Brendon Ayanbadejo to use Super Bowl as same sex platform

Brendon Ayanbadejo is about to as they say show-out at the Super Bowl.

The Baltimore Ravens linebacker is a noted advocate for same-sex marriage.

That is his business. told the New York Times via Fox Sports that he has big plans to put his favorite cause  front and center each and every time that he gets an iota of camera time.

The report states that he has contacted another same sex supporter Brian Ellner and Michael Skolnik who is an editor at  Global Grind.Com and has close ties to rap icon/political activist Russell Simmons.

“Is there anything I can do for marriage equality or anti-bullying over the next couple of weeks to harness this Super Bowl media?” Ayanbadejo wrote in an e-mail, according to the Times.

“It’s one of those times when you’re really passionate and in your zone,” Ayanbadejo told the Times. “And I got to thinking about all kinds of things, and I thought: ‘How can we get our message out there?’”

If the Ravens win Ayanbadejo has plans to visit the The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion but hopefully someone from the Ravens media relations department pulls him aside to tell him that this is not the move to make.

Right, wrong or indifferent, sports is a place where people from different walks of life can find refuge from the various agendas that populate society’s other outlets.

In short, not very many people are trying to hear about this issue when they watch Super Bowl coverage.

There is a time and a place for everything.

Brendon Ayangadejo should limit his  rhetoric to calling the 49ers offense a joke or a gimmick.

The similar diss aimed at the Patriots was much more welcome than this.

Not because he is right or wrong but because he is infringing on the fan’s right to the experience that they came for.
