Yes, I told Morgan Webb to come out

Yeah, I'm the one who did it. I'm the one that gave Morgan Webb the piece of advice that changed her (and ultimately her girlfriend Blair Butler's) life. Sue me, it's legal here.

For those not in the know, here's the an excerpt from the NintendoLand Note (they're gonna change the name, I hear)...

...Morgan Webb, X-Play co-host and senior segment producer, openly admitted to being gay yesterday evening on an live edition of the popular game news and review show... when asked by co-host and friend Adam Sessler what gave her and [G4 contributor and girlfriend] Blair Butler the courage to "come out of the save room" (as Sessler put it), Webb replied "I've been talking a lot with an old friend...and he told me to just for it if I really believe in it. I'm really greatful to him, and I just want to thank you, Alex!

Yeah, the Alex she was talking about was little-ol-me. A little known fact is that Morgan is one of my most treasured friends, along with Adam. I met them both at a WWE life event a few years ago (they were there, I guess, to get some deets for SmackDown! v. RAW). They talked to me (everyone else refered them to me, you know I'm a gamer at heart), we started hanging out, and I actually dated Morgan for a few weeks (it ended perfectly fine, don't worry). We've been good friends ever since.

For those who are curious, Morgan first showed signs of her being a ladykiller a few months ago, it's a funny story, actually. We were all hanging out at one of our usual Melee sessions (Adam's Luigi kicks Ken's ass and you tourney-folk know it), and she started flirting with Sindel (I don't think Sindy ever caught on, but Pikachu did and made fun of her about it for a few hours). Anyway, I asked her about it, and she told me that she was gay. From then on we just talked a lot about her future and her options, and I told her to just go with it if it's what she wanted. The next day, she did it live on X-Play, along with Blair (I'm only friendly with her, never really got to talk, but I hear she's funny).

Well, I just want to say that I'm proud of you, Morgan, and I hope that you and Blair are happy together. Here's the best, from the first family of NintendoLand.

Gay (the happy way),
