Gay Sports Champions Part I

From Hugo Schwyzer

This leads me to my observation: legalizing gay marriage is good for sports teams. Spain did it a few years back, and wham, they win the Euro for the first time since 1964. Canada did it just before the 2006 Winter Olympics, and bingo, they had their best-ever medal haul. South Africa legalized gay marriage in 2006, and won the Rugby World Cup the following year. Massachusetts gave same-sex couples the right to wed a few years ago and ask Red Sox and Celtic fans about how nicely things have gone for their teams since. For all those folks who insist that Gods punishment for gay marriage will be obvious, so far the evidence is, um, lacking. The evidence for the opposite is growing.
If California upholds gay marriage at the ballot box in November, I predict championships for USC football, UCLA basketball, the Los Angeles Lakers and the Anaheim Angels all within short order.

Come on- what are you waiting for, Minnesota? The veep nod can wait, Pawlenty.
