Something that got lost in the shuffle and the white hot media glare that was Ray Rice was Michael Sam. He was picked up as a practice squad player several weeks ago by the Dallas Cowboys but was cut last week. Some tried to attach some conspiracy to it because he is openly gay but it seems to really have been purely a football decision.
Sometimes you have to just put a block of cheese on your head…and dance. This was the scene at Casa de Packers last Sunday as the Green Bay Packers pulled even at 2-2 with a big victory over the Chicago Bears…

I had a chance to take in When The Game Stands Tall over the weekend and I really liked it. It’s no Remember The Titans that’s for sure, and I think it tried a little hard to mimic that film, but it’s really well done. If I had to give it a grade in a classroom I’d award it a hearty B for very good. I don’t know if I’d recommend you pay full price at night for it but it’s definitely worth a matinee viewing after a cute lunch somewhere. What really stood tall for me was the hidden hottie Matthew Daddario.
I’ve been mulling it over in my head for a few days now and I thought it was time I weighed in and posted some of my thoughts about the NFL and the new Ray Rice video that emerged this week. There is no other way to say this: The NFL handled almost this entire situation really, really wrong. The initial two-day suspension of Ray Rice was a ghastly error in and of itself.
So football season kicked off last week and both my Dallas Cowboys and Nate’s Green Bay Packers dropped their opening games and didn’t play all that well. I’ll have more to say about Ray Rice and the mishandling of his domestic abuse case soon but Nate and I got into the spirit of the new season in honor of a very special occasion.
Football season is kicking into high gear with Week 1 nearly over. If you’re Packer and Cowboy fans like Mike and I, we know your pain. However! With the new football season comes new commercials, like this one from DirecTV featuring a gay couple.
