Looks like he's back to being available.

The Dallas Cowboys signed defensive end Michael Sam to their 10-man practice squad on September 3rd, but they just decided to waive him. Michael is the first openly gay player in the NFL, and it's a shame he hasn't been able to find an official home yet!

After a tumultuous year that included the NBA lockout and disintegration of his relationship with Kim Kardashian, the free agent signed on to to play for the the New Jersey Nets again.

The one year contract is a pay bump for Kris too and is reportedly worth $8 million. Not bad for an early Christmas present!

Hockey Player Rick Rypien Passes Away

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadMental HealthHockey

Rick Rypien

Such sad news for the hockey community!

Winnipeg Jets forward Rick Rypien, who more famously played with the Vancouver Canucks for 6 years, passed away after an apparent suicide.

At just 27-years-old, he was found dead in his home on Monday and authorities have determined the circumstances to be a “non-suspicious sudden death.”

Although he left the Canucks to join the Winnipeg Jets as a free agent over the summer, the Vancouver organization had nothing but kind words, saying:

"It is with tremendous sadness that the Vancouver Canucks confirm the passing of Rick Rypien. Rick has been a beloved member of the Canucks’ family for the past six years. Rick was a great teammate and friend to our players, coaches and staff. We send our deepest condolences to the Rypien family at this most difficult time.”

Rick struggled with mental health issues throughout his career and even had to take a leave of absence from the team last November because of whatever personal demons he was facing. Unfortunately, it seems it may have been those personal demons that cut his life short.

Our heart goes out to the talent hockey player's friends and family during this difficult time and wish them the best as they deal with their loss. Rest in peace, Rick!

thomas dekker opens up about open sexuality

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles fans of all genders, rejoice! When it comes to relationships, Thomas Dekker is open to anything.

The Terminator: TSCC/Heroes/Nightmare on Elm Street actor opened up about his sexuality during a recent interview and had the following to say about it:

"I've only really had relationships with women, but I'm certainly not closed to it. If there are possibilities of being able to do anything in life, why would you say you would never take any up?"

"In the later chunk of my teen years I was so all over the place with sex. It was terrible. I never really had a real relationship at all. During puberty, it's all about sex, and it's all about figuring yourself out. I think I overdid it when I was younger."

So there you have it, folks! Thomas Dekker is officially an equal opportunity free agent!

Are U excited to hear about Dekker's open sexuality?
