ACCORDING TO MLB.COM, IT'S PRONOUNCED 'POO-HOLES'

Albert Pujols has earned many distinctions during his first few years in baseball. Some experts even predict he'll win the National League MVP this season, only his third in the Majors. But nothing compares to the honor bestowed the Dominican native on his MLB.com player page. It's not about home runs or strikeouts. No, this is about the man behind the stats. The man whose last name is correctly pronounced "POO-holes."

"A lot of people aren't quite sure how to say 'Pujols' as it can get kind of tricky with that 'J' in there," explained Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa. "Clearly, it's time this talented athlete receive his due. Or doo, if you please."

For those not familiar with the terms poo and holes, the former is slang for feces while the latter refers to openings or cavities. Connected by a hyphen, poo-holes refers to anuses. Or asses. You know, shitters.

"Being compared to a gap that spits out human waste? It's definitely an honor," said Pujols with a happy smile. "When you think of poo and the hole it comes out of, think of me."

Cubs fans agree.

"We've always thought of Pujols as a real piece of shit," said Marty Lunt, lifelong bleacher regular. "This is just the next logical step. He will forever be synonymous with feces and feces-producing tubes."

"I used to joke around, calling him 'Cornholes,'" said Mike Philips, another Cubs fan. "It looks like MLB.com has one-upped me."



Damn, I love Cubs and Cards Weekends.....Go Cubs!
