This makes me want to marry the NHL.

Game on, and keep your stick on the ice.

mudesi: There's still 10 billion years before the sun runs out of fuel and goes supernova. I assume the Leafs might get a cup sometime between now and then.

Maybe.


Argument with a friend earlier: Who has the longest drought -- The Leafs, or the Kings and Blues (both expansion teams from the same year) or is it a three-way tie? If memory serves, the Leafs won the Cup the spring before LA and St. Louis came in.

In Canada, three-in-five respondents want same-sex marriage to continue to be legal.

Australians are more likely than Americans and Britons to call for legislation that would allow same-sex marriage in their country, a new survey conducted by Angus Reid Public Opinion has found.

In the online survey of representative national samples in four countries, half of Australians (49%) believe same-sex couples in their country should be allowed to legally marry.

In Britain and the United States, smaller proportions of respondents (43% and 42% respectively) agree with this idea.

In Canada, where same-sex marriage has been legal since 2005, 59 per cent of respondents believe same-sex couples should continue to be allowed to legally marry.

Americans are more likely to believe that same-sex couples should not have any kind of legal recognition (27%, compared to 15% in Britain and 14% in both Australia and Canada).

Several American states have held referendums on the definition of marriage. If a referendum took place in Australia, a majority of respondents (52%) would vote to define marriage as between two people, while 43 per cent would define marriage as between a man and a woman. Britons are evenly split on this question, while a plurality of Americans would vote to keep the current definition of marriage.

A majority of Canadians (59%) and Australians (53%)-and half of Britons (49%)-believe that people are born gay. Only 40 per cent of Americans agree with this notion, while one third (34%) believe people choose to be gay. In the four countries, at least half of respondents acknowledge that they have close friends or relatives who are openly gay or lesbian (Australia 65%, Canada 62%, United States 56%, Britain 51%).

I like those stats, thanks for the interesting post.

Thank you for posting that. I had no idea something like that was going on. (I'm old, plus I don't follow hockey that much)

Does anyone know if there are actually any openly gay hockey players?

Currently playing? In the past?

I think public wedding proposals - especially those that are designed as a major spectacle - are just vulgar and cheap.

There hasn't been yet. The NHL will be the first of the big 4 to have an openly gay player. Why? The large amounts of Canadians and Scandinavians (areas where they have gay equality and have realized that the world didn't end when they did it).

NOW you tell me


Seriously, I am so happy with the NHL for doing this. When I played in college, a guy on the team was gay, and while he asked that no one said anything outside the locker room he only wanted us to know so no one would be freaked out by it. He offered to wait until everyone else was out of the room to shower or whatever.

No one on the team cared. It made no difference to anyone, in essence - he could play. That's all that mattered. By contrast, in high school, on the baseball team there was a guy who got beat up in the locker room because he was from New York.

Hockey players are good folk. I am glad to see the list of names who are putting their support behind this.

Tim Thomas is proof that involvement with the tea party crowd causes one to lose one's mind. His official Facebook page is full of RON PAUL and Ronald Reagan quotes. Though, if you're going with hockey players who deliberately draw attention to themselves, I'd pick Sean Avery, who, if he was gay, would probably come out just to get more media attention, judging from his long track record of AW'ing.

Seriously though, if I had to guess, I'd wager that there are probably NHL players who aren't out publicly but who are out to their teammates. Back right after Brendan Burke came out and the hockey media was going around asking players how they'd react if a teammate came out, it seemed like some of the players responded in ways that seemed like they thought the reporter was trying to trick them into outing teammates.

On the one hand, I'm all in favor of marriage equality and as a hockey fan am very pleased that the NHL is coming out on the right side of this issue.

On the other hand, as a Sabres fan, I am categorically opposed to anything that makes Leafs and Sens fans happy, so I'm going to have to disapprove of this one.

2012-03-19 11:06:37 AM  
I just think it's weird that they brought them out on the ice. Every other time there's a proposal in the house, it's in the stands.

That part of it makes me think publicity stunt.

But good luck to the couple.

/also, you guys can stop it already with the "hockey people are the best people" in every single hockey thread. Yeesh.

IIRC Avery openly supported any minor player that was having issues coming out to his team. I remember that because it was the first non-douchebag action Avery has done.

He also was the first athlete to film a New Yorkers for Marriage Equality video. You're right, that's the only time he isn't a douchebag. It's pretty funny in his marriage equality video when he talks about how he always treats people like he wants to be treated, given his track record.

Sean Avery was quite possibly the worst judge they've ever had on Project Runway. For someone who supposedly knows so much about fashion, had a Vogue internship, etc, about all he could offer was, "If I saw a woman walking down the street wearing that, I'd definitely look twice."

Schilling also started a company, hired hundreds of employees, and made a pretty kick-ass game, all out of his own pocket. So, say what you will, but he's actually done what liberals like to pretend that they do.

Avery wasn't as big of an asshole as people make him out to be. Yes he was an agitator and he 'chirped' a lot. But did you know he never got a suspension for an on-ice hit? The only suspension he ever got was for hurting Dion Phaneuf's feelings.
