Manning crushes: Ten reasons straight men might go gay for Peyton Manning

Videos below.
During Peyton Manning's second season as a Denver Bronco, we've overheard quite a few conversations between guys that go something like this: "I'm not gay, but if I was, I'd really go for Peyton Manning."

Why have so many straight dudes in these parts developed a Manning crush -- a fondness for Peyton that goes way beyond admiration for the way he plays? We've come up with ten reasons, illustrated by videos, that at least partly explain this unusual phenomenon. Count them down below.


Number 10: He looks good even when he isn't trying

Earlier this year, Peyton and his brother, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, did a rap parody video for DirecTV in which he donned a goofy wig and silly stage clothes. It's a ridiculous look, yet somehow, he actually pulls it off. If only his real hair was long and luxurious enough to run your fingers through.


Number 9: He makes the most of his limitations

No, Peyton is unlikely to appear on Dancing With the Stars anytime soon. But rather than shying away from demonstrating his footwork on Saturday Night Live, he embraced his lack of funkiness in a way that was capable of making Julia Louis-Dreyfuss on Seinfeld jealous -- and giving dance-challenged men like him a jolt of admiration (and maybe a little something more).

Continue to keep counting down the ten reasons straight men might go gay for Peyton Manning.

This is really 1980s talk. "Go gay"? It's embarrassing to think that people move to Denver and see this anachronistic homophobic crap coming out of their weekly paper. (I remember being shocked when I moved here - the weekly is supposed to be the cutting edge paper on politics, culture, social issues, etc., but in Denver they're actually regressive) Westword really needs to clean house, bring in some more up-to-date (by decades) writers and fb administrators.

I have a man-crush on Peyton and I'm gay, but it's not a gay man-crush thing, it's a "he is a total stud" crush.

A gay guy might also consider looking at the Broncos Cheerleaders and "go straight".

"GO GAY" That's an insult to most GAYS. LOL Does that mean they would just want to have sex or develop a loving relationship with him?

At Steve Palmer, not all gay men like another man's junk in their butt, any more than all straight women like another mans dick in their mouth. Grow up.

Sorry but I wouldn't "go gay" for Jesus himself. Having some other dude's junk in my butt is just not my idea of a good time.
