This whole thing angers me for several reasons. Apparently Josina Anderson, reporter for ESPN, never listened to Salt N’ Pepa because she would have known that nosing around the St. Louis Rams’ training facility asking about the 411 on the shower “sitch” ever since Michael Sam showed up is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.
