Chicago Cubs blogger Bullpen Brian says he’s surprised at the attention he’s received this week over a photo taken of him during baseball’s GM meetings at the O’Hare Hilton.
The recent photos revealed Brian’s skin color, particularly the face, much paler than his normal caramel tone. His physical resemblance to that of a Silverback Gorilla didn’t go unnoticed, either.
Speculation first arose from Cubs Nation that Brian completed several cycles of performance enhancing drugs this past summer, thus explaining his abnormally large muscle mass.
Additionally, his affection for bananas and walking on all fours has also fueled the debate.
