Not that there's anything wrong with that

    I saw that this morning, although the story oddly glossed over the fact that it was a man.

    It may or may not be true that nothing says I am in the closet quite like a heartfelt apology and a navy range rover with tan leather.
  3. So a marginal MLB pitcher allegedly had a gay fling when he was 17 years old and his alleged lover thinks he can get a $1.2 million book advance out of that? In addition to this being a textbook case of extortion, the guy seems mentally ill.

    Kudos to the Pavano family for having the courage to go to the authorities.

    It gives new meaning to this 2006 New York Post cover.

    Wow. That headline sounds a lot like they knew something but couldn't say, doesn't it?

    Eh, the guy is just angry that Pavano was a horrible pitcher. You don't see me complaining that he destroyed several of my fantasy teams.

    I don't know about that ... the word "homosexual" is pretty prominent in the lede.

    Thank goodness.

    I thought they were after his mustache.

    Haha, I was going to post, "Must be the mustache."

    This could be the best thing that ever happened to Pavano. I wouldn't be surprised if some marginal professional athletes started coming out on their own to increase their marketing profile.

    I like that the guy (allegedly) doing the extorting has the last name of one of the few big league pitchers who is a bigger dick than Pavano. Would be awesome if they're all related somehow.

    And really, $1.2 million to tell the tale of boinking Carl Pavano? Alyssa Milano just got the jones to "write" another "book."
