The New York Times Went To Michael Sam’s Hometown And The Mizzou Campus To See How People Are Reacting…
One would imagine that Michael Sam’s detractors are a bit camera shy at the moment, seeing as the overwhelming support he’s received from the vast majority of the sports world is a indication that they (meaning the haters) are in the minority. That being said, those who are critical of his decision to come out, like his father Michael Sr., are tempering their opinions and giving statements like this:
[The New York Times] Last Tuesday, Michael Sam Sr. was at a Denny’s near his home outside Dallas to celebrate his birthday when his son sent him a text message.
Dad, I’m gay, he wrote.
The party stopped cold. “I couldn’t eat no more, so I went to Applebee’s to have drinks,” Sam Sr. said. “I don’t want my grandkids raised in that kind of environment.
“I’m old-school,” he added. “I’m a man and a woman type of guy.”
He also claims to have taken his other son to Mexico to “lose his virginity.” Ya, very old school. Regardless, the Times made this short video documenting the support Sam Jr. is receiving (and has received all along) in his hometown of Hitchcock, Texas, and at the University of Missouri from teammates. The rather macho bunch of firefighters and Texas football folks seem to agree: Michael Sam is a really good dude to have on your football team and in your life, generally.
