:) Sammy Sosa robbed at hotel


February 8, 2002 Chicago Cubs star Sammy Sosa was robbed of $20,000 at a Venezuelan hotel.


Sosa told authorities he and his brother had left the money on a desk in a Cracas hotel lobby. The brothers apparently forgot the bag when they left to eat at a hotel restaurant. By the time they went back to get the cash it was gone.
Sosa reportedly asked hotel management to review security tapes but personnel told him the cameras weren't working.

The robbery occurred after Sosa attended a Caribbean series baseball game.

That's histarical!!! What was that idiot doing with $20,000 on him anyway. He deserves it. It just goes to show when you flaunt your money, you get what you deserve! He should stay where he belongs in the Dominican Republic and stop polluting our city with his arrogant blowing of kisses into the camera.

:whiner: SAMMY SUCKS!!!

Because it happened in our Magglio's country, here's what I think happened, but we'll keep it from the legal systems.

:shammy
I can't seem to find my money!!!

:maggs
[under his breath] I know what happened to it, hehehehe! All I can say is that I'm $20,000 richer!

How many people (millionaire or otherwise) do you know walk around with $20,000 in cash and plan anything legitmate? If you ask me, Shammy got ripped off in the middle of something illegal and underhanded. You'll never hear that from the Chicago media.

Who's being paranoid here? Sure, 20K is pretty extravagant, especially in a country like Venezuela, but I'm sure Sham-ME was handing out tips left and right to keep up his wonderful public image. Plus, if he was at a gambling establishment, 20K is completely normal for a big spender to blow through.
