The First Openly Gay Athlete Drafted into the NFL is now Officially Professional Football Player, Michael Sams, as he was Drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the 7th Round of the NFL Draft.

As Sams received the news that he was being Drafted by the St. Louis Rams, he began to cry then turned and began hugging and kissing his Partner  Quite honestly it's the first time I've seen a Man kiss another Man outside of what I've seen on TV on shows where people are acting... this was no act... it was a VERY EMOTIONAL moment for Sams and his Partner.  You can sense from watching the video that Sams may have been shedding tears of Joy more-so regarding his plight dealing with "Coming Out" and being accepted... than he was celebrating being Drafted into the NFL!

"The Kiss" caused much controversy...especially on Twitter where the Social Media Forum went WILD WITH COMMENTS!  One such Tweet was that of Miami Dolphins Safety, Don Jones (VIDEO BELOW).  Jones is being FINED by his team, Suspended from any Off-Season Practices, and has to undergo COMPLETE EDUCATIONAL TRAINING.

SHOULD JONES BE FINED & SUSPENDED?
