Even non-sports fans know that Michael Sam was drafted to the St. Louis Rams on Saturday, making him the first openly gay athlete in the NFL.

Ever since drafting began on Thursday, Sam has been the primary focus of everyone from LGBT groups to sports figures to your next-door neighbor. This means that as ESPN and all major news stations talk about the event, Twitter is also abuzz with excitement over the announcement.

As draft season began, Sam was excited regardless of the outcome.

Once he was picked, even Magic Johnson offered his input.

Kids get it, so why doesn’t everyone else?

Sam was beyond excited.

And then the jokes began.

On a serious note though, overalls need to stay in the 90’s.
