"And look Sammy, the bird flies into the pigs!"By now, you’ve surely seen the glory that is former MLB slugger Sammy Sosa’s Pinterest page, which was unveiled by Deadspin yesterday and quickly pinned on every blog and Tumblr across the Interwebs. If the year ended today and I was forced to throw together my Pulitzer-winning Biggest Sports Moments of the Year feature, there’d be little doubt that this would be No. 2 behind only this GIF of Oregon’s cheerleaders.Of course, the year doesn’t end in January, because that would mean we’d miss my birthday and that would be a dick move, Father Time. It also means that we’d miss out on the rest of whatever whirlwind public relations tour that Sosa’s handlers are creating for him, as he of course is one of baseball’s steroid era’s biggest personalities and probably in need of a little baby kissing, what with that whole Hall of Fame eligibility thing.But why, then, was his Pinterest page so hilariously awful? Why does every picture ...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
NOW THAT'S SOMETHING
It’s been a while since we checked in on our old pal Sammy Sosa. And we were thrilled to find out that he’s doing well. We were even more thrilled to find out via Deadspin that he has a Pinterest page. And it’s a Pinterest page that you should visit every single day for the rest of your life. Why? Because it has to be the best Pinterest page on Pinterest. Just has to be. [Pinterest...
Sammy Sosa has joined Pinterest (and Twitter, as well). Looking at some of the pictures that he has pinned gives you a bizarre idea into what the former Cubs legend has been up to since retiring. Here's Sammy Sosa in a Mr Rogers-esque sweater. Here's Sammy Sosa, businessman, in a suit that looks like it was plucked straight out of the 1980s. Here's Sammy...
Former Chicago Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa is just one of the many retired professional athletes that has tried to get their name back in the spotlight by joining social media. He joined Twitter (@TheRealMr609) back in October, and he has more recently taken his talents to the popular photo sharing/social network site, Pinterest.
Naturally, hearing about Sammy Sosa joining Pinterest...
Sammy Sosa has a pinterest page (and Twitter). I heard rumors about it this morning and then I saw Deadspin’s post that it has been confirmed as him.
Nothing but a wall of photos of Sosa posing in his home. There’s Sammy in a suit! There’s Sammy in a nice sweater! So carefree! So happy! And every single photo has the same caption:
“Sammy Sosa. Yes, I’m the real Sammy...
First reported by Deadspin and then picked up by the world, the great Sammy Sosa wants to let you know that he is in fact the real Sammy Sosa on Pinterest (also on Flickr).
The way Sammy is going to do that is by posting variations of the same two photos over and over again with the same caption.
“Sammy Sosa. Yes, I’m the real Sammy Sosa, and this is my Pinterest.”

Do you see random sh$% while driving to work and think it needs to be seen by the masses? Does the guy who sits next to you at work look like a tool on a daily basis?

This was the Hall of Fame ballot that all MLB players and fans were waiting on.

In a bit of an oddity, no players were selected for the Baseball Hall of Fame Wednesday, even though several of them were eligible. This year’s crop of players included Sammy Sosa, Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds. There’s no doubt that these were all excellent ball players, but all three of them were also associated with performance-enhancing drugs.
This was just the second time...
