Sheryl Swoopes comes out

I would say that this is the biggest story in Sports this year. The biggest star of a sport just came out of the closet. Jus the second time in sports that this has happenned (see martina navratilova). The WNBA isn’t the biggest sport but it is popular enough and enough people know about Sheryl Swoopes that it should have a positive impact on society. Since Sports is all about the $$ I would really be interested to know if 1. She gets endorsements etc, 2. The WNBA will continue to market her, 3. What the backlash is. Two great articles in ESPN:
