Albert Pujols: Will His Support For Glenn Beck Hurt His Popularity?

Yes, I said support for Glenn Beck, it’s simple, if you go to an event you support it. Period.

Am I wrong?

Mr. Albert Pujols might have made the wrong choice, it is clear he had the right motive, the Hope award was given to Mr. Albert Pujols for his countless charitable work in the St. Louis community.

But why did the award had to be given in this venue?

He could of just received it in a quiet ceremony before a game or at a charitable event with no political undertones.

Can we agree on that?

Now Mr. Pujols' name and video clip showing him speaking at the Beck event are in just about every blog or political action website in the planet, all with similar headlines.

“Albert Pujols picks up award at the Glenn Beck”… Headline from -The Hill-

“Albert Pujols wows the crowd at “Restoring Honor” rally in DC”… Headline from -Gateway Pundit

“Pujols honored at Glenn Beck rally” … Headline from-Fox Sports-

Get the idea. Yes Mr.La Russa, they promised you it wouldn’t be political, what can you tell us now dear sir?

This Sunday morning someone has to ask Tony La Russa one simple question, Sir was it political?

The answer of course should be just as simple, yes or no.

Guess who Fox News Sunday had as their special guess this morning?

You got it! Glenn Beck.

Not political indeed.

I spent a few hours this morning reading comments and blogs on this subject, all opinions are right along political or racial lines, so we can say, “Mission accomplished Mr. Glenn Beck.” That’s what he is good at, dividing people (with anger) along those two lines.

Many baseball fans are disappointed and others very angry at Albert, especially in the Latino community.

I don’t expect he will get any awards from them soon.

It’s a shame Tony La Russa hoodwinked Mr. Albert Pujols into participating in an event hosted by a man who profits by playing folks against each other.

I guess it will have to be a lesson learned for Mr. Albert Pujols.

As always, this is just a fan's opinion and from what I understand, everybody has one and I thank God for that.

Enough said.
