The Bent Musket Monday Morning Open Thread: Happy Memorial Day

Jeff Gross

Happy Memorial Day, everyone. Let's all take a moment today to reflect and remember the people who have given their lives in service to their country, and for the grieving families of those who were lost. If you're so inclined, feel free to share the story of anyone close to you who is serving or has served in the armed forces.

Then let's get our hands on some bbq!

Also relevant: Robbie Rogers made his LA debut last night, becoming the first openly gay MLS player to appear in a league match. MLS is been harping really hard on the whole "first active gay player in American pro sports history," although a recent article in the Atlantic indicates that Glenn Burke already did it in baseball decades ago. Whether he's the absolute first or not, it's an historic occasion and a step forward that needed to be made.

Now talk among yourselves.
