    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Here's a look at what's trending on the web today!

    College football star says he's gay:

    A University of Missouri football player, the southeast conferences' defensive player of the year, and an expected NFL draft pick announced Sunday that he is gay. It's one of the top stories on the web.

    If an NFL team drafts him later this year, as expected, he'll become the first openly gay professional football player. Sam said he told his college teammates last August.

    In a statement, the NFL said it admires Sam's honesty and courage. He's projected to be a mid-round pick in this May's draft.

    Arkansas native, DeAngelo Williams, currently plays for the Carolina Panthers. He tweeted this reaction - "I could care less about a man's sexual preference! I care about winning games and being respectful in the locker room."


    'Flappy Bird' game no longer available:

    The popular game 'Flappy Bird' is no longer available in Apple's app store or on Google Play.

    The game came down Sunday, one day after its developer tweeted "I can't take this anymore."

    Flappy Bird was reportedly pulling in $50,000 a day in ad revenue.

    The good news is if you've already downloaded the game, you should still be able to play it.


    Man sculpts 'Snowbama':

    A teacher in Connecticut sculpted a frozen tribute to the country's 44th president.

    Meet President Barack "Snowbama!" David Sepulveda spent a school snow day crafting the giant snow sculpture of President Obama's head. He said the snow was heavy and wet -- perfect for sculpting.



    Man makes homemade ice stunt course
    :

    More snow fun in Minnesota as one man turns his backyard into a ice course.

    The college student and hockey player built his very own "crushed ice course" in his parents' backyard.

    Cole Meyer sprayed water on this snowy hillside several times a day for two weeks, until it was just right.

    Now he's showing off his slick moves on the frozen ramps and slopes.

    Make no mistake, this track is not for amateurs. Meyer said he was inspired to build the track after seeing the "Red Bull crushed ice" stunt course in Saint Paul.
