Michael Sam

Now Open

for Business

3/8/2014 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0308-michael-sam-store-01If you had "under one month" in your "When Will Michael Sam Cash in on His Newfound Fame" office pool, then congrats ... YOU'RE A WINNER!!!

Sam, who is about to be drafted into the NFL and thus become the first openly gay man to play in the league, has launched his own line of merchandise, which is now for sale on his website.


The site is selling t-shirts and buttons with slogans like "Stand With Sam" and "#SamStrong." The majority of the merchandise is in black, white, and gold (his college colors).

But Sam is no fool ... he's got a few items for sale thats use the rainbow flag, a prominent symbol in the gay rights community. As the old saying goes ... know your customer.

A portion of the proceeds will be going to at-risk youth in the St. Louis area.

There is no guarantee that he will be drafted to begin with. He didn't perform that well at the combine and let's be honest, alot of teams might not want the media headache.

I think he's a bottom. I suspect also he has an average-sized peen. I also think he swallows, do not spit out.

Really?

Why should Anyone care and why USE sexuality for profit?

Why not be known for YOU instead of which END you put it in or take it in.

This should not even be a discussion.

The guy sucks, he's slow the only reason he's out here flaunting his gayness is so that if he doesn't get drafted he can blame it on his sexuality vs the real reason...

He wants people to see him as an athlete, just a regular guy. But now he wants to market this aspect of his life. Too bad for him he bombed at the combine. In all fairness, he is a 5th late round pick and good luck making it through training camp.

Now he is trying to profit from his gayness? It's all a scam and the media as usual bought into it.

What very sick and confused young man. It's so sad that society has devolved to the point that it celebrates unnatural and perverted behavior. Hopefully Sam get's the help he so desperately needs.

Homosexual activists desperately try to convince everyone that it's not like he'll be checking out his teammates in the locker room or anything. Let's review that thought process though. He's "attracted" to penis, will be in a locker room full of naked men, but he's not going to check out those particular penises? Is that like a homosexual code of conduct or something? If that were the case, gyms across the country wouldn't have separate locker rooms for men and women. Neither would the military. Homosexual activists need to be able to answer why locker rooms are separated by sexes if they truly believe that there is no problem for a homosexual to be in a locker room full of naked members of the sex they are "attracted" to. They can't because there's no logic behind that argument.
