that was the first thought i had watching the mikey sam documentary.
the one that came on own last night.
when i finished watching both the documentary and oprah’s prime,
i was left with a few other thoughts that led me to my conclusion…
i didn’t really feel anything for him.
i didn’t cry.
i wasn’t emotional.
i felt nada.
is that wrong to say that out loud?
he just doesn’t come off relatable.
well to me anyway.
i noticed he also comes off like a jerk as well.
that part where he was going in on the publicist.
one thing that stood out to me,
just as an observation and i could be completely wrong,
but he looks like he isn’t too sure now about coming out.
he gives this impression through his body language of regret.
first he said he always knew he was gay,
and then he told oprah he thought it would be a phase.
so which is it mikey?
i still maintain the idea he should have come out after played a season.
even if he wanted to try it mid season,
at least he would have been on a team and built stronger bridges.
everyone didn’t know him as:
MICHAEL SAM: THE GREAT DEFENSIVE END
he is now:
MICHEAL SAM: THE FIRST OPENLY GAY BLAH BLAH BLAH
just a great college career that has passed.
sure the people he played college ball with would appreciate him.
he grew with them,
for like what,
he established a connection with those people.
this is the nfl baby.
new ball game.
i think in the end he serves as a lesson.
i have this feeling all the others who wanted to come out won’t.
they used michael sam.
he was also using them as well.
he tried to use his “coming out” as leverage to get drafted,
and although he did in the seventh round,
that clearly that didn’t help him go far enough.
personally the snow fox came off more likable.
more likable than “mikey”.
he is very supportive.
i didn’t get any user vibes from him.
i think its genuine.
it was actually really telling that he is the bread winner now:
“the roles have reversed
and now he is the happy housewife.” – the snow fox said.
although i kinda feel that was thrown in to pull at our heart strings,
i also feel that will eventually cause problems for them in the future.
maybe the near.
this is how we will know if their love was really genuine.
so whats next for mikey sam?
i honestly don’t know.
as the days go on,
his hype starts to diminish.
the straights who actually watch football could care less.
maybe he will use this to elevate himself to stardom?
become an activist?
or simply fade away as “this is what may happen to you”?
i wish him well on his future endeavors.
i’ll be watching.
lowkey: i’ll take the older black wolf in the office,
as well and those sweaty pre baller wolves….
