    I guess there's a reason why he can't speak English well ... HE'S WHITE! :eek:


    Freaky stuff below. Seriously, though, I hope the guy isn't ill.

    It's the lighting. I've seen pictures of and TV interviews of Grant Fuhr that take him from a dark brown to nearly white. It was more of a problem in the late 80s early 90s (I couldn't say from before then) when a TV camera light would burn too bright, but every once in a while it still pops up.

    Sosa looks like he is on a red carpet type of thing so he's probably just getting hit with multiple camera flashes at the same time. Generally you would hope the photo editor or whoever is in charge of the choosing the photos for the publication would choose a photo with better lighting.

    Sonia looks like Sammy just ripped a nasty one.

    He did. It was so awful it destroyed his pigmentation.

    Maybe he's on Poot Enhancing Drugs.

    Just read this on Sammy's new look. Apparently he's also now sporting green contact lenses to go with the new skin color. Very strange.
