Michael Sam, the Rams defensive end who made waves by coming out as gay while playing D1 college football at Mizzou, received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award a couple nights ago. His speech definitely, most certainly, did not make me cry, for I am tough. So tough.
It makes me so happy when I get to tag a post with both “gay rights” and “sports.” Sports tends to be full of Christianity and it’s no doubt that the anti-gay movement in America draws its motivation almost exclusively from the Christianity. Seeing equality emerging even in the world of sports…it’s a good sign.
