At halftime during a basketball game Saturday, Mizzou students and spectators gave a rousing ovation to their star footballer Michael Sam, who is widely expected to become the first openly gay NFL player when he is inevitably drafted in May.

Sam is this week’s Truthdigger of the Week, and his coming out story was featured last week on Truthdig Radio.

According to OutSports, “Earlier, about 2,000 fans formed a chain as a peaceful protest to keep the gay bashers from Westboro Baptist Church away from campus.”
