Do you remember that one time Bartolo Colon went missing during his second time around with the White Sox? Yeah, you read that right. All 285 of his big sexy ass went missing and no one knew where hell he was.
In June of 2009, Bartolo was expected to make a rehab start for Triple-A Charlotte after taking some time off in Arizona to nurse his sore knee. Two days prior to that expected start, Colon was nowhere to be found and hadn’t contacted anyone. Not his agent, not Kenny Williams, not Ozzie Guillen. Nobody.
Another huge event that occured in June of 2009 was the exact reason ‘big sexy’ went missing.
“I worry about Colon because Colon was a big-time Michael Jackson fan,” Guillen told reporters in an ESPN interview. “He might [watch] the TV and cry all day long. Maybe he is in L.A. at his funeral, because I can’t find him… Nobody knows how big of a Jackson fan Colon was. I’m serious. He might be depressed a little bit.”
So Bartolo Colon is such a big Michael Jackson fan that he turned off all ways of contact and took a couple days off from life to mourn his loss.
Could you just image the Bartolo Colon that we all know and love moonwalking around?
