The Human Rights Campaign's series of videos featuring famous New Yorkers in favor of gay marriage scored a big point today with its first video starring a football player. Former Giants defensive end Michael Strahan and his fiancee Nicole Murphy have now joined the ranks of Sean Avery, Moby, Vanessa Williams, Joan Rivers, Ed Koch, Kevin Bacon and the younger Barbara Bush in calling for marriage equality in New York.

The Fox NFL Sunday analyst is, according to the HRC, "our Super Bowl champion for New Yorkers for Marriage," and his support comes as another Albany vote on the issue looms large on the horizon. Strahan is the first pro football player to make a video supporting marriage equality, but maybe he won't be the last. Mark "I love musical theater" Sanchez, are you paying attention?
