BREAKING: Geovany Soto And The Stickiest Of The Ickiest

Puerto Rico v Tampa Bay Rays

For all the basketball eyes that we've grabbed today, here is a story that might take you back to the days of the Portland Trail Blazers of not too long ago.

Someone cue the Damon Stoudamire flashback:

Cubs catcher Geovany Soto tested positive for marijuana use while playing for Puerto Rico during the World Baseball Classic last March, the International Baseball Federation announced Thursday.

Soto released a statement saying he was "embarrassed by my lapse in judgment."

"While I full acknowledge my inappropriate behavior, I want to assure my fans and my family that this was an isolated incident," he said.

So to recap our non-basketball related stories:
  • Multi-millionaire athletes are often spotted with attractive, provocatively dressed women.
  • They also like to smoke up.
Let's be real Geo, you've made worse decisions in your life. Like swinging at face-high fastballs and 55-foot breaking balls. Maybe you should consult Dr. Snoop in filling your next prescription.

Hey, the Cubs need to rejuvenate that offense somehow.
