David Tyree Thinks Gay Marriage Will Lead to ‘Anarchy’ (Video)

Former New York Giants receiver David Tyree had an interview with the National Organization for Marriage, an organization whose mission is “to protect marriage and the faith communities that sustain it.” NOM was formed in opposition to the gay marriage movement. Tyree’s words are in contrast to the movement we’ve seen in sports recently. Hockey player Sean Avery supports gay marriage, while the San Francisco Giants and NBA player Steve Nash also support gays. The former Giants Super Bowl hero does not.

Here is a video of David Tyree’s interview with NOM along with the key points transcribed below. During the interview, he says that we are redefining marriage and that passing gay marriage bills is wrong. Here is his interview:

In his interview, Tyree says “I believe that marriage is the only relationship that actually mirrors a relationship with God.” He added that he’s disappointed more players don’t use their platform to speak out against gay marriage which he termed as something “near to God’s heart.”

“It’s not about establishing a theocracy, it’s about what’s right,” Tyree says. “How can marriage be marriage for thousands of years and now all of a sudden because an influential minority has a push or an agenda and totally reshapes something that was not founded in our country, not founded by men, and it’s something that’s holy and sacred. I think there’s nothing more honorable than fighting for, especially if we really care about our future generations.”

David Tyree’s Run Comes to an End

David Tyree is known for one thing and one thing only: making one of the greatest catches in Super Bowl history. Unfortunately, making a memorable catch is good enough to get you tryouts with teams in the NFL but not good enough to land you a roster spot if your ability is not up to par. That’s the case for Tyree who played five seasons for the Giants and 10 games last year with the Ravens. He admitted that he wasn’t really in playing shape and sensed that his retirement was coming. The time has indeed come and Tyree is signing a one-day contract with New York to retire as a Giant. How quaint.

For the occasion of his retirement, let’s roll video of David Tyree’s catch in the Super Bowl. Close your eyes Pats fans:

How the heck Eli escaped the pressure and Tyree made that grab is beyond me. I guess some things are just meant to be. Tyree certainly left his mark on the game and will be remembered by football fans everywhere.

Eli’s Escape: Legendary Play in Super Bowl History

That was it. That was the play that told me wholly shnykees, the Giants are going to win. Initially my thoughts were, “haha, Eli got sacked, it’s over.” Then when that summabitch wouldn’t go down, I changed quickly and said “hot damn, he’s not going to let his team lose.” And that’s what happened. With one play Eli willed his team to victory. And let’s not overlook what made this play so spectacular — the fact that it was completed on the other end with an amazing catch by David Tyree. That’s the type of play where Eli can easily go down or have the pass batted down. Instead it wasn’t, and that’s when you knew grace was with the Giants. Let’s take another look at it as long as the play hasn’t been taken away because of copyright. It was truly amazing and it will always be a legendary play — the stamp on Eli’s career: (in case it’s taken down, try this)

Now don’t let the fact that I’m fawning over this play and moment make you think I’ve turned into an Eli lover. Far from it. I still think he’s a punk for puking out on San Diego the way he did on draft day. I still don’t think he’s one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. I think he has guts and that he comes through late in games (hence, making him a winner), but I still think he’s a punk. Oh yeah, and let’s not forget that his defensive line was awesome and deserves most of the credit for the Super Bowl win. But Eli deserves a tremendous amount as well; he and Tyree combined for the play of the game: Eli’s Escape.

Also, I doubt anyone else has brought this up, but does anyone realize how eerily similar this play was to the 4th down play the Giants blew against the Titans last year when Kiwanuka had Vince Young wrapped up only to let him go? The Titans completed the 4th quarter comeback and everyone rendered VY a hero and the Giants a failure. Guess what went around came around for New York.
