    Sports Blogger Asks: Which is Worse -- Blackhawks or Ex-Girlfriend Porn Star?

    Edit note: Um, yeah. Ladies and gentlemen, these are dark days we're living in. Dark, awful, apocalyptically dark and awful days. Did I mention the dark part? What about the awful part? I'm pretty sure I did. The Chicago Blackhawks are Stanley Cup champions. Again. Okay, deep breaths. Easy, now ... More >>

    "I Bitched About It a Lot on Twitter" and Other NHL Lockout Coping Strategies of Blues Fans

    The most recent NHL lockout became a memory on Saturday as the Blues blanked the Detroit Red Wings 6-0 at the Scottrade Center. While covering the first of this 48-game season, photographer Jon Gitchoff asked these fans how they spent the lockout. Here are their responses, which include crying, curs ... More >>

    What to Like in Shortened Blues Hockey Season

    The powers that be in the National Hockey League finally got together, pulled their collective heads from their collective asses, and got a new collective bargaining agreement hammered out. (You like the repeated use of collective there? That's the kind of topnotch journalism you pay for with the RF ... More >>

    Paul McCartney at the Scottrade Center, 11/11/12: Review, Photos and Setlist

    70-year-old Paul McCartney tripped and fell face-first from his piano riser onto the stage at the Scottrade Center. It was halfway through the 35th song of a three hour set. He sprang back up, struck a pose like a cartoon thief caught in a spotlight, strapped on his guitar and started trading solos ... More >>

    The Blues' Sprint to the Finish Line

    The NHL season is coming to a close, and the St. Louis Blues -- excuse me, that should be Your First Place St. Louis Blues -- are getting ready for their final push to the finish line. ​There's plenty on the line for the Blues, who currently sit atop both the Western Conference and the NHL as ...

    Everything's Coming Up Blues

    Well, almost everything, anyway. If Winnipeg didn't suck so much it would have been everything. The Blues won again last night, slowly choking the life from the Anaheim Ducks over 60 minutes of grind en route to a 3-1 victory. Jaroslav Halak was nothing short of brilliant, saving 24 of 25 goals ... More >>

    Blues and Canucks: Headed for a Showdown

    The road doesn't get any easier for the Blues. In fact, it's just about to get real. Tonight the Blues travel to Vancouver to play the Western Conference-leading Canucks, the Blues' fifth game in seven days. The Canucks are skilled, they can score, and they have Roberto Luongo. In other words, ... More >>

    Blues Get Back on Track; Finally Beat Predators

    ​So far this season it had been all Nashville, all the time when the Blues and Predators get together. Nashville's defense, at times capable of being as smothering as the Blues' own, had kept the St. Louis attack under control, and Pekka F. Rinne keeps doing this really spot-on but incredibly ...

    Blues Dominate, Halak Shuts Out Oilers

    ​I don't think Jaroslav Halak was all that thrilled with the Blues extending Brian Elliott. In fact, I think his pure unbridled rage at finding out he was going to have to be sharing his net with that Canadian upstart for the next two years was enough to make him see red. Or blue, as the case may ... More >>

    The Return of The Halak-Ness Monster

    ​You know, awhile back I wrote a column about some win by the Blues or other, and I made a rather off the cuff remark about Jaroslav Halak. He's been a lot better since Ken Hitchcock got to town, I said, but the guy the Blues thought they were trading for just isn't going to show up. Halak isn't t ... More >>

(Speaking of, the intricacies of NHL scheduling continue to evade me. A lobotomized monkey with a dartboard  could do a better ... More >>

    Blues Close Out Homestand On a High Note

    Rangers, yes, but not necessarily from New York. Blues probably could have beaten these guys too, though.

    ​The Blues under new coach Ken Hitchcock have been nigh unstoppable, winning four games in a row, going 8-1-2 in his first 11 games at the helm, and picking up 18 of a possible 22 points over that time span. Suffice to say, things are looking pretty rosy around the Blues' clubhouse right now.  ... More >>

    The Blues Find Themselves on the Outside Looking In -- Again

    That's exactly what I was afraid of. Last night, the Blues ran into the Chicago Blackhawks, who have been one of the top teams in the league for most of the year. They were an absolute buzzsaw in December, and though they haven't been able to maintain that torrid pace in 2009, the 'Hawks are still t ... More >>
