kissingTMZ is reporting that former Dallas Cowboys recruit Michael Sam, the first openly gay football player drafted by the NFL, is now engaged to his longtime boyfriend, Vito Cammisano. This could very well make him the first NFL player this year to get engaged without first being accused of assaulting his intended or their children.

Seriously, though, we are pleased as punch for our Texan of the Year honoree. If things go well at the 5th Circuit today, they might even be able to hold the ceremony here in Texas. Maybe Dale Hansen will be asked to serve as best man?
