One Remark

  1. Wow! Good for Michael Sam. Having played college ball in Missouri- it was logical for the St. Louis Rams to try and grab him in the draft picks.

    I’m in St. Louis. Here is hoping Mr. Sam will inspire the closeted members of our beloved St. Louis Cardinals baseball team and St. Louis Blues hockey team to “come out.” However, I won’t hold my breath. Oh, AND YES, there are gay/bi men on both “our” (St. Louis) baseball and hockey teams. And NO, I won’t divulge who they are.

    If St. Louis embraced Mr. Sam… maybe other professional athletes in St. Louis and elsewhere will be able to come out of the closet.

    Now… how do we get Sam to help us win a Super Bowl? It is time that our beautiful Mississippi riverfront city with the Gateway Arch in the skyline has another chance at the Super Bowl! Are you ready Michael Sam?
