It would appear that we can’t even joyfully anticipate the NFL Draft without making it a platform to celebrate the LGTBQIA+ agenda.
Colorado State University tight end Trey McBride won the Mackey Award for being the best tight end in college football after amassing 90 passes for 1,121 yards and a touchdown this past season, and he is likely to be the first tight end off the board once the draft starts on Friday.
But his prowess as an athlete will likely not be the main story come this weekend. No, there is a much more important aspect of this athlete that everyone should be focusing on (insert wink emoji).
McBride is set to become the first NFL Draft selectee that has two moms, something NBC’s “Today” was all too glad to highlight.
“They’ve done a great job of pushing me to be the best person of myself, constantly getting support and love,” he said.
While that may be true, this should not be the focal point of an athlete’s rise to being a professional. If he’s a successful athlete or has a particularly inspiring story, then that’s what his coverage should be about.
For once, it would be nice to see the NFL not focus on something woke and just focus on the excitement of adding new athletes to the league. But that’s as likely to happen as it is that Aaron Rodgers will stop being a drama queen.
