Tuesday night was a historic night in Maryland and all over the country as it was election night.
Voters in Maryland voted in favor of same sex marriage, and one Raven was thrilled with the result.
Linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo, stated on Wednesday “It’s like I woke up and it’s Christmas.”
Another Ravens player was against the result of the vote, that being safety Bernard Pollard. “There are a lot of guys on this team that stand firmly behind what the Bible says — that a man marries a woman and a woman marries a man.”
Before Tuesday, gays and lesbians had been granted the right to marry by courts and state legislatures, but proponents of gay marriage had been defeated at the polls in more than 30 states.
Ayanbadejo spoke out in favor of same-sex marriage on several occasions, and Maryland voters agreed by a narrow margin.
