Previously pigment-challenged train wreck (he seems to be doing better now on that front) and former MLBer Sammy Sosa may have not garnered enough votes that would have led to his induction into the Hall of Fame, but even before he heard the disappointing news, he was already laying the groundwork for bigger and better things. Or something. You see, Sosa has been hard at work building up his Pinterest account, and for doing so, we should all thank him. Because it’s fan-freaking-tastic. For the uninitiated — I assume that is most of you, as I figure that the typical SoB reader isn’t a bored housewife or middle-aged woman or both — Pinterest, as defined by Wikipedia, is “a pinboard-style photo sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as events, interests, hobbies, and more.” So, why is Sammy Sosa have a Pinterest account? Good question. Better question: Why has Sammy Sosa pinned hilarious photos all over his Pinterest page of himself dressed up and for some reason. And perhaps for reasons only known by that peculiar brain of his, why is he in many of the photos awkwardly pointing at various things? Who knows? But it’s a real treat. Down the mysterious — and sublimely delightful — rabbit hole we go. Hey look, Sammy has Outlook. Neato. No matter how you slice it, this is all sorts of fantastic. Perhaps the best part of it all is that every photo is tagged “Sammy Sosa. Yes, I’m the real Sammy Sosa, and this is my Pinterest.” What the? Okay, maybe that’s not the best part. It could be that Sammy Sosa’s Pinterest account is “so reeeeeealll…” [images via Pinterest, H/T SB Nation] TweetThe post For some reason, Sammy Sosa has a Pinterest account, and it is sublime (photos) appeared first on Sportress of Blogitude.
