I know that steroids can have an adverse effect on the body, but I sure as hell didn't know that it can mess with your brain as well.
When I first heard about Sammy Sosa going all Clorox on his skin, I have to admit that I though it was a joke. -Too many leaps into the Wrigley Field Ivy. Too much time in the Dominican son- But then I saw the pictures and,well, yeah Sammy pretty much went and did his best MJ imitation.
Field, you are a hypocrite, why didn't you rip Michael Jackson? Didn't he do the very same thing? I bet you were one of the people defending him and saying that he has vitiligo. Why aren't you willing to give Sammy the benefit of the doubt? I hear that steroid use can cause vitiligo. There might be an explanation for all of this.
Sorry, that might be true, but I am not giving Sammy the benefit of the doubt. I was never a Cubs fan. And I sure as hell never liked his little coon dance as he jigged his way to smashing home run records with his partner in steroid crimes, Mark McGuire. Michael got a pass because he was, well, Michael. Sammy never moon- walked around the base path and couldn't sing two bars of Ben or Human Nature if his life depended on it. So, unlike Michael, he gets no love from the Field.
"The Chicago Tribune speaks with Rebecca Polihronis, an acquaintance of Sosa, who claims that that "he is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin."
"Rejuvenation process"? Look, if he really does have vitiligo, I am sorry and I hope he gets the treatment that he needs. But if, on the other hand, he just has a case of the I wish I was white disease, he needs to get his [used to be] black ass in the house before he starts tanning up again.
