Poll: Rank Jason Collins' Place In Gay Sports History

USA TODAY Sports

In our latest Outsports podcast, we debated the place of Jason Collins' coming out on the list of greatest moments in gay sports history.

Jim thought it was an obvious No. 1, while Cyd disagreed and said it might not even make his Top 10. You can listen to our reasons on the podcast, but we wanted to hear from you.

Take our poll and in the comments, please tell us why you voted the way you did.
