(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

My Dad did that for me, but I just wish he had paid the extra nine pesos so I could have gone BEFORE the donkey.

Kluwe told him he would not have many problems with players. "They're there to play football," he said.

Maybe on the field, but this kid could cause problems in the showers. Not because he's gay, because he's from Hitchcock:

"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."

Yo, Kool-aid!

With a high school coach that looks like this, I'm surprised he wasn't scared straight

So a black man chooses his farked up values over his unconditional love for his son.  The same values some dicks trumpeted to put his people in chains 150 years ago.  This kind of shiat makes my brain hurt.  Also interesting to note that most anti-gay quotes from the bible are from Leviticus.  Which also say its cool to rape a biatch but if you knock her up you have to marry her or buy her dad a donkey.  Truly values to base your life on.

He's just trying to land the Kansas head coaching position.

FTA "A sister drowned when she was 2, before Michael was born, when another child accidentally knocked her off a fishing pier. Another brother, Russell, was 15 when he was shot and killed trying to break into a home, in what his father said was part of a gang initiation. Another brother, Julian, has not been heard from since he left for work one day in 1998; his family believes he is dead. Two others are in jail. "
HIs mother " JoAnn is a member of the Jehovah's Witnesses, who do not celebrate holidays or believe in most birth control and generally shun participation in organized sports. Michael Sr. comes from a large Baptist family, and his father was a long-serving deacon at a church in nearby Texas City, Tex. "

I bet coming out is one of the easier things this guy has gone through.

meanmutton: 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?

The Lions GM is a big fan of taking guys who are really athletic but have something that causes other teams to downgrade them. I could see him overlooking the tweener aspect. No clue, though, about the sexual orientation thing.

If he had an injury and/or concussion history, he'd be a sure thing to go to the Lions in the second round.
