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.
Hey, the Cubs need to rejuvenate that offense somehow.
