Chris Kluwe's Wife Isabel Kluwe

We're a bit late to this story but it's one that is worth covering. Our story kicks off with Brendon Ayanbadejo, a backup linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens, speaking out in favor of gay marriage being legalized in Maryland. This prompted Maryland state delegate Emmett C. Burns Jr. to write a letter to the owner of the Ravens, asking that he "inhibit such expressions from [his] employee". Beyond being a ridiculous request, the letter also clearly flew in the face of the first ammendment - something you likely wouldn't expect from an employee of the government and supposed voice of the people.

And then Chris Kluwe, punter for the Minnesota Vikings, got involved and things got interesting. Kluwe wrote a profanity-laced diatribe to Mr. Burns that, besides being very supportive of gay marraige, was also pretty hilarious. One such highlight that you may enjoy (though we have left the more NSFW bits to the link above):

I would like to remind you that the very first, the VERY FIRST Amendment in this founding document deals with the freedom of speech, particularly the abridgment of said freedom. By using your position as an elected official (when referring to your constituents so as to implicitly threaten the Ravens organization) to state that the Ravens should "inhibit such expressions from your employees," more specifically Brendon Ayanbadejo, not only are you clearly violating the First Amendment, you also come across as a narcissistic fromunda stain.

Chris Kluwe's wife Isabel Kluwe has likely received more attention than she is used to thanks to her husband's political statement. Since this isn't Chris' first rodeo (he once publically called Drew Brees and Peyton Manning, among others, "douchebags"), we're guessing that she's used to it.

The former Isabel Alvarado met her future husband while he attended UCLA. Isabel worked in the recruiting office and, at least according to Chris, was impressed with his test scores. For her part however, she says that he was "... pretty clueless, to be quite honest. I didn't know he was a football player. I thought he was a soccer player". Either way, the two began dating during his first year, and eventually were married during his senior year, in May of 2004. Chris and Isabel now have two daughters: Remy and Olivia.

    I write for the Tribune as a Vikings' fan blogger. Just today I had to research Chris' personal life to defend him on a social network. And so I found this. Just wanted to say "Power to the People" to you all. Amazing we have to take stands for individual rights despite a Constitution that says exactly that. Go Vikings, and maybe more importantly, go People!

    Dear Sir:
    I am also a member of the Bruin family, class of '73.
    After reading your interview in the UCLA Magazine it thrills me to know that in some small
    way I am affiliated with you. I approve of your views on individual rights and I also believe
    that you are correct on physical fitness and consumerism.
    Your writing style is superb; the only other time that chuckle as often is when I am
    reading Mark Twain.
    When you get the time read a book called Amusing Ourselves to Death by Neil Postman.
    Postman expands on your view of bread and circuses and it's pernicious affect on
    American society. You will enjoy it!
    Good Luck,
    Michael Schneiderman

    He needs to be friends with Matt Damon. Both of them have the fugliest wives I've ever seen, and so his kids are really unattractive. Like Damon's kids.
