Olympic freestyle skiing silver medalist Gus Kenworthy came out  as gay and it went better than he had expected.

"And to think I was nervous about what type of feedback I was gonna get after my story came out this morning," he wrote on Facebook. "I am truly blown away by the amount of love and support that I've been receiving! Thank you all so much for your kind words, I've never felt happier to be me! Love y'all."

We discuss Kenworthy's coming out with Chris French of Gay Ski Bums, who was stoked by a high-profile skier coming out.

We also discuss New York Mets star Daniel Murphy, who disagrees with the "gay lifestyle."
