Big Sexy's Got Some Game

Just days after hitting his first career home run at age 42, Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon has been brought to court by a 38 year old woman claiming he is a deadbeat dad who has failed to pay child support for their children. 

Colon become an internet celebrity after blasting a home run off the Padres and taking a record-setting 31 second home run trot around the bases. Colon took over the internet and it seemed like he had the world in the palm of his hand. No one could get enough of not only the call by the Mets English commentator but also the Spanish broadcast. Big Sexy was Big Sexy and all was right in the world for Bartolo believers.

Colon's only been world famous for a couple days and he already has people nipping at his heels. Turns out Colon fathered children with Alexandra Santos during while married to his current wife Rosana, who has declined to comment on the situation. Colon had managed to keep the entire lawsuit under wraps until he appeared in court to represent himself in the custody battle. Colon is due back in court next month to settle the lawsuit regarding child support.

Who'd have thought that while Colon was eating up the limelight as the happily married Cy Young winner, he was also fathering two illegitimate 
children. On the other hand, I have a hard time believing his wife was shocked by news of the affair; I mean c'mon he is Big Sexy.

This is the first issue Colon has had with the rules since he tested positive for steroids in 2012. He won't be suspended 50 games this time around but he will certainly take a hit in the court of public opinion.
