NOW THAT MICHAEL SAM aka THE FIRST OPENLY GAY PRO FOOTBALL PLAYER Has signed to the CFL specifically The Canadian Alouette’s, we thought now would be a perfect time to remind all you Sports fans that going to The CFL isn’t necessarily a Death Sentence. ]
There are actual Success Stories, yes players who went there and came back to The NFL and had great careers.So we put together a list of these Players, and by the way they were not openly gay but more than likely they were probably openly broke seeing as though they were playing in the CFL.
But first a few mandatory jokes about Michael Sam. An Alouette is the Canadian word for Lark. A lark is a bird and a bird is something Michael Sam umm…never mind, Lark’s are normally found in dry regions where Michael Sam is usually found in…… Umm…never mind.
