Former Giants receiver David Tyree is known for his Super Bowl winning immaculate reception where he pinned Eli Mannings pass to his helmet making a miraculous catch that led to Super Bowl glory. Only now David Tyree is known for something else, being a homophobe. Tyree came out full force against gay marriage today in an interview for the National Organization for Marriage (an anti gay religious group) in the interview Tyree was asked about the push to legalize gay marriage. His response was nothing short of ridiculous.
“This will be the beginning of our country sliding toward anarchy.”
Said Tyree, who than compounded the small-minded statement by saying.
“How can marriage be marriage for thousands of years and now all the sudden because a minority, an influential minority, has a push or agenda … and totally reshapes something that was not founded in our country.”
TMZ then reminded Tyree that forty-four years ago African-Americans received the right to marry internally because of the push of an influential minority, ouch! I guess Tyree spent too much time reading his playbook during African-American studies. [TMZ]
