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.

Steroids In The Hall And Beyond
