Gay men in sports

Michael Sam, the All-American from the University of Missouri, is the first openly gay football player.  Some NFL teams have already supported his candidacy and it seems that the media is supporting him too.

This conflict between the gentleman and the brute, which I've examined elsewhere, seems never ending.....
