Just to lef everyone know, I am not really Albert Pujols. I got this email from a sailor who is obviously trying to contact Albert Pujols (the baseball player). He probably found my email in my MacNN member profile when searching for Albert Pujols.

Here is the email:

I am an active duty american military member stationed overseas. We are
huge fans of Mr. Albert Pujols. We are having a problem with the morale
here at the command, and trying anything we can to raise it. Currently we
are writing to actors and actresses, athletes, musicians, and comedians
throughout the world to try to get some kind of rare item to auction off
here to our troops. That way they would be able to acquire something that
they couldn't just go out and buy but have something that they could
treasure forever. It also would remind them that people haven't forgot
about them. Also in the money we raise it would help us to make needed
improvements and buy new items to raise the spirits of everyone stationed
here. I don't know what you can do if anything, but I needed some place to
start, and I really want to help make a difference here before I leave next
year. The new sailors are already bummed because there isn't much to do
around here, and our command doesn't have alot for people to do either. In
the coming years if we can raise enough money my goal is to get a weight
room, game room and possibly a christmas party to celebrate with everyone
here. Every 6 days we spend the night for 24-36 hours sometimes longer, and
at times when we are waiting for something to happen there is nothing for
these sailors to do. If we make an intent to improve the quality of life
here, these new sailors can have an idea of a new way of life in the years
to come, and you could help be a part. If there is anything you can do
either please email me or send me a letter.

Sadly, I am not Albert, but I was able to send the guy Albert's real address.

Wow. I haven't received any "Rickey Henderson" e-mails; however, he's not popular. My inbox gets flooded with "gorickey" requests though.

You said "Poo Holes" Ha ha.

Albert, when are you going to get out of this mini-slump? It's time for your bat to come alive. Just because you have a 12 game lead over the cubbies doesn't mean you can take it easy.

Go Cards!

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

FYI: For the record, I'm not Albert Pujols either.

That said, is it just me, or does his sig look like goal_bert and not go_albert.

If I was mistaken for my favorite celebrity, I would take advantage of it, especially if I got a lot of money for it.
