"Before New York’s momentous legalization of marriage equality this summer, former New York Giants player David Tyree made a video with the National Organization for Marriage. 'It’s a strong word,' said the wide receiver, but gay marriage is the beginning of America’s slide toward 'anarchy.' But his ominous warning may be becoming more of an exception than the rule in American locker rooms. Consider the emerging critical mass of athletes publicly supporting marriage equality and challenging homophobia."
