Jared Max almost missed the phone call he’d been waiting for. The co-host of ESPN Radio’s “Maxed Out,” was just getting settled for his mid-morning nap when his brother called asking if he’d heard the news. “At first, I thought he was calling about [Tim] Tebow,” Max said. “And I was like, ‘I just did a two-hour show, I know about Tebow.’” But big brother wasn’t interested in talking about the Jets cutting anyone, he wanted to talk about Jason Collins. Collins, a center for the Washington Wizards, revealed he was gay in a Sports Illustrated profile. And Max’s family wanted to get their favorite sports guy’s take on the historic announcement.
