Apparently, it appears that it will be Albert Pujols news, all day, all night. According to a report from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, a security guard is presently stationed nearby the Albert Pujols statue. The statue, which was just unveiled in early November and is located in West Port Plaza near Albert Pujols’ restaurant, Pujols 5. Yeah, I’m sure business will be booming in that joint in the coming weeks and months.
Still, who felt it was necessary to post a security guard by the statue? What did they expect St. Louis residents to do? Arm themselves with pitchforks and torches, form an unruly mob and storm down to Pujols’ statue and tear it down, like what happened to Saddam Hussein’s statue? Further, what is Paul Blart, Plaza Cop going to do about it? Nevertheless, if such an ugly scene did in fact occur, I have a good idea who would be the leader of said mob.
