Pepsi supports the gays, the gays support Pepsi

If you’ve been paying attention to the gay blogosphere, you may have noticed that a recent English Pepsi ad has earned the ire of the American Family Association because of its gay content. (Helpful hint: Whenever an organization has the word “family” in it, they’re sure to be insane. And probably closeted too, but that’s for another time.”

Here’s the clip in question:

I’m not necessarily bowled over by Pepsi’s inclusiveness given the fact that the buddies are contorting their faces in the final frame as if they’d just watched a lion disembowel a gazelle. But I suppose I’ll take what I can get in terms of gays getting mainstream exposure.

The Super Bowl: Now with more awesomeness

Your editors (or at least the one who cares about football) would like to congratulate our fellow alumnus of the College of William & Mary on becoming the youngest head coach ever to take a team to the Super Bowl. Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin (class of 1995) began his coaching career at Virginia Military Institute, where he worked for Bill Stewart, who is now the head coach of the West Virginia Mountaineers (I have met him; he’s swell). Here’s some trivia to impress your fellow game-watchers: Tomlin is a year younger than the opposing team’s quarterback. And he is an adorable man who resembles Omar Epps a little and he seems nice.

Also, Bruce Springsteen will be there, and the game is being held in the Raymond James Stadium of Tampa, which features a pirate ship at one end. So there’s really something for everyone.
