Okay I know virtually nothing about hockey as well, because I am not that interested. But ask me about Hollywood musicals, and I am your subject matter expert!
Then this weekend a story about football players caught my attention and WOWZA... I gotta watch this game.
First of all, this guy, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Avanbadejo, came out in favour of gay rights in general and specifically marriage equality:
TANdAnd then this guy, Emmett C Burns, a career politician and asshat, currently a member of the Maryland House of Delegates, who went to the owner of the Ravens and told him to shut the player up... uh, free speech anyone?
Said Burns in the letter: I am requesting that you take the necessary action, as a National Football League Owner, to inhibit such expressions from your employees and that he be ordered to cease and desist such injurious actions. I know of no other NFL player who has done what Mr. Ayanbadejo is doing.
Well, the bigot was wrong, and another pro football player stepped forward with an amazing breathtaking best-letter-ever response. He is this guy, Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe:
Here is his letter... and man I gotta start watching football!
