According to occasionally reputable MediaTakeOut.com, the former slugger's skin has died.
Sammy Sosa stepped out yesterday in NYC. His face was looking CRAZY. After a year of bleaching his skin has virtually DIED...now he has an ASHEN GRAY appearance...sort of like a CORPSE!!!
And while I'd like to believe that Sosa is the undead (or even a vampire!)...it's probably not the case.
In November 2009, when the 1998 National League MVP stepped out with noticeably lighter skin, it was (alledgedly) due to "skin rejuvination" treatments and, of course, poor lighting.
"He is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin. Women have it all of the time," Sosa friend Rebecca Polihronis told the New York Post in 2009. "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. The picture is deceiving."
But here we are, more than two years later and he's looking worse...not better. Oh, and his hands are ashy too.
Shouldn't "skin rejuvenation" on his face (which has also been reported) NOT affect his hands? Yuck.
