    Anyone else tired of hearing about Pujols' injury?

    Anyone else tired of hearing about it? 90% of the Reds pregame show was about his injury. Blah. I'll agree that it is a big deal, but jeez. I don't even want to discuss ESPN and ESPNEWS. Let's talk about it, but not only about it.

    I hope this somehow jinx's Pujols into being out for 3 months.

    Re: Fat Albert...

    I agree, I hate it when the media does things like this. Yep, he's hurt, life goes on, there are games to play

    It's a pretty big deal, seeings how he is, was on track to break the HR record. He is about all the poor Cards lol have left. We can gain ground on them big time now. These 3 games, now 2 or big. A sweep pulls us even.

    Wait a second, it is starting to sound like I am the only one who is wearing his black armband (provided by George Grande)...

    Nope, not tired of hearing about it at all.

    It likely makes me a bad person, but I smile everytime I hear it.

    Im going to be honest with myself instead of being a Steeler's fan who was convinced Palmer being out wasnt to their benefit. Beating the Cards down while their main slugger is nursing a hurt oblique is exactly what we need.

    Will it make our season? No but it sure will help our mentality next time we face them.

    I don't think it can be overblown. He is "young" and clean and had a chance to erase at least part of the human *'s stain on at least the single season home run record. The other part being that it is a hard to diagnos injury means there is more to talk about. If he his leg had just fallen off or been broken they would have an idea of when he would come back but with this no one knows for sure so everyone gets to speculate.

    Yes George Bush (and Grande) have claimed a national day of mourning for Albert Pujols' strained buttocks muscle.

    But the Reds have beat the Cards with Pujols in the lineup,so no one can claim we can beat them because Pujols is out.

    I like your attitude, but I also remember someone hitting 3 longballs in one game against our beloved REDS... the last which was a 2R walkoff job.

    I hate to see a great player like Pujols hurt. But it is nothing but HELPFUL for the rest of the NL Central teams. VERY HELPFUL! No ifs, ands or buts about it.

    yes, it's outrageous that the media would cover the best player in the game being hurt.

    I am actually more tired of hearing about Clemens than Albert's injury.

    I hate hearing about it.. but I also love the fact that it gives us a chance to regain some ground in this division.
