Well, we™ve all been curious who the first high-profile athlete to announce that they™re gay would be, and now that Houston Comets MVP Sheryl Swoopes has done it, well, we guess we™re still kind of waiting.

High profile enough for you, Will?

    I guess if both A) Your working knowledge of the sporting world was pretty damn weak, and B) Your interest in following sports didn’t go back much further than 2 months ago and your first paycheck from Gawker Media, then it would be easy to forget about Martina Navratilova.

    BB, that’s a little unfair — and just a tad creepy, if you don’t mind my saying so. Alex Reimer-Leitch has clearly been following sports for most of his short life — he can even remember when Joe Buck’s dad was alive!
