Sammy Sosa’s Pinterest Page is Exactly What You’d Expect Sammy Sosa’s Pinterest Page to Be

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 Sosa, and this is my Pinterest.”

“Sammy Sosa. Yes, I’m the real Sammy Sosa, and this is my Pinterest.”

“Sammy Sosa. Yes, I’m the real Sammy Sosa, and this is my Pinterest.”

Everybody is very entertained by it as the overt attempts at getting back into the good graces of the public and media could not be more blatant than if he walked around outside Wrigley on Opening Day wearing a sandwich board that said, “Sammy Sosa. Yes, I’m the real Sammy Sosa, and I’d REALLY like to be in the Hall of Fame, buddy.”

But when you stop and think about Sammy’s career and his constant self-promotion, isn’t this just the Sammy Sosa-est thing that ever Sammy Sosa-ed? Is anyone actually shocked at how over the top this is?

In 1998 as Mark McGwire started getting all pissy with all the constant media attention, there was Sammy Sosa ready to jump in front of the cameras as McGwire’s comrade. When McGwire hit his record-breaking HR, who was there to give him hugs and exchange the McGwire-patented forearm and stomach “punch”? Sammy Sosa. 

He trotted out the Flinstones vitamins line constantly when the occasional reporter would ask about performance enhancers and it would show up in all the papers the next day.

After 9/11, Sammy hit a homerun in the Cubs first game back after the attacks and all of a sudden he had a little American flag in his hands as he rounded the bases. Somehow, he managed to turn a nation mourning terrorist attacks into the Sammy Sosa Show. And we loved it.

It seemed there was nothing the man wouldn’t do to make sure the cameras were on him.

So while his Pinterest page is hilarious, he has managed to accomplish what just a couple of days ago seemed damn near impossible. We’re all talking about Sammy Sosa again.

So that sandwich board on Opening Day suddenly seems plausible. Maybe he’ll skydive in a Cubs uniform from a blimp that has a giant picture of his own face on it. Maybe he’ll somehow donate profits from his investments in a needle-free injection company to the Ricketts so that they can open the Sammy Sosa Triangle Building.

When you are talking about Sammy Sosa, there really is nothing you can say that would be considered too outlandish.
