Your "Winner" Is ...


The results are in, and Deadspin readers have spoken. The most likely athlete candidate to come out of the closet is ... Kordell Stewart!

It was an extremely close race, and we thank all competitors for playing. Hey, it's an honor to be nominated.

The final results:

1. Kordell Stewart. 27.3 percent, 217 votes
2. Mike Piazza. 26.4 percent, 206 votes
3. Peyton Manning. 23.8 percent, 186 votes
4. Tony Stewart. 14.4 percent, 112 votes
5. Bruce Chen. 8.1 percent, 63 votes

We think Chen would have finished higher, but, as some of you have pointed out, most people don't know who that is.
