You think Cleveland was mad when LeBron James publicly embarrassed them with his Jim Gray ‘Decision?’ Anger is boiling over in Missouri where fans are barely a month into enjoying another World Series ring and yet Albert Pujols goes and crushes their spirit by signing today with the Angels. Of course Twitter is angry. Of course the radio talk shows are 24-7 ‘What Albert meant to this city.’ And then there is a Conoco and this message. Oh, it’s on now, Pujols.
A former news anchor, @granolove, snapped this shot of the Pierces Conoco gas station in Springfield, MO. shortly after news broke today.
For those who might not know, there is an Albert Pujols statue outside Pujols 5 Westport Grill and it was unveiled just over a month ago. Seriously.
Hence the anger from a service station that’s usually just minding its own business.
