NFL Tight End Tony Gonzalez of the Atlanta Falcons and His Wife October Pose for an Anti Fur Ad: Gonzalez Again Living Up to His Words


As readers of this blog know, I’m a big fan of Tony Gonzalez. Ever since his decision to look more closely at his decisions in terms of food, I’ve seen a positive role model for a more compassionate life. I wrote about his promotion of a diet with less meat in this article - http://geari.blogspot.com/2008/08/kansas-city-chiefs-all-pro-tight-end.html .

He’s obviously since learned more about the realities of life, including the horrors of the fur industry. I thank you again Tony for being a real man and stepping up to educate. You are bringing others with you. We need guys like you.

Proving his new outlook, here is a great quote from him regarding fur: ''We should be protecting animals, not sacrificing their lives for the sake of fashion or luxury,'' Gonzalez says. ''October and I have changed many of our habits in light of the inhumane treatment of animals that occurs not only in the fur industry but also on factory farms.''

No nudes is good news.

So it appears to the naked eye — as well as other body parts.
There will be no reference to tight ends in this caption: Tony Gonzalez of the Atlanta Falcons and wife October pose for an animal rights ad campaign from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

Quick Hits promises not to make any wisecracks about tight ends or make anyone the butt of any jokes, but ...

Tony Gonzalez of the Atlanta Falcons (yes, he plays tight end) and his wife October appear in a new ad for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. They also appear to be totally unclothed.

''We had clothes on,'' Gonzalez told media in Atlanta on Wednesday.

It would appear that seeing is disbelieving, if Gonzalez is to be believed.

''We should be protecting animals, not sacrificing their lives for the sake of fashion or luxury,'' Gonzalez says. ''October and I have changed many of our habits in light of the inhumane treatment of animals that occurs not only in the fur industry but also on factory farms.''

The Falcons had a chance to see the ad and gave Gonzalez some typical locker-room reaction.

''My wife is a pretty woman,'' Gonzalez said. ''She's like a flower. It's nice to be looked at.''

Hey, as long as it's OK with him ...
