This past Saturday, former Missouri defensive end Michael Sam made history by becoming the first openly gay man to be drafted onto an NFL team – the St. Louis Rams. While most football fans have been supportive of what he’s trying to accomplish, of course, there have been some speaking out against the idea of having a gay man both on television and in an NFL locker room.
Luckily, we have the comedy group of Heck Bender here to set the record straight. In the below video, titled “How to talk to your kids about Michael Sam”, the “father” asks the “son” for a few minutes to talk about the NFL rookie. The conversation between the two beautifully puts everything into perspective.
