Learn More About (Presumed) Future NFL Player, Michael Sam

Michael Sam
If you’re one who follows American sports, or even just the stateside mainstream media, you’ve likely already heard about Michael Sam (PeekYou profile here); the All-American defensive lineman from the University of Missouri, and top NFL prospect, who this weekend publicly came out as gay.

Sam said, in an interview with ESPN that aired on Sunday, “I came to tell the world I’m an openly proud gay man.”

If he is drafted to the NFL in May, as is currently expected, he will be the first openly gay player in the history of the league (as well as being a trailblazer, in this regard, in all major American sports). Sam added, “I understand how big this is.”

While we believe that this sort of thing shouldn’t be a big deal (or even, for that matter, anyone’s business), we also acknowledge that as of today it is, and we commend and celebrate Sam’s courage.
