My first thought when I heard the news about Michael Sam coming out: “Good for him. It’s about time we had some progress there”

My second thought: “Let the shitstorm commence”

My support is fully behind Michael, and I hope he turns into a Hall of Famer and makes it so gay players don’t have to hide themselves from a homophobic culture. This is a big deal, and I hope he’s ready and surrounded by good people for the media storm that will follow him for a while. There is a lot to say on this matter, for everyone, but I’d rather not go into all that because if you support the guy you probably feel the same way about it all that I do, and nothing I say on the topic will not be said better by smarter people than myself in the coming months.

I just want to voice my support for him. Go get ’em, Sam.
