If only an entire city could yell at me for 6 months I would finally drop some lbs. Pablo looks great and this isn’t just good for his possible production next season. This is good for Pablo. Boston sports fans are brutal and we will admit here at Off the Monster that we were one of the worst offenders. Shaming him throughout spring training last year was a daily routine for most sports writers in Boston. Pablo was under attack and there was nowhere to hide. It all came to culmination when he hurt himself sleeping (ultimate fat guy injury) and was forced to watch from the dugout for the entirety of the 2016 season.
We needed to fat shame Pablo otherwise he would’ve died a slow death of fast food and grease along with millions of other Americans. Fortunately, Pablo was put in Boston where he was destroyed for his fatness and we ended up probably saving his life. Does that make the city of Boston heroes? Yeah it does.
Imagine if Pablo stayed in San Francisco or god forbid went to Toronto. There’s no way those Canadians would have been able to properly roast Sandoval for the pig that he had become.
Headlines in Toronto after Sandoval spring training debut:
“Pablo Sandoval Looks A Bit Heavy But Hey Who Are We To Say (Sorry)”
“Pablo Sandoval’s A Bit Overweight Eh, No Worries He’s Probably Just Getting Used To Maple Syrup”
Fat shaming is a necessary part of our culture. Whenever someone tells me “your not that fat” or “don’t say that about yourself” they’re killing me with their politeness. Fat guys need to be told their fat and they need to be helped. Just look what it did for Pablo Sandoval.
If you have the time feel free to tell me what a fatty I am. @boobymcnasty
