Like you, I’m sick of professional athletes using social media to promote products, rant about officials, and generally make complete asses of themselves. And like me, former MLB slugger Sammy Sosa’s Pinterest page should fill your heart with joy.
It’s…it’s just so elegant. And classy. Simple in it’ execution, but spectacular in its presentation. He may have fallen short of the Hall of Fame vote yesterday, but man can Slammin’ Sammy run a Pinterest page.
We’re nearly sure that it’s legit. And not just because it says “Sammy Sosa. Yes I’m the real Sammy Sosa, and this is my Pinterest” on every picture. No, seriously. That’s the caption on every picture pinned to his board.
Sosa tweeted out his Pinterest page, once again reassuring us that it’s real. The Twitter account isn’t verified by Twitter, but the Chicago Tribune did confirm it as legit. Redeye Chicago has confirmed it. So we’re over 99% sure that this Pinterest account is real.
Sammy Sosa. Yes, I’m the real Sammy Sosa, and this is my Pinterest. http://t.co/ylJcIMZP
Sosa has currently pinned 14 items to his board, 13 of which are photo of Sammy Sosa. Sosa looking sharp in a suit, Sosa looking double-sharp in a yellow sweater. Sosa flashing the peace sign, Sosa playing with his smartphone. Sosa gesturing the the picture of him and Obama on the wall. Incredible.
