Super Bowl Hero Tyree: Gay Marriage Will Lead to Anarchy
Former New York Giant wide receiver and Super Bowl hero David Tyree has spoken out against gay marriage, saying that it will lead to “anarchy” and that it is an “injustice” to God.
…here we go.
Tyree, whose incredible ball-to-helmet catch was a key play in the Giants’ historic drive to win Super Bowl XLII over the Patriots, appeared in a 6-minute video interview with conservative group National Organization for Marriage (NOM) in which he spoke out against gay marriage. Watch below:
This comes days after another heroic New York footballer–defensive stalwart Michael Strahan–appeared in a video supporting gay marriage, as Governor Andrew Cuomo prepares to send a bill to the state legislature that would allow gay couples to marry in New York. The measure is apparently one Republican vote short in the Senate, and Tyree’s public address is no doubt an effort to keep it that way.
Tyree has a fair amount of cache in New York and New Jersey for his phenomenal, mind-blowing, and, maybe, lucky helmet catch in the incredible Eli Manning drive that sealed the unlikely Super Bowl win against the Patriots. My guess is that he will forever be beloved by Giants fans, regardless of sexual orientation or opinions on the legality or morality of gay marriage. Whether or not this truly tarnishes (or bolsters) his legacy depends on his reaction to the uproar this video has caused. The Human Rights Campaign has released a statement, and he is getting reamed by the liberal press and the Twitterati.
Smart money says he’ll release a statement hedging on the word ‘anarchy,’ apologize if he offended anyone, but remain committed to his opposition to same-sex marriages, and that this whole thing blows over by Monday. Stay tuned.
