Brendon Ayanbadejo is preparing for the spotlight on and off the field this Super Bowl Sunday.
The Baltimore Ravens linebacker plans to use the February 3 game as a platform to publicize his support for same-sex marriages and his stance against bullying.
According The New York Times, Ayanbadejo emailed gay rights advocates Brian Ellner and Michael Skolnik asking: “Is there anything I can do for marriage equality or anti- bullying over the next couple of weeks to harness this Super Bowl media?”
In what Ayanbadejo is calling his “Jerry McGuire” email, he is hoping that it will inspire others to rally against bullying and support marriage equality.
