sammy-sosa1Recently in Las Vegas, former home run darling Sammy Sosa made quite a startling appearance, looking almost ghoulish under the harsh paparazzi lights.

He’s not trying to be Michael Jackson,” said former Cubs employee Rebecca Polihronis, who talks frequently with Sosa. “He is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin,” Polihronis said. “Women have it all of the time. He was surprised he came out looking so white. I thought it was a body double. Part of (the photo appearance) is just the lighting. “He is in the middle of doing a cleansing process to his skin. The picture is deceiving. He said, ‘If you saw me in person, you would be surprised. When you see me in person, it is not going to seem like the picture.’ People who saw him in person did not react the same way.

I just hope he doesn’t get too sad by this — but if he does, at least he has some soft pillows to cry on…
