to be, the one who wanted nothing more than to hear their basketball hero say the words, "Me too".

"And then I just didn't do it". Once she figured it out, it became a "nonissue", she said.

WNBA All-Star Sue Bird came out gay in an ESPN interview released Thursday. I was an honorary Storm captain both times, trekking out to the middle of the court wearing the shooting jacket that I bought after saving my two-dollar-per-week allowance for months.

"Sue and "controversy" never mixed", Swin Cash told ESPN.
