10 Reasons to Hate the 2010 Insight Bowl

1.) Being forced to listen to NFL announcers call a college game In the 2007 Cotton Bowl, we got to listen to Pat Summerall and Brian Baldinger mispronounce Mizzou Tigers names for two hours, and last night brought a different twist.  We got to hear Matt Millen, the architect of one of the worst stretches [...]

The St. Louis Sports Weekend, in pictures…

Names to know: Sam Bradford, Kurt Warner, James Laurinaitis, Ricky Proehl, Justin Smith, Mike Singletary, Steven Jackson, Don Brown and the Entrance to the Hill (man, that would make a tremendous trivia team name). It’s the Monday after a holiday weekend and before another holiday weekend. If you’re even at work right now, you’re likely [...]

It’s time to let go, Davis Payne [BLUES]

Dear Davis Payne, It’s time to shave off that patch of hair on the front of your head.  It’s a gotsta-go. At first, we thought it was a tattoo of a hockey puck, but we’ve recently received confirmed that it’s not. Now, we can’t decide which is more frightening: – The actual patch of follicle [...]

Braggin’ Rights Game Recap in One Photo [MIZZOU]

As we explained after the painful loss to Georgetown that Mizzou suffered in KC, we certainly could go into detail about last night’s Braggin’ Rights Game.  We could rant about how the intentional foul called with under a minute left was absolutely correct, rave about how much of a go-to guy Marcus Denmon has become [...]

Kyle Turley’s band visited by former St. Louis Rams genius

As we mentioned late last week, former Rams OT Kyle Turley was back in town this past weekend playing a concert at The Old Rock House with his aptly-named squad, The Kyle Turley Band. Now, Kyle Turley didn’t exactly leave St. Louis on the best of terms.  In fact, a relationship with one notable genius [...]

Kansas City Chiefs fans like the weed.

In its 90-year history, the NFL has never had a player named “BLUNT”.  At least, according to Pro-Football-Reference.com. But that didn’t stop one Kansas City fan from rocking the name proudly at Sunday’s Rams/Chiefs game in St. Louis. You see, “chief” is commonly used as slang for “getting high” or “smoking marijuana”.  And a “blunt” [...]

This Week in STL Sports Birthdays

As a kid, I always sort of felt sorry for those who had birthdays right around the holidays. Just seemed inherently unfair that these people are likely spending their birthdays buying presents for other people. When it comes to professional athletes, I don’t feel sorry for them. They looked in their stocking one year and [...]

The Kyle Turley Band to play in St. Louis after Rams/Chiefs game

As if things couldn’t get weirder than a bunch of mulleted Kansas City hooligans visiting our dear city on Sunday for the Rams/Chiefs game, Kyle Turley’s band is in town playing at The Old Rock House. Yes *that* Kyle Turley. The Kyle Turley that once slung a man’s helmet further than any Sam Bradford completed-pass [...]

Cardinals/Rams Contributions to Worst 100 NFL Players

If someone is ranking the 100 worst players in NFL history, you would have to assume that St. Louis would be well represented.  Between the Cardinals and the Rams, our town has been subject to some lengthy stretches of historically bad football, the most recent being the past three years.  When SI columnist Jeff Pearlman [...]

Pietrangelo has an “upper body injury”.  Oh, the horror. [BLUES]

Blues youngster Alex Pietrangelo is the latest to join his team’s growing list of invalids.   Pietrangelo is second on the team with 12 assists and leads all Blues defensemen in scoring (3G, 12A).  He’s also my second favorite “angelo”, ahead of Beverly D’Angelo, but behind Michelangelo (the Ninja Turtle, of course). What’s even more notable [...]
