Decoraters wait for the St. Louis Rams Super Bowl banner to lower from the rafters of the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis on January 14, 2016. Signage is being removed from the former home of the St. Louis Rams after owner Stan Kroenke announced the team will return to Los Angeles for the 2016 season and will eventually play in a new stadium. The Rams arrived in St. Louis from Los Angeles in 1995, winning the Super Bowl in 2000, but in recent years have had the lowest attendance in the NFL.  Photo by Bill Greenblatt/UPI

BACHELOR BEN-1

The Bachelor Live Blog: Episode 2

It’s been an entire week since Ben callously refused Lace Silverman eye contact during the rose ceremony, throwing The Bachelor world into chaos usually reserved for the Manitowoc County penal system. LAPD investigated, but declined to press charges against Ben at this time. Thankfully. So we’re now clear to continue on this journey of love, […]

COURTROOM

Former Cardinals Scouting Director Pleads Guilty In Hacking Scandal

New year; same off-season. The Cardinals lost Jason Heyward and John Lackey in free agency to the Cubs (who also singed super-utility dude Ben Zobrist). They went hard at David Price only to see him sign with Boston. Yadier Molina and Randal Grichuk are still in recovery from their respective – and unexpected – surgeries. […]

ROSENTHAL DOG

Trevor Rosenthal Will Be Grand Marshal Of Soulard Pet Parade

Trevor Rosenthal will serve as the Grand Marshal for the 2016 STL Mardi Gras Pet Parade. I didn’t read the headline right and thought that Trevor was the Grand Marshal for the regular Mardi Gras parade, so I made this great joke about how it was ironic he was the choice since this was the […]

KROENKE

We’re Better Off Without Stan Kroenke Being In St. Louis

2010 was a ‘better’ time for professional football fans in St. Louis. Ascribing the word ‘better’ to a franchise that had just wrapped a 3 season stretch by posting a 6-42 record seems like a horrible choice of descriptor. And you’re right – it is. But compared to this? At least we could watch those beatdowns […]

Dan Haren’s Twitter Tell-All Includes Hotdogging Home Run Off Chris Carpenter

Dan Haren was on fire today. The former Cardinals 2nd round pick (2001 | RD 2 | 72nd overall) recently retired and decided it was time to speak on some truth via Twitter. A smattering: But the Tweet that Cardinals Nation raised an eyebrow at was this: Let’s go to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuAHpLUmkII&feature=youtu.be&t=1h49m32s Upon further […]

VIDEO BOARDS BUSCH

Busch Stadium Updating Video Boards For 2016

Busch Stadium is getting new video boards. Hard to believe, but HDTV hasn’t been the standard for broadcasting all that long. For some perspective: as best I can tell, FOX didn’t start airing the NFL in HD until 2006. Busch III was opened in 2006. It was probably time for an upgrade. In the past […]
