Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe sat down with Ellen DeGeneres this week to talk about his ongoing efforts to defend gay marriage.
Kluwe was a major supporter of the "Vote No" campaign against the proposed Minnesota marriage amendment on the ballot last November, WCCO reports.
During the segment, Kluwe talks about the scathing letter he sent to a Maryland lawmaker and a new generation in the NFL.
Ellen, a Green Bay Packers fan, accepted a game-worn jersey from Kluwe and admits to rooting for him when Minnesota plays Green Bay.
The show airs on WCCO at 4 p.m. Friday. Here's most of the segment:
The release of Kluwe's book "Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies" is scheduled for June 25. The collection of uncensored personal essays covers issues from faith and government to human rights and professional sports.
