Sports Bio

Cardinal baseball fan from birth. Blues hockey fan from the first puck dropped. Cardinal football until the second that Dollar Bill Bidwell moved them. I worked as an usher for 2 years in college for all of the baseball and hockey games. Even worked the old Spirit of St. Louis basketball games. Baseball season ticket holder from 1980 until 1995. I won't reward cry baby millionaires. Blues season ticket holder from 1980 until present. Too many memorable events but I must say attending all 7 games of the 1982 World Series and watching Bruce Sutter close 'em down. I don't cry over sports. I cried when Jacques Plante died. I cried when Gussie died. I will be inconsolable when Whitey goes.

Is William Shattner the new head of marketing for the Blues?

This is a great idea. Like Bo said, anything to put butts in the seats.

Kirk: Scotty!

Scotty: Aye Captain.

Kirk: Status?

Scotty: We've got no power play Captain. We can't put the bisquit in the basket sir.

Spock: Captain, it would seem logical that the law of averages would dictate that the Blues will eventually win the cup.

Kirk: If only, if only.

And as I've said for the last 40 seasons...THIS IS OUR YEAR!!

I'd like to volunteer to host the first riot. Now, does anyone know a good caterer?

Josh Howard Disrespects National Anthem

lbb, The song itself whether it be "Lift Ev'ry Voice" or "Another Saturday Night" by Sam Cook is not the point that I was making. The point is that for a song to be designated as "the black national anthem" is contrary to the doctrine of unity that Dr. King preached. Maybe I'll start playing the rap group Two Live Jews and their song, "Oy It's So Hummid" during the high holy days as my Jewish National anthem. Too many men and women of all races have died for this country's freedoms to be so devisive.

Josh Howard Disrespects National Anthem

Howard's an idiot and it's his right to prove it. The American flag, Pledge and National Anthem should be respected but that's a personal choice. Many times I stood in the crease and sang along with "Oh Canada" yet luckily I'm not Canadian. Maybe Howard would have been happier if they had played "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing" which is considered by some to be the "Black National Anthem". that's one that I won't stand up for because I find it to be a sad comentary on everything that Dr. King preached and stood for. I'm a rare conservative that believes that burning the American flag in protest is the highest form of free political speech. The 1st admendment does give us freedom of speech but it was placed in the Bill of Rights to make sure political speech was protected. Just try yelling fire in a theater or "BOMB" at airport security. To address what some one brought up about blacks not being considered a complete person in the constitution, that had very little to do with slavery itself. That's there because the slave states didn't want to give the slaves any rights but they wanted them to count as full persons for the purpose of being able to count them when it came time to assigning the number of delegates that the slave states could send to the congress. The free states wouldn't go for that so you have the partial person clause. Yup, America's a bully and to that I say...bully. I'm proud to be an American and I don't mind standing at a football game or anywhere that they choose to play it.

LPGA Tour will suspend memberships if players don't learn English

Before that it was French, before that it was Latin. In any language this is dum dum dum.

Correctamundo on all counts.

Historically the language of the international business world has been and is English. Having said that the LPGA is dead wrong here.

When is enough "enough"?

This is a sad situation that I believe that will never be resolved. It's not like you can cut her open and count the rings. Cheating has and always will be a part of the Olympics and that too is a shame. But can you imagine how He feels if indeed she truly is 16? Innocent until proven guilty is my standard. Do I trust the Chinese...hell no. I say pursue it until all viable options have been exhausted and then live with the results of the investigation. Being a sore loser is not the way to go.
