Cultural Oddsmaker: Who's The Next Gay Athlete?

With Sheryl Swoopes' earth-shaking announcement that she was (no!) a lesbian, tongues are wagging (sorry) about who the next — i.e., actually surprising — athlete to come out of the closet will be. Our friends at Oddjack have helpfully lay out the odds on five heavily rumored to be gay athletes, picking the favorites, and why.

We'll be doing our first ever Deadspin Poll on this later this afternoon, but for now, just enjoy Oddjack's arguments for Bruce Chen, Kordell Stewart, Mike Piazza, Tony Stewart and, of course, Peyton Manning.

Personally, our money's on Kordell, but, then again, it always has been.
