    Openly gay Jason Colllins: 'Happy to start conversation'

    For the first time since Monday's historic announcement, NBA Center Jason Collins is speaking out.

    Collins said he appreciates the outpouring of support that he's received since announcing he is gay. He told ABC's "Good Morning America" that he believes people are ready to support an openly gay basketball player.

    Now that Jason Collins has made history as the first active player in any of the four major U.S. professional sports leagues to come out as gay, the 7-foot center is facing another big step. Collins is a free agent and wants to keep playing.

    Now it's time to find out if an NBA team is ready for him.

    Man loses life savings playing carnival game

    Most of us have probably been in this next guy's shoes.

    Henry Gribbohm of New Hampshire was trying to win a game at a carnival when things didn't turn out as planned. He lost his entire Life savings-- $2,600 dollars--on a carnival game, and all he has to show for it is a stuffed banana with dreadlocks.

    The game was called tubs of fun where contestants toss balls into a tub. Henry made all of his practice shots, but when he started playing for prizes, he didn't make it. After spending $300, Henry went back home to get $2300.

    Henry said he went back the next day to complain, and the man running the game gave him back $600. Henry split with the banana and the cash, and filed a report with Manchester PD. Police said they're investigating to determine if there was any fraud.

    It wasn't long before players started jumping in. The linesman has now been given a lifetime ban from officiating. The official stated the player had made a derogatory comment about his officiating.
