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

Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzFootballNFLMichael SamLGBT

no title

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!

Such an inspirational story.

An amazing thing happened at Lincoln Middle School in Kenosha, Wisconsin during a basketball game, but it was a whole lot of awfulness that spurred it.

8th grader Desiree Andrews, who has Down Syndrome, was at the game as a cheerleader when a few fans began heckling her from the stands.

Well, three basketball players for the home team — Miles Rodriguez, Scooter Terrien and Chase Vazquez — heard those insults being hurled and they decided to do something about it.

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are two of the funniest guys on TV!!

This isn't the first time Key and Peele have done an East/West Bowl, goofy name video, but it's totally our new fav!!

Normally, it's just Key and Peele dressing up like fools and announcing their crazy names.

But this time, in preparation for the Super Bowl, they're getting people really excited and including real NFL players who have actual wacky names!

They have an appearance by Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (a real player for the Green Bay Packers) and even a familiar quarterback at the very end…

Though nothing compares to made-up names like Quisperny G'Dunzoid Sr.! LOLz!

Filed under: TV NewsConan O'BrienNFLGIFsLate Night TV

no title

Now this is what we like to see heading into the Super Bowl!

Seattle Seahawks star running back Marshawn Lynch and New England Patriots star tight end Rob Gronkowski will be two of the most important players on the field this coming Sunday.

But just because these professional football players will be battling it out on Super Bowl Sunday, that doesn't mean they can't have fun with each other in the meanwhile!

Which is exactly what happened when they got together with Conan O'Brien on Conan and got to try out a brand new video game that hasn't even hit the market, yet.

What's that game called you might ask?

Well, it's called…

Mortal Kombat X!!!

Who's one of the hottest footballers playing in the Super Bowl this year??

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski!!

He's known as the Gronk and if you don't know him, he's handsome and jacked and rich and oh guess what… he's willing to sing Katy Perry at the Super Bowl Media Day!!

He also took his shirt off and played with kittens!

The Media Day is basically what you might think it is, players going to the Super Bowl are asked all sorts of questions by tons of reporters.

One peppy reporter took it upon herself to try and get Gronk to sing some of Katy Perry's songs! Probably because Katy will be performing at halftime during the big game.

The reporter has to coax him along for a minute but she eventually gets him to actually sing a little!

Check out the video (below) to hear Rob's "singing" voice. LOLz!

There's just something special about the U.S. national anthem.

We have no idea why it's not always playing on repeat on every radio station! LOLz!

Regardless, during Monday Night Football, the national anthem was performed by trumpeter Chris Botti.

His version is haunting and beautiful and it showed on the players' faces.

Awful Teen Leaves The Crappiest Tip In History! Literally!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersTeensGIFs

Ugh!

We can't believe someone would do something SO disgusting! Especially to another person!

Even for a 17-year-old… this is pretty far out of line!

Three football players from Ball State University were dining at Brothers Bar & Grill in Iowa City, Iowa, a few days ago with an unknown 17-year-old friend, but that "friend" did NOT do them any favors with this stunt!

According to a police report, the teen apparently was handed the group's bill by the waitress, and proceeded to head to the bathroom. A few minutes later, he was seen on security camera placing the bill in a black folder for the waitress.
