    THE FIFTH DOWN: STRAHAN JOINS SAME SEX MARRIAGE CAMPAIGN

    THE FIFTH DOWN: STRAHAN JOINS SAME SEX MARRIAGE CAMPAIGN

    Excerpt: "Michael Strahan, the former Giants’ defensive end, has joined the quest to
    legalize same-sex marriage in New York.


    Following the lead of about three dozen politicians and celebrities,
    including hockey player Sean Avery and basketball player Steve Nash, Strahan
    filmed a public-service announcement in support of the New Yorkers for Marriage
    Equality campaign.</p>


    “As a defensive end for the New York Giants, I always played the game tough
    but fair,” <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UKdqhFBMzc">Strahan said in
    a video recorded earlier this week with his fiancée, Nicole Murphy.</a> “It’s
    unfair to stop committed couples from getting married.”</p>


    The New York State Legislature, which voted against marriage for same-sex
    couples in 2009, is taking up the issue again. A vote is expected before the
    annual session closes on June 20.</p>
    Most of the celebrity endorsers of the same-sex marriage campaign are
    politicians or members of the entertainment, theater or fashion industries.: Read more...

    I agree with you. Good for him.

    Still, there is a TINY part of me that sees a small irony in this, given his ex wife's outrageous charges vs Michael during their divorce proceedings. Don't you? (I'd be willing to bet Michael himself, privately, does as well.)

I new he was with Murphy, but would not of been surprised if this was his way of coming out of the closet. hahaha.

    well I guess I'm the odd man out.

    Welcome to the 21st century and all that, but I am very "Traditional-Minded."

    I am not surprised by his actions as he is a high-profile Celeb and Ex-Pro Athlete and yet...

    I ain't mad at you Stray. It is what it is and Social Change is afoot.

    I don't know what his motivation is but private lives are, private.

    Again, I totally agree with you.

    However, what I refer to is what Strahan wrote himself, in his book. It was reported as news at the time, as well. As we all know by now, if not before, a public figure pretty much forfeits any private life they might wish they had. I don't agree that that SHOULD be the case, but it is a fact of life today.
