If 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.
Hey Guys, #StandWithSam and #SamStrong gear is finally available at https://t.co/8eA9jfcnOx

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.
