If you ever wanted to know what swimming in a sea of Sammy Sosas felt like, I encourage you to stop by the happiest place on earth, Sammy Sosa's Pinterest account. 

Let me start by saying I still don't have a handle on this whole Pinterest thing. I don't craft, have cats or crochet. Being that I am a 30-something with a penchant for horrible movies and enjoy long walks to burrito places, you will excuse me if I get some "Pinteresting" things incorrect. 

It's not like I'm Sammy Sosa though, someone who completely missed the idea of the website, but did so in such a wonderful manner that you really need to sit back and marvel. 

At least, make "Sammy Sosa. The Official Sammy Sosa Pinterest" your own home page. 

That is but a screen shot from the website. Really, there are only so many hours in the day to appreciate something like this. 

I just wish we were granted more time, all of us, to truly savor every little point of the finger and every last self-gratifying pin placed by Sammy Sosa. 

A lot of the pictures are taken from Sosa's Flickr account, which is just as grand and filled with the mystery and wonder that is a big man wearing a whole lot of mustard-colored sweater. 

Here are a few images from a Flickr account dedicated to the many versatile poses of Suave Sammy Sosa. 

Here is the former Cubs slugger pointing, in case you were curious as to the direction of, "over there."

Here is the former Cubs slugger completely smitten with himself and e-mail. Ain't modern technology grand?

Keep this picture in your back pocket for those days that don't go so well. Take it out and get instantly transported to a reality where things are all puppy dogs and PED's. 

For me, Pinterest has always been like Imgur for people with a real passion for sewing. Far be it from me to tell you there are other things in life more precious, like Slammin' Sammy Sosa. 

The man just macraméd our day with what is a collection of poses that has me believing Sosa is running for Mayor of the Internet, and very well might win with photo jobs like these. 

Pinterest tells us they are dedicated to letting you, "organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web."

We now have a one-stop shop for such endeavors, it's at this former slugger's site. As of this writing, there is no word on whether Sosa was creating an Etsy account

Hit me up on Twitter for more pop in that culture.
