Life can imitate art, but can that be turned into sports imitating life?

Last week before the Super Bowl, San Fransisco 49ers Cornerback Chris Culliver told media in New Orleans,

"I don't do the gay guys. I don't do that."

"We don't have any gay guys on the team…They gotta get up outta here if they do.

Culliver’s comments ignited a brief firestorm in the media before the Super Bowl and the 49ers and Culliver apologized, but the story fell to the wayside.

This week a Baltimore Ravens linebacker made the media rounds saying the Ravens won the game because of “love.”

Brendon Ayanbadejo before the Super Bowl said he would use is his platform to support gay rights and has appeared on national news networks saying the game was won because of love.
