Let’s cut the crap and get down to brass facts here on a warm Sunday from the Southern tip of St. Louis city. I am a live wire and need to unload a few rounds so the head can be reset to neutral. Let’s just call this a Cards heavy blog.
- The Boston Massacre is horrible and tragic. As a parent and runner, seeing an 8 year old boy run up to his dad to congratulate him on finishing a 26 mile race in the biggest marathon of the year only to be killed in an explosion is absolutely horrifying. Bad men are all over and terrorism is a beast with many heads. 9/11 taught us that the hard way. In my mind, the security points prevented a bigger tragedy but still 3 dead and 154 hurt is a bad day for the city and a big day for runners and family. It makes me sit back and think what I will tell Vinny when he starts to ask questions. I will tell him this. The world is full of bad men but is my belief that more good people exist than bad so the fight is ours to take. Hearing about it is one thing and seeing pictures, videos and stories just lays its hooks into me. I do hope the media coverage starts to lighten up.
- The Place Beyond The Pines is the best film I have seen this year. Powerful tale of fathers and sons.
- The Blues need, need, need to win the final majority of games at home. They sit in 7th place before tonight’s game. Scoring a few goals would help an improved defense and goaltending situation. The acquisition of Jay Bouumeester and Jordan Leopold has made the defensive structure in front of the net prevent excessive rebounds. Now the boys need to score. The 6 game winning streak was nice but its over and now we have a 2 game losing streak. One more thing. PLAY RYAN REAVES!
