Michael Sam former Missouri DE and SEC defensive player of the year has most likely become the first openly gay NFL player.
"I just want to make sure I could tell my story the way I want to tell it," Sam told the New York Times. "I just want to own my truth."
Personaly I think he is a brave man for coming out and saying this. I hope this guy suceeds and becomes a HOF'er. This is a momumental day in sports.
MOD EDIT - The previous thread sadly did get a little out of hand with some intolerance and even some pseudoscience, so we'll lock this and let it stand as the news. Again, I hope there is a day when no one gives a damn about things like this. - LSA
