Rams defensive end Michael Sam is getting a reality show.

The Oprah Winfrey Network announced today that it is working with Sam on a reality TV project that will show his life as the first openly gay player in the NFL.

“We are honored that Michael is trusting us with his private journey in this moment that has not only made history but will shape it forever,” Oprah Winfrey said in a statement. “I am proud of the focus on authentic storytelling in our new documentary series format.”

It will show him getting “hurt”, most likely in training camp and have to sit out a year.

Sam wants to switch positions...His favorite position is either a wide receiver or a split end.

Before you know it, Michael Sam will be Obama’s new “body man” at the White House.

I’m thinking about some stand up comedy that Freddie Prinz did about gay football. That being said they should call the show;”lead balloon.”

He already was taping the reality show for weeks its been revealed and the shows cameras were there when he got drafted and the whole cake-eating kissing his boyfriend performance. So as many figured out, it was indeed staged and not some spontaneous act of affection, it was setup for Oprah cameras

Well, I suppose it depends upon the content of each show.

The one about interior decorating might be suitable family fare.

One hopes Okra will issue an advance warning on the "Trip to the Proctologist Episode."

As a Public Health issue, Okra's producers ought to run a Medical Disclaimer across the bottom of the screen:

All members of the Staff and Cast
are tested weekly for all known STDs.
Wipe TV with Clorox soaked cloth after each episode.

does that mean, also, that the NFL was pressured to make sure he WAS drafted? would the cameras have just packed up and gone, had he not been?

“Why????”

It's an opportunity for the elite media progressive crowd to showcase their march of “progress” in America, which progress of course is the ruination of the country.

ESPN will probably have their own version of the show, just cleverly disguised as daily new updates.

Finally, having open gays in the NFL can only improve the quality of all their fruity celebration dances and chest pounding postures. If someone from the 50’s saw an NFL game of today, they would probably think it was mostly played by gays anyway.

A bit off topic, but I wonder about the women who think this is “nice” and “cute” but resent the heck out of men who look to Latin America, the. Far East or Russia for a wife.

It’s all about positioning Sam for a career when his very short NFL career is over. I suspect the DNC has already contacted him about pursuing a political career.

Actually, you’re very much ON topic.

The “Americanas” can go to their queer friend “weddings”...then go home, alone, to a houseful of cats and yes, curse the men that “get it” and shop for imported models*.

Because the domestics, overwhelmingly, are worthless, unless “Sex and the City” trivia is involved.

*I’m not married, but eliminated domestic models from consideration years ago. I only consider and consort with imports.

One of the funniest stand-up comedy routines ever was by Bob Nelson at the 1984 Rodney Dangerfield Young Comedians Special on HBO. Nelson did his impression of “College Football All-Stars,” and one of the players spoke with a very effeminate voice and said that he was from the “University of San Francisco, tight end ... next year I hope to be a wide receiver ....” Absolutely hilarious (as were most of his other characters).

St. Louis has a homo mayor. I think maybe he was drafted because the Rams are looking to get a favor from the city.

I think Obama himself called and insisted that Sam be drafted before the end of Round 7.

A true Maine Woman might feel the same way. Large enough to provide shade in Summer, and warmth in Winter, she herself would perhaps consider anyone like you, being from "away," as an "import," and might rule you out.

Somehow, I think that "reality" has very little to do with this.

As so often in the age of Obama & his devotees, including those with their own networks, one can only long for a return of Dean Swift, so that Gulliver might describe contemporary America. (Been trying for years, but I just cannot measure up to the master.)
