For One Day In His Life Lou Piniella Was A Pot Head

lou-pinellaTotal Pro Sports – So what if Geovany Soto smoked some weed before the World Baseball ClassicLou Piniella doesn’t think it’s that big of a deal.  Heck, he even smoked some dope one time as well, and look at him now.

Piniella’s experience with smoking the chronic has helped him cope with Soto’s actions, and that’s a good thing for the Cubs catcher, who will not be disciplined by MLB or his team for the positive test.  Piniella spoke to the media prior to the Cubs game against the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field, and had the following to say:

“Look, I have smoked dope one time in my life.  And it didn’t do a damn thing for me, and I never tried it again. I’m fortunate because of that. A lot of people do. You can even buy it in California from a pharmacy.

“I do know young people make mistakes at times and learn from mistakes. I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life personally, and I’ve learned from them.” [ESPN]

Piniella never seems to disappoint when speaking to the media about his players mess-ups.  He was almost at a loss for words after Milton Bradley’s bad day at the ballpark, but this time he showed us all that everyone needs to get a little high some times.  Even Lou (maybe that’s why he’s been rather calm lately).  Now what’s the address of that pharmacy again?
