This is the man of the hour!

Recently, Indiana passed some legislation, stating that employees could refuse service to someone on religious grounds, which was clearly targeting the LGBT community.

On Monday, Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard let it be known that this is NOT okay and put an executive order into place which states that EVERYONE must follow the city's human rights ordinance, if the business receives government funds in some way. He also called for the state's civil rights laws to include the LGBT community "immediately."

NCAA President Mark Emmert kicked off the overall discussion, saying that he was "very concerned" about any sporting events being held there, including the Final Four, because of the discrimination in the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

This looks scary!

Tom Brady can win multiple Super Bowls, but can he jump off a cliff? The New England Patriots player looked pretty hesitant as he stepped up to the edge on Saturday, while on vacation in Costa Rica, and it looked like he wasn't going to do it anymore.

But then Gisele Bundchen basically shamed her husband into jumping, saying:

"Are you going to jump, doll?"

The jump is themed to the Superman song, which is a little silly since he seemed pretty scared! LOLz! Then again, who wouldn't be?! That's super high!

Ch-ch-check out his jump

Openly Gay Football Player Michael Sam Drops Bomb: 'I Am Not The Only Gay Person In The NFL'

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzFootballNFLMichael Sam

Michael Sam was the first openly gay football player to be selected in the NFL draft.

That is a huge milestone for the concussion-causing, overly macho sport.

But Sam isn't the only one, according to him! He said:

"I am not the only gay person in the NFL. I'm just saying there is a lot of us. I respect the players that did reach out to me and had the courage to tell me that they were also gay, but they do not have the same courage as I do to come out before I even played a down in the NFL.

Was it a risky move? Yes. But at that moment, the reason why I came out is I thought it wasn't going to be a big deal. Maybe I was naive. Maybe I thought it was 2014, and people will understand that there's gay NFL players. There's gay athletes everywhere. But I was clearly wrong. It was a huge deal.

The players who have reached out to me and told me about their sexual orientation, it just means a lot. But I will never say anything about who they are, what teams they are [on]. I'm just saying there's some famous people, and I'm not the only one."

That's incredible!!

It'd make sense to assume that obviously there'd be a percentage of gay men playing in the NFL but "some famous" players??

Sam makes it seem like even he was shocked at how many players reached out to him.

We hope others can follow his example. It's time to swing wide the closet doors in professional sports and let the fab out!!

It's 2015 people. The time for equality for all is now. Thank goodness for people like Michael, who are willing to take that first, crucial step!

| Filed under: ZportzR.I.P.Sad SadBasketballEducational

Dean Smith left a special gift behind for his basketball players!

This February, the sports world lost a true legend when iconic North Carolina Tar Heels basketball coach Dean Smith passed away at 83 years old.

However, his former players are learning today that the bond they shared with their coach is still alive and well.

Before he died, Coach Smith wanted to make sure his players (specifically his lettermen players) knew how much they meant to him, so he made sure to leave them a little present in his will!

So what exactly did he leave them? Well, Dean made sure a letter was sent to 180 of his former players containing a check for $200 and a note to "enjoy a dinner out"!

Awwwww! How sweet is that!!

Former UNC player Jim Dempsey posted a picture of the letter he and many others received this morning, and we're sure more than a few players were fighting back some waterworks when this came in the mail!

See the whole note (below)!

Serena Williams Out-Beyoncés Queen Bey With Her Own Killer 7/11 Video!

Serena Williams 'aint messin' around!

We thought Beyoncé mastered the home-style music video when she released 7/11 from her hotel room, but we think she may have just been one-upped.

That's because Tennis' star player took some time off from training to film her own video with a GoPro!

It's always fun to see athletes letting their goofy sides out, and Serena is no exception.

But we can't decide which part is our favorite: Serena's Cookie Monster onesie, or the music stopping to let that old man walk by.

We just really hope this leads to Venus making a Bootylicious video.

Ch-ch-check out Serena Williams' true calling (below)!!!
