Michael Sam receives Arthur Ashe Courage Award.

Michael Sam, the Rams defensive end who made waves by coming out as gay while playing D1 college football at Mizzou, received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award a couple nights ago.  His speech definitely, most certainly, did not make me cry, for I am tough.  So tough.

It makes me so happy when I get to tag a post with both “gay rights” and “sports.”  Sports tends to be full of Christianity and it’s no doubt that the anti-gay movement in America draws its motivation almost exclusively from the Christianity.  Seeing equality emerging even in the world of sports…it’s a good sign.
