It didn't take long for people to find a reason to be upset with Michael Sam. Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted by the NFL, will soon become the first openly gay player to be drafted by the NFL who has his own cable television docudrama.
Oprah Winfrey's cable network, OWN, has convinced Sam to let its cameras follow him around, documenting his life as he prepares to become an NFL player.
This news has rankled some football, ahem, traditionalists, who would rather Sam stick to football and not worry about extracurricular interests like being the star of a reality TV show because he has become enormously famous for being gay.
Truth be told, there are really only two things most of America knows about Sam. He was a good college football player who wasn't drafted until the end of the seventh round by the St. Louis Rams. And after last Saturday, we know he has a comparatively diminutive Caucasian boyfriend with wavy hair whom he kissed live on ESPN after hearing he was being drafted.
