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?
