Imagine skiing in the Olympics, playing in the NFL and being a professional model. Sound like a fantasy? Not to Jeremy Bloom, who's versatile skill set makes him one of the most unique athletes in the world today.

Jeremy Bloom - He Did It All

Jeremy Bloom's mother was a ski instructor, so naturally he picked up skiing at an early age. When Jeremy was 15 years old, he earned a spot on the US Freestyle Ski Team. At the same time, at Loveland High School, Jeremy shined for the football and track teams. He also earned a blackbelt in Taekwondo by the time he was 12.

Jeremy Bloom - Ski Career

Ranked as the top men's freestyle skiier in the world at just 19 years old, Jeremy went into the 2002 Olympic Games in Salt Lake City as the favorite. Jeremy however, finished a dissapointing ninth. After winning the 2003 and 2005 World Cup Championships, Jeremy got his second chance at a medal at the 2006 Turin Olympic Games. Unfortunately, Jeremy failed to take home a medal again, placing sixth.

Jeremy Bloom - Football Career

Jeremy Bloom accepted a football scholarship to the University of Colorado. Despite his small frame (5'9", 175 lbs.), Jeremy used his speed to excel as a punt returner and wide receiver. He was regarded as one of the top punt returners in the nation. After his sophomore season, the NCAA ruled him ineligible to play because he had accepted endorsement money for skiing. Although Jeremy fought the ruling, he never played another game for Colorado. Immediately after the 2006 Olympics, Jeremy turned his attention to the NFL. He was selected in the fifth round by the Philadelphia Eagles, but sat out the entire 2006-07 season due to an injury.

    I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.

    The Cowboys have cut Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL, from the team. Is this an expression of the conformity policy so deeply rooted in American athletics?
