Local Legend Poses With Albert Pujols Statue

Last month Daily RFT broke the news about a gigantic bronze statue of Albert Pujols in the works for Westport Plaza. Sadly, we couldn't make yesterday's unveiling of that sculpture, but fear not. A greater St. Louis legend than Pujols was in attendance yesterday and forwarded along the following pic.

Hey big guy, (God, Beatle Bob, bronzed Albert Pujols) thanks for the memory.
That's right! We're talking about Beatle Bob (a.k.a. Robert Matonis)!

St. Louis' concert-going legend writes that he was doing a radio interview yesterday at nearby KTRS (550 AM) and couldn't help but to stop by the statue and get a photo.

Speaking of which, famed St. Louis sculptor Harry Weber has now unveiled statues this year of Chuck Berry and Albert Pujols. When does Beatle Bob get his due?

Beatle Bob is a piece of turd and every one knows it!!! How can you call him a legend?  He's just some old dude who can't dance for shit but won't stop.  He wouldn't even have a dance-off with my friend!!!

Sculptor Harry Weber must never meet or even look at his subjects.  The faces of the Pujols or Berry statues don't even remotely resemble either of these two men.  In fact you could switch the heads on the statues and it wouldn't make any difference in their appearance.

Please stop validating Bob's ego with pieces like this. Everyone I know hates him. Enough already.

Beetle Bob is St. Louis's equivalent of Ratzo Rizzo from Midnight Cowboy

Gretel McAlbertson: Why are you stealing food? Ratso Rizzo: I was just, uh, noticing that you're out of salami. I think you oughtta have somebody go over to the delicatessen, you know, bring some more back. Gretel McAlbertson: Gee, well, you know, it's free. You don't have to steal it. Ratso Rizzo: Well, if it's free, then I ain't stealin'.

If the statue was portable, Beatle Bob would have already stolen it.

i hope the statue is portable because Albert will need to take it with him when he leaves for another baseball team.  No way he is staying now....LaRussa gone, the rest of the coaching staff will undoubtedly be given their walking papers when the new skipper joins.  besides, Albert is looking for the BIG payday that STL cannot and should not pay him!

Why should Stl rely on the cardinals to give it history? We have won 11 world championships and still nobody cares outside of Stl. Time to stop wasting money.
