Michael Sam is going to be the first openly gay football player in the NFL! But I can’t help but to reflect on what this means for his future and the future of sports. There are many emotions going through people’s minds; especially on twitter. One guy AKA, a huge hater stated via twitter (we’ll call him TP) that “Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend on TV was fucking sick! Why are you presenting this lifestyle to millions of kids out there! #ESPN” I kind of got sick to my stomach and wanted to respond, but I knew nothing would come of it. Many people are not going to support the Rams decision but hopefully being gay isn’t an issue after he starts. Michael Sam is making history by taking a stand. MLK said “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.” Michael Sam did something many wanted to but couldn’t. Congrats Mike and GOOD LUCK in the NFL!!!
