Michael Sam Gets Down Shirtless at Missouri Gay Bar: VIDEO


TMZ tracked down footage of Missouri defensive end Michael Sam getting some impressive grooves on to Michael Jackson's "Rock with You" at the SoCo nightclub in Columbia, Missouri a few months ago.

The gridiron isn't the only place this player's got moves!

  3. Gay bar? Is this one of those cases where straight women have bachelorette parties at gay bars? He was dancing for women.

  5. This was a birthday party for one of ladies who works in the AD office at Mizzou.

  7. I think that is a first: an attractive man dancing with his shirt off. I would go as far to say that in 2014, any man who fancies himself good looking, has probably danced somewhere with his shirt off. Where's the news...NEXT!!!

  8. Even though this took place some time ago, he deserves every bit of fun and relaxation a person can have!!!

  9. It's a shame that we're here participating in exactly what Sam tried NOT to have happen when he came out: make it all about gay this-and-that and sexual overtones. It's the equivalent to Rush Limbaugh saying no one should vote for Hillary because she'd get heavier as she hit middle age.

  10. Apparently this was taken at a club Sam frequented while in school (he's now 24, so has been legal for a while to drink). It's not officially a gay bar, from what I've read, but a very gay-friendly place.

    As for the shirtless stuff - Gronk did it in Vegas, all the gay men and straight women lusted after him, but somehow that's not a problem.

  11. No, SoCo is the gayest place in Columbia. But, as with many midwestern gay bars, there are lots of women (gay and straight) that go there.

  12. Nobody is sexualizing Sam.
    He did this last year after he came out at college.

    Sam is news. He's NY Times front page news. Should gay web blogs pretend he doesn't exist? Or that he doesn't have a life off the gridiron?

    Sam is entitled to every bit of fun and happiness he gets. He's entitled to play professional football also. That's the point of our celebrating him and championing him. To give him those assurances that his community loves him, wants him to be happy, and has his back.

  13. TMZ is cheap and exploitative. It's allegedly owned by a distasteful gay man. Towleroad also appears to be going down this path.

  14. @Boom, I'd be more convinced if the first comments didn't state outright that their minds are going to a dirty place. It's tawdry and sensationalistic.

  15. I'm in love!!

  16. Can he be any more perfect?

  17. Super sexy and fun to boot!

  18. @ Dastius. It's Columbia Missouri, they have to do double duty to survive.

  19. @HRM
    Like any comments board you're going to get people's views from gawdknowswhat angle. Maybe poster no one's tail feathers are up today and if so good for him. His comment was hardly tawdry, 'mind went to a dirty place' is pretty tame actually. When something is really over the top or indefensible others on this board usually respond negatively to it. I bet Michael would get a kick out of knowing a short video of him dancing shirtless gave someone a thrill. Point is Michael took his shirt off and danced (openly in a gay bar) not because the larger gay community asked him to or coerced him into it but because he's young, full of life, he wanted to and he had the support of every young Tiger in Missouri.

  20. Contrast this fine man to the grotesque "Prancing Elites" who were featured here a few months ago. I hope they are watching this. They can learn how a man dances.

  21. Could TMZ pump up their logo a little bit more? I had trouble seeing it clearly with all that dancing going on!
