Brendon Ayanbadejo wanted to win the Super Bowl--but not before tackling marriage. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. Usually, it's the halftime show that gets people into an uproar at the Super Bowl. But this year, Brendon Ayanbadejo did his best to spread the controversy around. For weeks leading up to the game, he was emailing homosexual groups, asking what he could to promote same-sex "marriage" at the world's biggest football game. Sports reporters jumped on the story, painting him as some sort of civil rights hero. That frustrated teammates like Matt Birk who'd spoken out against same-sex "marriage" in November. Imagine, said a football analyst, if Matt tried to use the Super Bowl as a platform for natural marriage. The NFL would have fined him! For now, it looks like Brendon's strategy may have backfired. "Can we just watch a football game without this agenda in our face?" said a fan. If the League wants to focus on rings, they should stick with the Super Bowl's.
