Albert Pujols has become a U.S. Citizen and he apparently prepared for the test like it was a World Series Game:
The St. Louis Cardinals’ star became a U.S. citizen Wednesday during a ceremony at the Eagleton Courthouse. Pujols’ wife, Deidre, arranged to have about two dozen relatives and friends watch U.S. District Judge E. Richard Webber swear in Pujols.
Chester Moyer, the officer in charge of the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Service office in St. Louis, said Thursday that Deidre Pujols served as her husband’s tutor. Moyer said the 27-year-old Pujols spent about a year preparing for the citizenship exam.
“He even answered a bunch of additional questions and gave us more answers than we asked,” Moyer said. “He clenched his fist and said, ‘I got 100 percent!’
“He just had a grin from ear to ear,” Moyer said. “He was thrilled to become a citizen.”
Its no surprise given to competitive nature of many athletes, but it is always nice to see a story of who really values becoming a citizen and takes it seriously.
