This past week a Colorado State committee passed a Senate Bill 11, which will allow gay couples to form civil unions. While the bill must go through a number of steps before ultimately reaching the governor’s desk in March, there’s no doubt that equal rights for gay and lesbian couples in the state of Colorado are on the upswing. Showing his support for this movement is Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried, who recently appeared in a One-Colorado.org civil union advocacy video with his with his two mothers. No matter what side of the argument you fall on, it’s important to acknowledge Faried’s willingness to stand up for what he believes in, especially given the controversy surrounding this particular issue.
In other news, the Denver Post’s Chris Dempsey is reporting Timofey Mozgov is “unlikely to be with the Nuggets” in less than a month. We’ve heard trade rumors surrounding Mozgov for quite some time now, but this type of definitive language suggests his departure from the Nuggets is more imminent than we may have suspected.
