For a while there, it really sucked to be a St. Louis sports fan. The Cardinals won the 2006 World Series and then decided they'd had enough winning for the time being. Mizzou looked like a football powerhouse for a couple of hallucinatory weeks before a standard-issue Oklahumiliation restored the natural order. And the less said about the hapless Rams, the better. Now, the St. Louis Blues have improved after a miserable 2006-'07 season — so will the team keep on surging against the San Jose Sharks, possessors of the best logo in pro sports? Find out when the puck hits the fan at 7:30 p.m. at the Scottrade Center (South 14th Street and Clark Avenue). Tickets range from $15 to $135 and can be purchased at 314-241-1888 or www.ticketmaster.com.
