Albert Pujols Celebrity Golf Classic 2009

By Matthew Leach / MLB.com ST. LOUIS — On a lovely, surprisingly mild late-summer day, nearly every Cardinals player gave up his off-day to trek out approximately 40 miles from downtown St. Louis. Of course, there was golf awaiting them when they got there, but even so, it was telling. The annual Albert Pujols Celebrity Golf Classic took place on Monday at the Country Club at St. Alban’s, west of St. Louis. And it was hard to find a Cardinals…

O’ Night Divine 2009

by Anna M. Jones Karen Cunningham’s only goal was to grab her Kleenex and speech and get off the stage as quickly as she could at the Pujols Family Foundation’s annual O’ Night Divine dinner. Then she realized Al ‘the Mad Hungarian’ Hrabosky was standing, and it hit her. “When I saw him stand up, I was blown away,” she said. “For him of all people, then I realized everyone was standing up.” And applauding. Amid a sea of professional…

This trip was dedicated to the evaluation of existing projects, and to evaluate medical sites for our big multi-dimensional medical mission in late August/early September. What was meant to be a…

Which is why I go, because I have a job, and I try to do that as efficiently as possible. But when you are so focused on working, vision can become narrowed. To really be able to…
