Seattle Sports Teams Unite for It Gets Better Video

Seattle’s Mariners, Seahwaks, Sounders and Storms have joined forces to send LGBT and other bullied youth the message: It Gets Better!

The video released Friday sees Brandon League and Brendan Ryan of the Mariners, Mike Williams of the Seahawks, Mike Fucito and Roger Levesque of the Sounders, and Lauren Jackson and Swin Cash of the Storm deliver the message that bullying for any reason is not acceptable, and that if you are being bullied, get help to get through this because life does get better.
