Sean Avery isn't exactly someone you'd expect to utter a politically correct, enlightened statement on gay marriage. He's stuck his skate boot in his mouth more than a few times in the past, and once was suspended six games for saying something truly nasty about a former girlfriend.
But you know what? When somebody does the right thing, he deserves a pat on the back of the jersey. And even though the Garden didn't back him up with a supportive statement, leaving Avery out there on his own, the fact that a hockey brawler would appear on a video in support of gay nuptials is a breakthrough of sorts.
