Sammy Sosa wasn't joking when he said he might endorse the skin lightening product that caused a minor Internet meltdown last week.

"If he feels it is of good quality, it may be something he will be endorsing and marketing in the United States in the near future," said Rebecca Polihronis, the former Cubs community relations employee, who spoke on behalf of Sosa to the Tribune.

But Sosa's not ready to release the name of the product, yet.

The Casper-like slugger picked the cream up in Europe in a bid to soften his sun-damaged skin.

Polihronis said that, so far, Sosa's happy with the product, but she's not certain how he found it.

"If he decides to bring (the product) over, he will let everybody know exactly what it is and how people can get it."

No word on whether Sosa, who turns 41 Thursday, will also decide to endorse strong camera flashes.
