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.
Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt is one of the most fearsome pass rushers the NFL has ever seen. But before he was forcing fumbles and knocking QBs to the turf by the dozens, Watt was an undersized kid with an oversized bullying problem. He was constantly picked on in school, and told that he would never play football because of his size. So when Watt met Billy, a local kid with his own bullying problem, the issue hit close to home.
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.
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!
In these dark and unpredictable times Marshawn Lynch is the treasure at the end of the damn Skittles rainbow, dude. Watching the unintentionally hilarious retired Seattle Seahawk who was once famous for his one word press responses now engage in entertaining dialogue with various folk around Scotland is well, it's everything.
Keep an eye out for one of the highlights when Lynch straight up overloads a lady with 50 bags of Skittles.
