Super Bowl Champ Brendon Ayanbadejo for Marriage Equality: VIDEO

B_ayanbadejo

Taking advantage of the momentum from the Super Bowl, the Respect for Marriage Coalition has retooled an interview with Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo that he did last fall for the Marylanders for Marriage campaign into a new video that's getting renewed attention because of the Ravens win.

As always, Ayanbadejo is articulate and his words powerful.

Congrats on your Super Bowl win!

  3. So nice to see a decent football player with a brain. Glad they won!

  4. By the way, Brendon did a really great CNN interview with Don Lemon this morning about marriage equality (which I just happened to catch before I left for work). I haven't checked out youtube to see if anyone's posted it, but he was as articulate and gracious as ever.

  5. Also, if anyone is interested, this link is Scott Fujita of the Cleveland Browns, a consistent marriage equality advocate, like Brendon, like Chris. A commercial for the cause:

  6. Brendon is amazing. And how sad to see the SF 49ers being so homophobic. San Francisco, you let us down.

  8. As a lifelong Bay Area resident, I was sorry to see my 49ers lose. HOWEVER, it was great to see Brendon (a Bay Area native) have a good game, and Chris Culliver get beat on some key plays. Culliver is getting a tough time in the sports pages around here today.

  10. It's amazing that the Ravens were the pro-equality team, and San Francisco's team was the one littered with bigots -- running, not walking -- away from their "It Gets Better" video. /sigh

    The worst part of it all is that I couldn't even root for Baltimore. After all, they have Ray Lewis on their team... and he was involved in someone's murder and basically got away scott free.

  11. Everytime I see this young man I think how proud his parents should be be.

  12. love him!

  13. I'm a Niner fan but thank goodness for players like him!

    Also, it's sooo hard to believe that this guy is 36 years old! THIRTY SIX! I thought he was in his 20s!

  14. Thank you Brendon. Living in San Francisco, I was appalled by the comments of a few of the 49ers. I am so happy for you and the Ravens' victory. It was hard to root against the 49ers, but in reality, you represent our values better than our own team. I'm glad you won.

  16. Well that didn't take too long (him keeping his promise for using a win to promote marriage equality)!

  17. Like many previous commentors, I'm also a Niner fan. Sad to see them lose but I'm so glad for the amazing young man's support. Thirty-six years old!? He looks great. Congrats to him. The deserving team won.

  18. I love this guy. I am not a football fan but I was cheering him on to win the Superbowl. He deserves it. A great and smart man speaking out for others less fortunate even when it means putting his own reputation at risk.

  19. This is the great interview Brendon gave on CNN. This guy is SUPER SMART and ARTICULATE.

  20. Thank you, Brendon for everything you've done. I hope your son recovers well in this difficult time for you and your family. My thoughts are with your family.
