Cards Fan Announces Rally to Keep Pujols in St. Louis

​Yesterday's 20-degree weather didn't stop a shirtless, nipple-pierced Kirk Pound from promoting his "Give Us 5 for Life" rally, which he'll hold at Busch Stadium next weekend in attempt to keep Albert Pujols in a Cardinals uniform for the rest of his career. Pound is calling on all Cards fans to gather at the Stan Musial statue on Saturday, February 5, at 1 p.m. to demand that the team re-sign Pujols to a long-term contract.

"This is the first time ever that fans will get together to ask a team to sign a player before he gets to free agency," says Pound, who decided to hold the rally on February 5 in homage to Pujols's jersey number. "We want to show the Cardinals that the fans have a voice, and we're hoping both sides can come to an agreement."

The 33-year-old O'Fallon, Illinois, resident says he doesn't have a permit to hold the rally, but he's confident the city will allow it to occur since (come on!) it's for Pujols.

Pound is a corporate worker by trade, but once he punches the clock, he'll often doff his oxford shirt in exchange for his trademark spray-on wife-beater. He likens himself a superhero with a double-identity: "I walk out in a suit, and twenty minutes later I'm what you see here."

As for the frigid weather, Pound didn't seem fazed. "Rain, sleet, snow -- I'm like the post office!" he exclaims.

Channel 5 plans to air a segment on the rally this afternoon. For more info, visit
