Why are we not talking about Derrick Coleman????

  • He’s been legally Deaf since he was 3 years old
  • That’s over 20 years
  • He received a letter from a fan who’s also Deaf and he wrote back an inspirational reply
  • He’s the first ever Deaf offensive player in the league.
  • He’s also the first to win a Super Bowl Ring
  • He’s also the first to score a touchdown
  • In order to play football, he has to watch everyone else and move when they move, wear hearing aids, and he has to read Quarterback Russell Wilson’s lips in order to know what the play is, and he still manages to do it and do it well.
  • He’s now on the Seahawks starting lineup, so he’ll be getting a lot more playing time
  • He’s got his own commercial with Durracell
  • He’s just an inspiration to me and a lot of others.

Like Any Other Couple

I’m Still On A High From The St. Louis Ram’s Pick Of Michael Sam In The NFL Draft On Saturday Night. His Reaction In The Moment He Realized That He Was Achieving His Dream Was Priceless! Sharing The Moment With Michael Sam Was Vito Cammisano, His Boyfriend, A Fellow Mizzou Athlete, Who Came Out While On The Swim Team For The School. Vito’s Support For Michael Was Evident, As ESPN Covered The Moment Of Michael’s Draft. The Couple, As Any Other Straight Or Gay Couple Do, Embraced And Kissed, Enjoying The Moment Of A Partner’s Good Fortune. 

Their Open Show Of Affection For Each Other Was Spontaneous, Genuine, And Natural. And It Was As Groundbreaking As Michael Sam’s Draft As An Openly Gay Athlete In The NFL. Unfortunately, As Is All Too Common On Social Media, There Are Those Who Need To Vent Mean-Spirited Thoughts In Comments. Shame On Them! But Such Comments, More Often Than Not, Spring From Deep-Seated Self-Loathing, So It Is Best To Ignore Them!

Bravo, Once Again, To Michael Sam!

Bravo Too, To Vito Cammisano!

Best Wishes To Michael In His NFL Career.

And Best Wishes To You Both No Matter Where Your Future Takes You!

Go Rams!
