Last night, ESPN Chicago’s Jon Greenberg drew some attention to Sammy Sosa’s Pinterest account. And it was well-deserved attention – but we’re here to tell you that those Pinterest photos came from Sosa’s Flickr, and that you need to visit this Flickr page.
With Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, And Roger Clemens On The HOF Ballot, Cooperstown And The Steroids Era Are Headed Towards Inevitable Clash
With alleged (and proved) steroid users like Mark McGwire and Rafael Palmeiro having been on the National Baseball Hall of Fame ballot for a few years now, the storm between baseball writers and the Steroid Era has been brewing considerably.

Some of them (like Tony Parker’s) are not always the fault of the athlete’s. But sometimes, athletes get injured in the downright dumbest, and funniest ways.
Note: Many professional athletes were hurt physically and emotionally in the making of this slideshow.
