Robbie Rogers Unretires, Signs with L.A. Galaxy: U.S. international Robbie Rogers, who retired from pro soccer in February after revealing in a blog post that he's gay, has signed with the L.A. Galaxy. Speaking to a group of LGBT teens at a Nike event a month later changed his mind about retirement, he said. "That Nike camp made me feel a little soft," said Rogers, 26. "It taught me I needed to man up a little bit. It's easy to play a sport that you love and be a role model for people. It's a perfect situation for me." The former Leeds United player will be on the active roster for tonight's game against Seattle. "His gay legacy will be significant -- he'll go down in history as the first to play in a game," said Jim Buzinski of Outsports.Com.
