"What's a gold medal worth? If you're a straight athlete, apparently quite a bit. If you're gay, well, not so much. I was reminded of this fact again this week with the news that sponsor magnet and 2008 Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps has tarnished his image, while sponsor pariah and 2008 Olympic gold medalist Matthew Mitcham has burnished his (to no avail, yet)."

-- Ben Finzel in his post "What's a Gold Medal Worth?" on the Out Front blog
