Former Crackhead & NY Giant David Tyree Tells Reporter He’d Trade His Super Bowl Win to Stop Gays from Marrying

David Tyree, fromer NY Giant who’s claim to fame years ago was a lucky fluke catch in the SuperBowl told the New York Daily News today that he would trade his famous catch and his Super Bowl XLII win to stop gays from being allowed to marry:

“The catch was a gift, it’s not like I’d try to do it. I couldn’t do it again so that was a miracle,” he said. “There’s nothing worth more than [maintaining heterosexual marriage] right here for me.”

Asked if he’d give up the Super Bowl to stop gay marriage, Tyree said: “Honestly, I probably would.”

“Nothing means more to me than that my God would be honored,” he said. “Being the fact that I firmly believe that God created and ordained marriage between a man and a woman, I believe that that’s something that should be fought for at all costs.” (And the BIG paycheck NOM is giving me)

Now if someone can  explain why a former alcoholic and crackhead whose first two children were born out of wedlock could be a credible witness for “traditional marriage” I’d really appreciate it.
