Bowler Scott Norton shown kissing husband after big win (Video)

scott-norton-kissA potentially landmark television event occurred over the weekend when ESPN showed a professional bowler kissing his husband following a big tournament win.

Scott Norton, a 30-year-old professional bowler, won the WSOB Chameleon Championship in Las Vegas in November. ESPN aired the event over the weekend and included a moment when Norton kissed his husband in celebration of his win.

Leaving in that moment seemed to be a conscious decision by ESPN considering they had nearly two months to edit together the telecast before airing it.

Norton came out publicly and revealed he is gay in May 2011. He got married to his husband, Craig Woodward, later that year.

The win over Jason Belmonte in November produced an extremely emotional moment for Norton, a former PBA Rookie of the Year. Credit to ESPN for leaving in the moment — it was so subtle it would have been hard for most people to catch anyhow. But after seeing the reaction to Torii Hunter’s anti-gay comments, I don’t even want to see what people have to say about this.
