Episode 36 As it was recorded.

Michael Sam Seeks To Become First Openly Gay Athlete In Professional Team Sports

You guys are going to have to forgive me for putting this in the Crazy News section. But seeing as how people’s reactions can sometimes be over the top. It just seems appropriate. Michael Sam, All American Defensive Lineman of the University of Mizzouri came out publicly as a gay man, just months before the NFL Draft. Seeking to become the first openly gay athlete in the for major U.S. Sports leagues. In an attempt to get out in front and tell his story before someone did it for him, Sam spoke with ESPN’s Chris Connelly to make the announcement on News magazine “Outside The Lines” to reveal not only that he was gay, but that his teammates have known about it for a year. Here is a brief video of the exchange.

Richard Sherman GOES IN on Skip Bayliss of ESPN’s First Take

The Seattle Seahawks have punched their ticket to the Super Bowl, by beating the San Francisco 49ers 23-17. But in the post game interview, Richard Sherman has been getting a lot of unflattering attention because of the comments he made during the post game interview with Erin Andrews. Check this out.

Spirited, and enthusiastic after the win, no doubt. But in the aftermath of that interview, Sherman has been called a lot of different names. “Thug”, “Classless”, “Sore Winner” “Ignorant” and a host of other names, all based on a 30 second interview after what was probably the biggest games of his life against someone he surely doesn’t have the best relationship with. What get’s missed in these psychoanalysis attempts by the layperson is that this is a man who came out of Compton, California, to go on to play football at Stanford University, GRADUATED from Stanford University, and went back for his Master’s Degree during his final year of eligibility at the school. Which totally belies the idea that this man is ignorant, or a “Thug” in the traditional senses of the words.

CORRECTION!!!
The following video was produced on in March of 2013, and had nothing to do with the events that transpired during the hoopla surrounding Sherman’s post game interview during the NFC Championship game with the 49ers.

I’m not going to even get into the racial undertones of a lot of the criticism coming his way after that interview. (Besides the name calling, and the calls of Erin Andrews possibly being frightened during said interview.) But Sherman did himself no favors when as a guest on the ESPN show First Take, he goes on a Personal Attack Parade against co-host of the show, Skip Bayless. Going so far as to say “In my 24 years of life, I’m better at life than you.” I’ll reserve my judgment until the next episode of The Spann Report Podcast, but check out this video and make up your own mind. Did Richard Sherman go too far?
