The same-sex marriage proposal between rival female hockey fans is your video of the week

If a Maple Leafs fan and a Senators fan can put aside their differences for holy matrimony, can world peace be far behind? This sends a positive message for so many reasons: not the least of which is that it’s a same-sex marriage proposal at an NHL hockey game … being presided over by a mascot cat.

In Canada, where same-sex marriage has been legal since 2004, this video is more noteworthy because of the jerseys they’re wearing, not because they’re both women. Beauty, eh.

    It speaks volumes as to how advanced and tolerant we are as a society that a relationship between a Sens fan and a Leafs fan can not only exist in the public eye, but be cheered on by both sides.

    I have to admit, I’m not there yet. I don’t care what team people cheer for in the privacy of their own living room, but they don’t have to flaunt it about in public like this. Yet even I can see this for the beautiful symbol of inclusiveness which it is. Still, if my girlfriend ever brings home a Leafs jersey in a drunken stupor late at night, it’s going to precipitate a very serious discussion about our future together.
