(The New York Times)   Michael Sam's father didn't take his son's coming out well because he's an old-school family-values type who flies his children to Mexico to lose his virginity to a prostitute. Wait, what?   (nytimes.com) divider line 64

What he failed to mention was that he sent his other son to Akron for an appointment with Fred Garvin.

elguerodiablo: Also can we stop pretending there haven't been gays in the NFL?

Bobby_and_The_Gorilla: "Apparently he couldn't finish his Denny's meal because he was so upset a Brain."

"I can relate Monsoon, I often can't finish my Denny's meal, because halfway through I look up, and realize I'm at Denny's."


WILL YOU STOP?!

lilbjorn: Hey NYT (and the rest of the media), thanks for helping to make the life of this guy, his family, his coach, and everyone who knew him a living hell because he had the guts to come out as gay. You really deserve a lot of credit. My two local sports stations haven't STFU about him for three days now. No idea what's going on in the Olympics or the NBA.

Oh you poor thing, it's too bad you live in such a shiathole place that you can't spend 5 minutes online checking up on Sochi and the NBA or *gasp* turning off the sports stations and watching the Olympics on NBC and the NBA on the multiple channels it's on.

Compared to the long national nightmare that was Tebowmania, the Michael Sam story is barely a blip.

ladodger34: Ow! That was my feelings!: ghostfacekillahrabbit: If this kid is a tweener DE who could be converted to OLB, and put up player of the year numbers in a tough conference, and is projected to go in third through fifth rounds, then Ted Thompson will agonize over picking him or passing on him starting with the 4th or 5th, and then if he's still there trade up in the 6th to take him. Fans of other teams, how do you think your team's GM thinks about this?

Well, Elway came out and said the right things, but I highly doubt after Denver's experience with Tebowmania he would want to deal with the media and the distractions Sam would bring. Very doubtful the Broncos would draft him, regardless of 'fit'.

Dude, Elwsy's best defensive player is a knucklehead. He was suspended for violating the drug policy and has done some seriously immature shiat off the field.

Elway got rid of Tebow because his stock was never going to be higher and he wasn't that good. Plus Peyton.

I see the Broncos, Steelers, Pats, Hawks, Niners, and Giants amongst others that would be good places for Sam to land just because they are stable teams and can tell folks to STFU.


The Broncos badly need help at linebacker.  I think he'd be a great fit.

Being gay is about the least interesting thing about this guy. Even without the whole coming out thing, his story warrants a sappy Oscar-bait movie.

Also, you'd think given the track record with the other kids, his dad would realize that maybe his backwoods parenting style isn't working. If they were white I'd be calling the whole family hillbillies.

germ78: Too bad the son he took to Mexico to lose his virginity didn't contract "teh gay plague" from hetero sex.


Really?

This is a stroke of marketing genius. He went from a talented guy who was a bit too small to be a lineman and a little too big to be a linebacker all the way to the most famous kid in the upcoming draft. The face of gay football. A brave hero ready to be placed upon a pedestal

Don't understand - can you explain this part?

E5bie: In junior high school, Craig Smith, the football coach, saw that Sam was athletically blessed and, even better, hungry for guidance and camaraderie. The coaches drafted him to carry equipment and hang around the squad.

My mind immediately played out THE nightmare scenario for how this young man discovered his sexuality.


One person's nightmare is another's wet dream.

/oh wait, does your nightmare involve the team or that fat-fark coach?  That makes a huge difference, I guess.

And the best part is the people screaming that he's only doing it to get attention.  An NFL player promoting himself?  *gasp*!
