    You’re telling me that Mr. Spooneybarger is not the most ridiculous name? Coco Crisp is a nickname though, right?

    Pujols makes me laugh with the delight of an 8 year old child. Coco Crisp’s given name is Covelli, BUT he is announced as Coco Crisp… his stats are in Coco Crisp…he is reported on as Coco Crisp — no one calls him by his real first name.

    Least you could do was give us the freakin ability to view it. PSAH!

    You haven’t seen high comedy until you’ve seen a group of little league players giggling their heads off after one of them says Pujols while emphasizing both syllables. Albert wins hands down – this poll is merely a contest for second place.

    Sorry Martin, it won’t give me code to post results. But no way…after 9 votes, Spooneybarger is winning with 4…Pujols is behind him with 3 and Coco Crisp has got 2.

    I am with Travis. I think Pujols is the absolute funniest name I think I have ever heard. And that is just how I had to say it in order for someone to “get it” — with specific emphasis on both syllables, as if I were Britney Spears. Say it with me…Pooh Holes.

    OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHhh, can I change my vote then? Shit, I didn’t know his background so didn’t know he did the j=h thingy.


    ouch, it hurts.

    I posted this on Bug’s page… but looky here at his player profile and the phonetic pronounciation. Someone at ESPN is laughing deviously.

    Oh, HA! That ain’t right. It just ain’t right…

    UPDATE: Pujols has pulled ahead, leading Spooneybarger 5 to 4.

    *perhaps this has to do with the realization that his name is referencing a balloon knot.

    I always got a kick out of Milton Bradley…guess I’m in the minority on that one.

    Ha! Coco, it’s a’ight. I totally loved you when I was a kid! But now you’re too sweet for me and I can’t take it. I need a bad boy cereal…er…baseball player.
