Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe teed off on a Maryland state delegate in a big way Sept. 7, in an open letter posted on Deadspin.
In a profanity-laced polemic in favor of gay rights and free speech, Kluwe ripped Emmett C. Burns Jr., a Maryland politician who asked Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti to silence a player who'd spoken up for gay rights.
Raven Brandon Ayanbadejo has said he favors a ballot initiative in Maryland that would allow gay marriage. In response, Burns told Bisciotti to "inhibit such expressions from your employee."
