Now There’s a Shitty Trade 

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

You may remember David Tyree for his incredible Helmet Catch in Super Bowl XLII. On that play wide receiver Tyree kept the Giants comeback drive going, when he held on to a reception with just one hand, by pressing the football against his helmet.

Apparently, that’s the only kind of ball David Tyree wants pressed against a man’s head, as he’s recently come out in opposition to gay marriage. Tyree even went so far as to state that he’d trade his incredible catch to prevent same-sex marriage from occurring in America.

“Once you allow something like same-sex marriage, it opens up the door for a continual softening to the backbone of our society,” Tyree said. “Which will eventually, for generations to come, open up the door for who knows, polygamy, and all other (things).”

Replace “same-sex” with “interracial”, and you’ve got a quote that would have fit in perfectly fifty years ago, before Loving v. Virginia.
