Baltimore Raven Brendon Ayanbadejo Video Supports Marriage Equality

Brendon Ayanbadejo who plays American football for the Baltimore Ravens has issued a video endoring the Maryland marriage equality bill.  (And don't forget, you can join GLAA, GetEQUAL DC, and HRC members at an HRC Phone Bank tonight.)

Somewhat related, I have to ask what is the fascination about the NFL and gay players? The GLAA Forum has published at least three articles related to American football. By far the most viewed article was "LaRon Landry is enormous" with more than 3 times as many pageviews than anything else. I guess people thought we were outing him, when the reality is than Rick just admires his body. The number two article was "WaPo Asks: Is the NFL Ready for an Openly Gay Player?" Our third posting was about an actual gay NFL player, and a Redskin at that: "Jerry Smith - Washington Redskin (1965-1977)" Why do you suppose he isn't a hall of famer?
