Luckily for us, Adams' loss is our gain as the 32-year-old defensive lineman is spending some of his down time creating a hilarious mockup of Sammy Sosa's infamous Pinterest page. Adams' own Pinterest page features a wealth of Slammin' Sammy impersonations and attracted quite a bit of attention around the Internet this week.
Question is, where did he find that sweater?
"Would you believe I already had it in my closet? It was one of those three for $20 deals at Foot Locker. I already had a grey and a black one, so I thought, why not go out on a limb?" Adams told NBC 5.
Hey, as a nation of slovenly sportswriters can tell you, sporting mustard on your shirt never goes out of style. Sosa just happens to be bringing it back to the forefront on Pinterest.
If Sosa or his social media team took any offense to Adams' antics, they didn't show it in their response to Adams. Indeed, it was nothing but heart taps and blown kisses from "The Real Mr. 609":
@spiceadams i love your sense of humor! great pinterest page!
