I bet Oprah Winfrey didn’t foresee the TV movie ending like this.
The St. Louis Rams released defensive end Michael Sam on Saturday, the team announced.
Sam’s efforts to become the first openly gay player in NFL history came up just short in a competition against undrafted rookie Ethan Westbrooks.
It’s amazing how many of these media-hyped “historic firsts” turn out not to be up to the job.
Update: A little tantrum from the lefties at Mother Jones: Michael Sam, Who Is Better At Football Than You Will Ever Be At Anything, Has Been Cut By the Rams . Kind of ironic that Sam is the gay dude, but it’s the liberal media who are all butthurt.
