Brendon Ayanbadejo is a linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens and one of the most outspoken gay rights activists in professional sports.
First, let us say congrats on winning the Super Bowl!!
Second, being a straight pro athlete and "coming out" as a supporter of gay rights must be hard to do.
But Brendon knows that coming out as openly gay would be even harder for a player due to the generally homophobic atmosphere that dominates pro sports.
