Megan Rapinoe: Soccer, U.S.
Midfielder Meghan Rapinoe will break from her spot on the Seattle Sounders to play for the U.S. national team. No doubt this is a win for Nike, with which Rapinoe has a lucrative endorsement deal. On her decision to discuss her sexual orientation openly, Rapinoe told Out, "I feel like sports in general are still homophobic, in the sense that not a lot of people are out. I feel everyone is really craving [for] people to come out. People want — they need — to see that there are people like me playing soccer for the good ol’ U.S. of A."
