(FOX NEWS) A high school classmate of Minnesota Twins pitcher Carl Pavano threatened to reveal an alleged homosexual relationship they had and to write a book about it unless Pavano apologized to him and bought him a navy Range Rover SUV with tan leather, according to a search warrant affidavit filed by police in Connecticut. Police in Pavano’s hometown of Southington, about 18 miles southwest of Hartford, said in the affidavit that they began investigating the allegations after Pavano’s sister, Michelle DeGennaro, complained in December that she had received several troublesome Facebook messages from the classmate, Christian Bedard. DeGennaro told police that Bedard made up a bogus story about having a relationship with her brother in an attempt to extort her family. Officers executed the search warrant at Bedard’s home on March 21 and seized items, but wouldn’t say what they were. Bedard said on his Facebook page that police took his laptop computer, material relating to his relationship with Pavano and the book he was writing. Bedard hasn’t been charged. The search warrant affidavit, first reported by the Record-Journal of Meriden, includes copies of several Facebook messages Bedard allegedly sent to DeGennaro. In the messages, Bedard said Pavano was his “first love” and they had a three-year relationship when they were teenagers growing up in Southington, the affidavit says.
“I have serious juicy book offers … to the point that the only way your brother is getting out of this … is with a heartfelt apology and a navy range rover with tan leather,” Bedard allegedly wrote to DeGennaro, according to police. “If I’m going to drop a 1.2 million dollar book deal I want something. That is my best offer an apology and a land rover and I’ll kill the project,” Bedard wrote referring to the book deal, according to the affidavit. Bedard told The Associated Press in a statement that he wanted an apology because of how Pavano treated him at the end of their relationship.
Here are some of the messages that Bedard sent to Pavano’s sister, DeGennaro:
“You people are in such denial…when we were 17…we came to a party at your house in new britain…you called your mom who called my mom….who said we had too much…so ya he stopped talking to me when I was 14…the truth is the truth….can’t sue me for that… going to come up with another lie to cover the one you just told???? this book was written for me to find closure in my Iife…I apologise for calling you fat….I know you always had an issue with your weight….and for me to say that was just rude…I just want closure in my life and that’s only going to come from your brother….you can all dance around it….maybe I was the only guy?…whatever…… I don’t care about money….not rich…not poor… I have two beautiful nieces who keep me in check…especially about every princess dress ever made, because uncle christian has bought them all….whats rough is he was my first love…and it was a three yr relationship…obviously underground…. people have told me let it go…things can happen in your life that affect you for the rest of it….I wish this had happened with joe the plumber…some no name…I’m not gaining at all…ya I have serious juicy book offers…to the point that the only way your brother is getting out of this…is with a heart felt apology and a navy range rover with tan leather…if I’m going to drop a 1.2 million dollar book deal I want something…”
“lol…the funny part is I expected your nasty messages…I wouldn’t expect anything less from a group of racist homophobes…you brother can deny it to then end… that’s exactly what I expected, I have more than enough witnesses and proof…and in the end he’s just going to look like a complete liar when the book comes out in late spring…and in the meantime your all going to be thrown under the bus for being exactly what you people are, racist homophobes….no wonder he wound never come clean about it..like a jew living with a bunch of nazi’s…it’s the 21 century…the general public doesn’t take nice to your type…”
“if your brother is having memory loss…remind him how I would sneaking in the window of what is now your grandmothers apartment every weekend…or better yet the time when I think we were sixteen and went to Atlantic city the day after Christmas because your uncle was painting the condo there…and how we were laughing and psyched when your father told us we can take the bed… ask him what “Big Wheeling and “Sp ing” means…that might jog his memory…”
First question that comes to everyone’s mind: Was Pavano the pitcher or the catcher in the relationship? I’d like to think that he was the catcher more often then not, just to switch things up a bit… I’d also like to say that I am surprised but this really doesn’t come to me as a shocker… when you think of how many male professional athletes there are out there, it’s pretty much guaranteed that a good number have their own similar stories to that of Pavano’s… let’s face it, do you seriously think Pavano is the first gay major leaguer ever? And before anyone says anything, you are all just ssthhooooo wrong about Mike Piazza… and I’m almost positive that there have only been a handful of straight players to ever play in the NBA…
Being openly gay in a major sport just isn’t possible, that may sound ignorant but that’s just the way shit is… when you are paid millions of dollars to play a professional sport, you are also expected to be a role model for younger athletes everywhere by slaying thousands of bitches, not dudes… its in the small writing of every contract. Out of everyone though, I’m also not shocked to hear it’s Pavano… I always knew there was something really fucking gay about him, but I just always assumed it was his fastball. Now, after decades during which gay fans had nothing in the major leagues to call their own, save for perhaps some of the mustaches, Pavano finally gives them someone to root for.
I don’t really give a shit what Pavano does with a baseball bat with his free time… as long as a player goes out there and gets the job done, they can be gayer than a fraternity’s hazing rituals
Can’t wait for all of the homo jokes to unfold this season… “hey who’s on the mound today?” … “the homo”
PS If it were possible for an entire sport to be gay, it would be soccer
PPS Pavano’s mustache used to be cool, now it’s just gay
