Albert Pujols Spent His World Series Off Day at Best Buy, Eats


Other athletes might not venture out before pivotal playoff games, on the days before the opponent could clinch the series. But that's not Albert. He goes out, to Best Buy, in a sleeveless shirt that looks like it was cut from a vinyl couch cover, and purchases a DVD. And from the looks of that DVD (not a Blu-Ray!), it's the new Captain America, which came out yesterday. Albert Pujols: the greatest hitter alive AND the only man buying DVDs the day they come out at Best Buy. What a mystery. Someone should write about him.

In related news, we know what Pujols ate for dinner that night, via Esquire:

We're approaching Game 6 of the World Series, wherein the Cardinals will attempt to hold off the Rangers to make it to a Game 7. Ever wonder how St. Louis slugger Albert Pujols fuels up for such a contest? Diamond Dishes: From the Kitchens of Baseball's Biggest Stars, written by Julie Loria (wife of Marlins owner Jeff Loria), provides a behind-the-scenes look at what twenty top MLB players like to cook and eat. Turns out that the Cardinals' golden boy eats the same braised chicken dish every night before a home game. His wife Diedre has named it "Home Run Chicken," and maybe it'll bring some of that Game 3 batting magic back for Pujols tonight. If you're a Cards fan, you might want to cook the dish in solidarity. If not, it still makes a mighty fine Wednesday night dinner.

Hey, whatever Prince Albert is doing, it's working. Except for calling hit and runs. He shouldn't do that anymore.
