Yes, there were people revolted by that kiss. At least one responded by saying, please, my children were watching! But many commentators say this kiss will do a lot for our movement. In the same manner as a gay couple moving next door, most people seeing a beefy football payer kissing like that will have their views of us adjusted for the better.
Stephen Colbert watches the kiss and throws a yellow flag on the play. The video is about 4 minutes.
For the best response we turn to ESPN Producer Seth Markman (the guy who put the kiss on the air), his wife and son:
When Markman's wife explained to their 7-year-old son that dad was busy working on something that was controversial, Sam’s kiss on TV, the boy replied: “Is it because they’re not married?”So the sports world wobbled over the weekend -- into a better place.
