Sammy Sosa is now a distributor for a needle-free injection system

Sammy Sosa

Via a tweet from Kyle Scott of Crossing Broad, we are led to this press release which, after I checked it out on the company’s website, appears to be legit:

FT. LAUDERDALE, Jan. 15, 2013 – Retired former Chicago Cubs sports legend and entrepreneur Sammy Sosa has purchased the distribution rights for North America and Latin America, excluding Brazil, for the needle-free injection system known as Injex21.

Mr. Sosa was introduced to the Injex system in mid-2012, when he immediately saw the potential to help millions of people around the world who are forced to take painful injections, who are afraid of injections or who subject themselves to daily self-injections. Medical workers, as well, can reduce the risk of puncture wounds.

I know nothing about this product, but if it helps anyone get needed medication easier, good for Sammy Sosa, no matter how many insanely easy punchlines it encourages.

    Punchlines are easy.

    That sweater? With that hair? That’s tough wrap your mind around.

      Not in to the Eddie Munster look?

        Sammy didn’t do PEDs….he was bitten by a vampire.

      That’s not a sweater. He is shirtless.

      The guy is like a chameleon.

    “Mr. Sosa was introduced to the Injex system in mid-2001″
    Fixed

      UPDATE: prior to the 1998 MB season.

    I’m pretty sure the “Sammy Sosa casually engaging in social media” picture is going to make me laugh for the rest of my life.

      Good for you….that picture is….well….freaking creepy.

    The return stroke apparently sucks melanin out of you.

      Possibly the funniest thing Gator has ever said!

    It should say Sammy Sosa is now an older white woman.

    If this product truly had a future, the company would have sold the distribution rights to a major consumer medical or pharma company with a signifcant distrbution network and access to several heathcare points of sale.

    What a great idea. I’m sure it makes tremendous business sense and will definitely distance Sammy from any talk of steroids. I mean painful, daily self-injections — nothing to see here folks.

  8. smoochytherhino - Jan 15, 2013 at 11:22 AM

    All I hear when I look at that photo is Sammy saying, “Oh, hello, I didn’t hear you come in…”

    • jonnybaseball - Jan 15, 2013 at 1:00 PM

      “Would you like a glass of Grappa while I describe this Pinterest article, or should we just get down to business?”

      • jonnybaseball - Jan 15, 2013 at 1:03 PM

        “I heard you read a blog post about steroids and the Hall of Fame…do tell!”

    This stuff writes itself!

  10. jcmeyer10 - Jan 15, 2013 at 12:41 PM

    Looks like a stock photo a company would use for their website or advertisement.

  11. youknowwhatsgoodforshoulderpain - Jan 15, 2013 at 12:42 PM

    Biggest marketing move since Jimmy Johnson started pushing extenze!

  12. riverace19 - Jan 15, 2013 at 12:58 PM

    Holy crap… PR disaster… kiss the Hall goodbye for good just like a Wrigley Field HR

  13. randygnyc - Jan 15, 2013 at 2:51 PM

    Caught looking- unless the founder is a close friend of sosa’s. then, if its succeful, it will indeed make him fabulously wealthy. Not pro ball wealthy, either, but REAL wealth.

  14. avietar - Jan 15, 2013 at 11:21 PM

    Yeah. Heaven forbid that steroid users should ever suffer pain when they inject their PED’s.

    Is that his real hair or did he steal it from a Ken doll?
