Where is Michael Sam? Apparently he has been battling drug addiction and trying to repair his relationship with his family after his short lived NFL career came to an end. As you recall, Michael was the first openly gay player to be drafted into the NFL, facing backlash and scrutiny after being picked up by the Saint Louis Rams, he was subsequently released. One scene included him kissing his then fiance on air. Then he was picked up by the Dallas Cowboys only to be released before playing a single down for the team. Since then, Michael states his life has fallen into despair, and in part blames the LGBT community for his trials, feeling he was made the poster boy for the movement and then abandoned.

In an emotional interview published on Yahoo News, former NFL player Michael Sam recounts how his life fell apart after he was celebrated as the first openly gay player in the NFL.

Sam also criticizes the LGBT community, among others, for not helping him after his life had spiraled out of control…

Sam says he began to abuse drugs and alcohol and lost control of his life.

When he found himself in a one-bedroom apartment in Dallas by the Fall of 2016, he reached out to the LGBT community who had championed him before, as well as other sports organizations and businesses.

Despite the previous support they had shown him, “no one would give me a job,” he said.

“Where was the support that I got for coming out?” Sam added. “I felt like I was used by everyone.”

He was partying, working out and hooked on cocaine. “I felt lost and worthless,” he said.

Sam has since stopped abusing hard drugs after an ayahuasca retreat in Peru. He is working to heal his broken relationship with his family.

We honestly are not sure how to feel about Michael Sam’s placement of blame on the LGBT community. Yes, he is a member of the community, but may feel he did not move strategically with his draft process, let alone the timeliness of his coming out. We are glad he has gotten the help he needs and even happier he is reconnecting with his family, but we honestly feel there needs to be some deep introspection on his part. What are your thoughts? Sound off in the comments’ section below.

So You Mad? Trump (@realDonaldTrump) Rescinds Steph Curry’s White House Invitation…

Roses are red, violets are blue, Donald Trump is a fool, and if you voted for him SO ARE YOU!

It is another day and our current President proves yet again to be un-presidendential in his response to any type of resistance to him. As you know, Trump went after the NFL last night, urging them to fire players who decided to join Colin Kaepernick in his protest against the National Anthem. Then this morning, he set his sights on the NBA!

Trump apparently rescinded Stephen “Steph” Curry’s invitation to the White House due to his “hesitation” about deciding to come.

Typically, the championship team will visit the White House in celebration of their win — but Steph doesn’t want to go.

“Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team,” Donald tweeted Saturday morning. “Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!”

Interestingly, Steph had already said on Friday night, bluntly, he did not want to go. Thus, Trump rescinded an invitation that was already rejected. Like many Americans, Steph has always been openly critical of Trump’s administration and his decision not to attend does not come as a shocker.

Clearly Trump has nothing better to do, like run than country, so he had taken his free time to attack professional athletes. The last time we checked North Korea has been threatening to detonate hydrogen bombs, but Steph Curry and the NFL are of higher priority it seems.

That’s y’all President though…
