Small Bite: Watch the emotional, historical moment!

Full Platter:

One of the more emotional endings to bowling's biggest prize, 2012 PBA Chameleon Championship happened in Vegas this weekend when newly crowned champ Scott Norton shared a tearful kiss with his husband Craig Woodward on national television.

According to outsports.com, this could have been a moment for sports history books, being possibly the first kiss between men shown on ESPN in the history of the network.

"Our airing of Scott Norton's spontaneous moment with his husband was about capturing the emotion of the victory, as we would with any bowler celebrating with his or her family," Marcia Keegan, ESPN's vice president of production said in a statement.

Reports said that Woodward was noted as Norton's husband and spouse multiple times throughout the evening broadcast. Considering gay marriage and LGBTQ rights are almost non-existant topics in the sports world, this was a huge moment, whether it was a first or not. There are few, if any, openly gay male professional athletes.

JW, a gay bowler who runs iabowling.tv, made these remarks about the touching moment:

"It was nice to see the telecasters step into the 21st century and treat Scott’s homosexuality as just a matter of fact and not a sensation. The focus was upon how well he was playing. They did mention that Scott came out after his win in 2011 during the telecast... His accomplishment is notable because this is his second win and that makes him a rising star on the PBA tour, who happens to be gay and married to a man. Just good stuff all around."

Norton defeated Jason Belmonte for the championship. This emotional, historic moment can be seen at the 2:10 mark here.
