Kluwe's classy move

I figure y'all know about Chris Kluwe, so I won't offer an introduction. Here's the latest great thing he did. (And remember, he's a straight guy.)
Former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe says he's reached a settlement with the team to avert a threatened lawsuit over his release.

Kluwe had accused the Vikings of cutting him over his activism on gay rights issues. He said Tuesday that the Vikings have agreed to donate to several nonprofits to help raise awareness in professional sports about LGBT issues. Those include the Matthew Shepard Foundation and a charity run by openly gay retired NFL player Wade Davis.

Kluwe says he'll get no money in the settlement.
See, that's the thing with Kluwe: it's not all about him. How refreshing. Chris Kluwe is definitely one of my heroes. How can I not love a straight guy who advocates for gays in the football world? Watta guy!
