ESPN has to issue an apologize for their report on Michael Sam’s showering habits

samOn Tuesday, Josina Anderson appeared live on SportsCenter from Earth City, Mo. to report on various Rams topics. At the end of the segment, she was asked how Sam, the first openly gay player in NFL history, was fitting in with teammates. Anderson first quoted Sam’s fellow defensive lineman Kendall Langford, who called the rookie “just one of the guys.” Well that report has come back and bit them.

“ESPN regrets the manner in which we presented our report,” the network said in a statement posted at its media-relations website, via SportsBusiness Daily.  “Clearly on Tuesday we collectively failed to meet the standards we have set in reporting on LGBT-related topics in sports.”

I don’t understand how this is even news, but I love to see ESPN apologizing.
