Updated: Mo Alexander made the 53-man roster for the Rams
Here is a video of sports experts discussing Michael Sam’s likelihood of making the Rams:
Just more wishful thinking by the Liberal sports media. As I wrote back in May:
Here is the St. Louis Ram you SHOULD be hearing about, and it’s not Michael Sam. It’s the janitor at the Edward Jones Dome, home of the St. Louis Rams. Former Utah State star safety Maurice Alexander’s story is the story on which Obama should be commenting. It’s a story of redemption and showcases the American Spirit; which is why Obama is ignoring it.
Back in 2012, Alexander was sentenced to a year in jail after punching a teammate at a party. No doubt Alexander was likely an angry young man, as most young black men are. His career was derailed, as he plead guilty to a lesser charge, and the judge suspended all but 45 days of the sentence.
For his transgression, Alexander was kicked off the team and returned home to Eureka, Missouri. Alexander actually worked as a janitor as the stadium in which he had hoped he would one day play.
“I always stood at the end of that field and I just looked at it. This could be my dream spot. Look where I’m at now.” – M. Alexander
Alexander would get a second chance.
The team reinstated him in 2013. He had a stellar year at Utah State, and attended the combine, where NFL prospects show their skills.
Alexander ran the 40 in 4.5 seconds, and the Rams had him in for a workout. He rocked it!
He was selected by the Rams in the fourth round as the 110th selection.
Alexander says that his year away from football shaped him into the person he is today. But Obama and the Left aren’t telling this story. Because for them, there is a bigger story about a lesser black athlete who has overcome nothing. All Michael Sam did was announced that he is gay. Today, that’s all it takes for “stardom.”
