The St. Louis Sports Weekend, in Pictures…

We know what you’re thinking. Will it be more fun listening to Mike Shannon mumble “Big Puma” or “Fat Elvis” after a few hours of frosty, cold ones?  Personally, we’re partial to “Big Puma”.  It’s a nice complement to big Phat Albert, Big Mac, and any name you could possible come up with for Dennys [...]
