While former MLBer Sammy Sosa may have not garnered enough votes — shocking — 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.

So, why does the formally skin pigment-challenged (he appears to be doing better now on that front) 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.
UPDATE: Sadly, Sammy’s Pinterest account is no more, but we’ll always have the memories…enjoy these visual aids below.
Hey look, Sammy has Outlook. Neato.

Okay, maybe that’s not the best part. It could be that Sammy Sosa’s Pinterest account is “so reeeeeealll…”
