Cleveland Indians center fielder Grady Sizemore has been all over the internet recently and not in a way the Indians, or Major League Baseball, would prefer.
The incident forced the Indians to release this statement this morning:
“We fully support Grady as he deals with this personal matter. The posted photos were stolen from his girlfriend's email account and a legal investigation is underway."
Personally, i don't know if "stolen" is the right word for this situation. I am reminded of The Office episode where Michael Scott tries to send topless photos of Jan Levinson-Gould to his good buddy, Todd Packer, and sends the photos, in mass e-mail, to packaging instead.
Who really knows what happened when Sizemore -- doing his best Austin Powers impersonation with a well-placed tea cup -- tried to send the racy photos to Playmate girlfriend Brittany Binger, but does it even matter?
Sizemore will try to pursue A "legal investigation," but that sounds like a public relations statement to paint him as a victim of circumstance. Besides, if it is a hacked e-mail (like they are saying it is) that leaves billions of suspects.
The bottom line is if you take these types of photos of yourself, whether a celebrity or not, there is a high probability the photos will end up on the internet for all to see.
Sizemore needs to look in the mirror, without a camera and a teacup, to find the real person at fault here.
