Baseball Card Friday: Robert Pollard
Who is Robert Pollard?
- Is he the guy who beat up the 1st base umpire in Kansas City with his son? No.
- Is he one of those baseball math weasels who invented some jackass equation to mathematically prove that A.J. Pierzynski is a better catcher than Johnny Bench? No.
- Is he my old English teacher? Maybe.
Robert Pollard is a songwriter and the man behind the band Guided By Voices.
Here's what I know about the card. It's 3 of 10. And here's the back of the card.
If you don't know Guided by Voices, they are worth checking out. They have a greatest hits called Human Amusements at Hourly Rates.
If you want songs, check out Motor Away, A Salty Salute, Tractor Rape Chain, and Game of Pricks.
Mr. Pollard played at Wright State University and pitched a no-hitter. So I declare this weekend Robert Pollard weekend!!! Have a good one.
