    @0:36 vid shows Scott's parents, announcer identifies: "scott's parents"
    @1:04 vid shows Belmonte's family, announcer identifies: "belmonte's family, wife & parents."
    @2:12 vid shows the kiss, audience reacts, announcer identifies no one.

    Is equal billing not yet on the agenda?

    That was a very quick peck. It's too bad he didn't give him some tongue. And is the other bowler gay too? (he looked like it)

    Is the announcer not allowed to be at a loss for words? It did seem to be a tender moment and he did announce it as such moments after.

    Yes, of course, and you are right to bring that to attention. Though, to clarify, it was not my intent to single out the announcer as acting homophobic, thus my mentioning "audience reacts" which it did in a noticeably hushed tone, but to bring to notice that just by our being ourselves "they" are "at a loss for words".

    There seems a reinforcing aspect to society and even in interpersonal relationships whereby we get so used to things as they have been that they become habit difficult to change, seemingly held in place by a history of behavior or of familiarlity. We become comfortable with things the way they have been and uncomfortable with change even when change is more beneficial.

    I remember back in my mid30s I dealt with this issue when I wanted to stop smoking which was so much a part of my self image that I viewed others as seeing me smoking cigarettes even when I wasn't and I had to consciously work to wipe that unconscious image from my mind in order to see myself not smoking so that I could stop.

    People don't see us as human beings, doing things that human beings do, and so they are able to deny us our human rights. And we look at them looking at us and in some ways it seems we see ourselves as they see us.
