President Barack Obama congratulated Michael Sam on Saturday for being the first openly gay football player taken in the National Football League draft, the White House said in a statement.
"From the playing field to the corporate boardroom, LGBT Americans prove everyday that you should be judged by what you do and not who you are," Obama said. He also congratulated the NFL and the St. Louis Rams, the team that drafted Sam.
Sam, an All-American defensive end who played for the University of Missouri, made history when he was picked by the Rams in the seventh and final round. He was the 249th of 256 players selected.
The 24-year-old got the news by telephone from Rams' coach Jeff Fisher, who told Sam: "You are a Ram. The wait is finally over."
Sam, who was filmed by ESPN as he got the call, broke down in tears in the arms of his boyfriend. "Thank you," he could be heard saying to Fisher....

“From the playing field to the corporate boardroom, LGBT Americans prove everyday that you should be judged by what you do and not who you are,” Obama said” . . .
as Obama judged him to be extra special and make a big deal about what he IS.
Obama is a sicko....just like these fags.........
Now this is important! a man who is celebrated for having sex with another man. The term being gay is the pretty and nice packaging that surrounds and encases the real act. These happeneings are celebrated as being heroic, courages and an inspiration to us all. There is a mental desease that inflicts those of us who once had a working mind.
I didn't think so.
Precisely. I’m very certain Hussein didn’t call the other athletes who likely could “do” the job better than the level Sam is capable of.
That’s funny. He’d be on the phone day. Wasn’t this guy deep into the 200’s?
It would have been better for this guy to keep his mouth shut and come out when he made the team.
I am willing to bet there will be outrage when he is sent to the practice squad on September 1st.
Now we will have to suffer with all of the Rams pre season games.
Indeed. Evil is rampant. Every day I “Look up.”
King Obozo has lust in his heart.
"Gay" is what he does - having oral and anal sex with other men. It's not what he "is."
Two-forty-nine out of two-fifty-six. Methinks the league exercised a little pressure to get him selected. What team would willingly put this guy in their locker room? At best he’s practice squad material.
