Though I haven’t written about the story of college football (and soon-to-be NFL) player Michael Sam, who recently announced he is gay, I absolutely had to share this.
Watch as Texas sportscaster thoroughly debunks the notion that a gay player wouldn’t be welcome in NFL locker rooms simply by virtue of his sexual orientation.
Over at Deadspin, former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe posted an excellent entry offering his opinion that he wasn’t released by the Minnesota Vikings because of salary or performance issues, but because of his activism for same-sex marriage rights. So there you have it. It’s my belief, based on everything that happened over the course [...]
And now for something completely unrelated to politics… After the Bucks lost 104-91 to the Heat in Milwaukee on April 25, Sanders vented in the locker room and said in a fiery speech, “We need to start playing together as a team and stop worrying about next year,” according to one of the people briefed [...]

Could this guy be any more wooden and robotic while discussing the NFL referees strike?
Look, I get that NFL football is a foreign concept to a guy whose idea of sport is dressage, but the least Mitt Romney could do is attempt to look human while answering a question about the NFL referees [...]
Replacement fans. That’s the solution to the problems the NFL is currently experiencing. Those of us who enjoy watching professional football need to force the owners to find replacement fans.

“I don’t think this has anything [...]
