Two of the most talked about figures in the sports world combined on Saturday night, and it was glorious.

With about 11 minutes remaining in the preseason game between the Cleveland Browns and the St. Louis Rams, rookie Rams defensive end Michael Sam busted through to sack Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel and did Johnny Football's famous money sign to celebrate.

As far as we can tell from the video, Manziel didn't elect to flip off Sam for the affront.

Sam made headlines earlier this season after becoming the first openly gay player to make an NFL team's roster.

Manziel has made headlines for, well, every single thing he does, really, but most recently for losing the Browns' quarterback competition to Brian Hoyer.

Thankfully, the world didn't explode when the two media phenoms collided.
