As I was having my dinner in a restaurant tonight, I was shocked when Michael Sams boyfriend kissed him in the mouth on national television, as he received the news that he’d been drafted by the St. Louis Rams.
The highly decorated defensive end was drafted in the seventh round, 249th overall, and famously kissed boyfriend Vito Cammisano after smashing cake in his face on national television.
Many current Rams tweeted congratulatory messages to their new teammate and said they looked forward to getting him on the field. Really? If I was a straight muscle formed football player, I wouldn’t want a gay team-mate in the locker room with me.
ESPN aired footage of people at a well-known Los Angeles gay bar celebrating Sam’s entry into the NFL. And President Obama (the president who supports and encourages the gay culture) offered words of congratulations of course, to both Sam and the Rams for the draft pick.
Sam is the NFL’s first openly gay player.
