Monday, Washington D.C. lobbyist Jack Burkman announcedhe'd be introducing legislation to try and ban gay players from the NFL. Tuesday, Michael Sam, who is trying to become the first openly gay player in the league, poked a bit of fun at the idea. Sam took to Twitter with a joke referencing the time machine used in Back To The Future. His point is obvious - Burkman is stuck in the past.
Bravo for Sam for standing up for himself. Let's hope this is the last we hear about this proposed "bill".
