hobnobs: (40 Kung Fu Master)
I'm not a Merkin (or Canuckian) so events over the other side of the pond are largely irrelevant to my life in a "direct effect" way, but I do try to keep half an ear out for what goes on over there and occasionally will discover something that makes me shake my head in disbelief/laugh out loud with joy/be impressed at something. (delete as applicable, or "as inapplicable" to be accurate.)

This one made me shake my head... A Maryland State Delegate (and apparently a Baltimore Ravens fan) sent a letter to the owner of the Ravens when one of their players, Brendon Ayanbadejo, spoke out in favour of gay marriage

Link to Delegate's letter.

But Chris Kluwe, a player for the Minnesota Vikings, took exception to the Delegate's letter and sent an open letter to deadspin.com as a response. I was impressed, to say the least...

Always nice to see sportsmen showing their intelligence, and bigots and idjits being shown up...
