Michael Sam made waves the other year when he was drafted by the St. Louis Rams as the first openly gay NFL player. Today, amid talks that the supreme court will take a closer look at the constitutional grounds for gay marriage, Sam posted this photo on Instagram proposing to his long-time boyfriend Vito Cammisano.

If you stepped outside your mid-January, Netflix-addled cave recently you probably heard something about Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh, and his devastating botched attempt at taking home the W last weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. To put it lightly, it was an unanticipated moment of sheer unfettered insanity.


A 27-yard-attempt miss. Nobody saw that coming. Check out this absurd compilation of fan reactions from both ends of the spectrum:


Anyways following all that madness, a first-grade class wrote a collection of encourage letters to Blair Walsh to cheer the saddened soul up. He responded in pretty much the best and most gracious way possible by visiting the kids today at Northpoint Elementary School in Blaine, Minnesota.


The children passed along advice in their letters like, 'you are handsome,' and 'everyone makes mistakes sometimes. One time I made a mistake when I was doing a cartwheel.'


Cartwheels are tough as fu*k though, so totally understand on that account. Suffice to say, all parties involved were feeling seven kinds of thankful. Keep your head up Walsh!

Ma'ake Kemoeatu has always been on the lookout for his brother Chris. As the eldest of seven siblings, Ma'ke felt it was always his duty to look after the rest of his family - going so far as to receive a game suspension after improperly providing Chris textbooks to finish his schooling.

So when Chris began suffering greater and greater problems from his kidney - flareups and near-constant pain that nearly prevented him from playing the game and forced him to retire early - Ma'ake stepped up and provided the organ for transplant.

According to their doctors, the two brothers are recovering well. Clearly this is one family willing to step up for one another.

16 Blatant Idiots Supercharged on Cockiness That Failed and Got Premature Championship Tattoos Before Their Teams Won

I wish I knew one of these sorry individuals that had to go stigmatize themselves with stupidity, before their presupposed championship teams actually, well you know, WON. For the meanwhile, these strangers and their well-documented, supremely obvious mistakes will suffice.

Rob Gronkowski Steals Tom Brady's Super Bowl Jersey At Opening Day Game in Fenway Park, Brady Proceeds to Tackle Him In Outfield

Well, looks like Gronk's out for another six weeks, and did you see that look of initial shock light up across Brady's face? No way in hell was the dude about to let anyone get away with his previously stolen (thankfully found...) Super Bowl jersey again!

So, it turns out Ryan Fitzpatrick has a laugh on par with the Pillsbury Doughboy. The laugh itself is more of a shock than Nick Mangold's photobomb.

Quidditch being the only sport I follow, I don't know a lot about Tampa Bay Buccaneers player Mike Evans, but I do know he's my favorite NFL player because of his epic Harry Potter groom's cake. Dude is apparently a huge fan, and he isn't afraid to show it.
