MY ARGUMENT THAT 'TEEN WOLF' IS THE 'JASON COLLINS STORY' OF THE 1980'S - BY JOHN JORDAN
I CAUGHT 'TEEN WOLF' (1985) ON T.V. THIS WEEKEND AND COULDN'T HELP BUT THINKING ABOUT PRO BASKETBALL PLAYER JASON COLLINS' ADMISSION THAT HE WAS GAY AND HOW HIS STORY IS EERILY SIMILAR TO THE PLIGHT OF SCOTT HOWARD (A.K.A. TEEN WOLF) IN THE MOVIE.

THE MORE I DUG INTO IT, THE MORE I WAS CONVINCED THAT 'TEEN WOLF' WAS 'THE JASON COLLINS STORY' OF THE 1980'S.
NOT CONVINCED? HERE ARE THE FACTS.

BOTH ARE BASKETBALL PLAYERS OF A BARELY PASSABLE LEVEL.

THEY CAN BOTH DUNK.

AFTER COMING OUT THEY BRING A NEW SPOTLIGHT ON THE SPORT OF BASKETBALL.

JASON COLLINS PLAYED BRIEFLY FOR THE TIMBERWOLVES… TEEN WOLF IS A TIMBERWOLF.

GENETICALLY SPEAKING… TEEN WOLF AND JASON COLLINS WOULD BE DESCRIBED AS HAVING AN ‘UNIQUE PEDIGREE’.

THE ATTENTION TEEN WOLF AND JASON COLLINS GET FROM THEIR ADMISSION GARNERS THEM BOTH ADMIRATION AND DISGUST AMONGST THEIR PEERS.

TEEN WOLF’S JERSEY NUMBER IS 42…THE SAME AS BASEBALL PLAYER JACKIE ROBINSON…       WHOM JASON COLLINS HAS BEEN FAVORABLY COMPAIRED TO

THEY ARE NOW MORE RESPECTED AND ADMIRED AFTER THEY CAME OUT.

THEY BOTH HAVE AGENTS – (TEEN WOLF) STYLES / (JASON COLLINS) ARN TELLEM.

JASON COLLINS IS SAID TO HAVE ‘COME OUT OF THE CLOSET’…. THERE’S A SCENE IN THE MOVIE
WHERE TEEN WOLF COMES OUT OF A CLOSET AT A PARTY.

WEREWOLVES HISTORICALLY HAVE BEEN USED AS A PLOT DEVICE IN THE COMMENTARY ON THE ‘DUALITY OF MAN’… JASON COLLINS IS A TWIN - A LITERAL DUALITY OF MAN.

TEEN WOLF’S FATHER TELLS HIM THAT HIS CONDITION SKIPS A GENERATION … JASON COLLINS’ YOUNGER, TWIN BROTHER IS NOT GAY.

THE RECENT ‘TEEN WOLF' SERIES ON MTV WAS SAID BY SOME CRITICS TO BE A MODERN ANALOGY OF GROWING UP AS A GAY YOUTH.

BOTH TEEN WOLF AND JASON COLLINS HAVE SURFED ON TOP OF A VAN – OK I MADE THAT ONE UP.

THEY BOTH HAD HOT, BLONDE GIRLFRIENDS FOR A WHILE.  AND, IN THE SAME SENSE, TEEN WOLF AND JASON COLLINS BOTH HAD ‘BEARDS’.

AFTER ITS INITIAL RUN, THE FILM GROSSED $33,086,661 DOMESTICALLY… JASON COLLINS CAREER SALARY IS JUST OVER 32 MILLION DOLLARS.

THEY BOTH PROVE THAT BEING WHO YOU REALLY ARE INSIDE IS A GOOD THING.
