[VIDEO PICK] Robbie Rogers spent his entire life demonstrating he's a great soccer player and on Friday the 25-year-old proved he's also a brave man, with thousands of friends all over the world.

The staunch support Rogers has received since revealing via twitter that he’s gay may have surprised even the most optimistic among us.
