Larry Brown Sports- After abruptly leaving the Montreal Alouettes earlier this month, Michael Sam returned to the team on Sunday night and explained that he needed to take care of some issues in his personal life. We now have an idea of what may have been going on.
It appears Sam and his boyfriend Vito Cammisano, to whom the former Missouri star was engaged, have broken up.
As TMZ pointed out, Sam has removed several photos of himself with Cammisano from his Twitter and Instagram pages. One of them is the photo that shows Sam down on one knee proposing to Cammisano during a trip to Europe. Sam and Cammisano have also not been spotted together in roughly two months, and Vito said nothing on social media after Sam left the Alouettes.
There has been speculation that Sam left the Alouettes because he was “pouting” after a teammate made a comment about him, but relationship trouble would make more sense. If you remember, Sam and Cammisano kissed on national television after Sam was drafted by the St. Louis Rams. They have been very public with their displays of affection since Sam came out. Something has to be up.
I know this may seem counterintuitive given what we are talking about, but is it too much to ask of the first openly homosexual player to attempt to play in the NFL to not be sooooo.....gay? Talk about terrible representation. Jesus Christ. I didn't like the path we started down when he and his then boyfriend were giving each other cake facials after his 6th round selection, but I'll be damned if we haven't fallen off a cliff since then. I guess I should have seen this coming when he was trying to turn the Rams locker room into an episode of 'The Oprah Show' before he even strapped the pads on. I feel like the NFL could have recruited a more manly homosexual off the cast of 'Queer Eye For The Straight Guy'.
Be a little more melodramatic Michael. Leaving your CFL team because you and your 'One Direction' stunt double of a fiancé broke up is pretty much the worst reason I have heard for someone to take a leave of absence from their job. That reason is so gay I think I saw it eating a unicorn's ass underneath a rainbow. I'm not even talking about professional sports either. When is the last time a person, gay or straight, took time off from their occupation because of a breakup. How about a little bit of mental toughness Michael? There are gay men working 12 hour days in the fashion industry saying "don't be such a fag". Instead of going through your Instagram deleting every picture you have taken with your ex-boyfriend like you are a 14 year old girl, how about you try taking your breakup like a man? The best way to get over someone is to get behind someone else. Go find a new metrosexual little white boy with jungle fever. It can't be too difficult, you're the first openly gay football player. That's got to count for something in the homosexual community, right? You begged for this attention, how about using it to your advantage for once?
It doesn't even surprise me in the least that the Supreme Court rules that gay marriage is officially legal and all the sudden Michael Sam is newly single. I hope someone asks him what he thinks of the ruling. "Gay marriage? That is likkkke, sooooo 2014". Now that it's mainstream it's not even all that desirable to the biggest drama queen in sports history. He's not worried about taking steps to help those of the same sexuality progress, he's worried about using his sexuality to help himself progress. The guy tried so damn hard to be a trendsetter instead of just being himself that he just turned into a walking stereotype. Thank God we aren't basing the ability of homosexuals to co-exist in professional sports off Michael Sam or the concept would already be extinct.
