Maybe ESPN should stick to reporting on actual sports stories, not when and where an openly gay athlete is showering!

Yesterday, reporter Josina Anderson felt the need to disclose what one of Michael Sam’s teammates told her about what’s going on in the locker room.

According to Anderson, Sam has been hanging back after practice and not showering with the rest of the Rams squad.

The report had a lot of people calling foul on Anderson and ESPN, including St. Louis defensive end Chris Long, who thought what the cable network did was completely inappropriate.

He’s right.

ESPN is now issuing an apology, saying:

"ESPN regrets the manner in which we presented our report. Clearly yesterday we collectively failed to meet the standards we have set in reporting on LGBT-related topics in sports.”

You sure did.

You want to talk about how many sacks, Michael is making in a game, go for it.

You want to criticize him for clocking a slow 40-yard dash at the combine, that's fair.

But you wouldn’t discuss how any other NFL player showers so why bring it up when discussing Michael Sam?

Hopefully ESPN has learned their lesson.
