The Albert Pujols Countdown returns

16 Comments

Remember the Albert Pujols Countdown?  It was a single-serving website created by Matt Sebek, counting down how long it would be until the then-Cardinals superstar was a free agent.  It pretty much lost its purpose as of last October and it was unlikely we’d ever see it again.

But it has been resurrected.  And this is just cold, ya’ll.

Sometimes I wonder if, when he returns to being amazing, Albert Pujols will spare any of us who mocked him in order to serve as living lessons to anyone who would dare doubt him.  Then I just resign myself to the notion that, no, he will kill us all.
