But St. Louis will have a presence during the Super Bowl XLIV festivities: Chef Bill Cardwell of Cardwell's at the Plaza and BC's K ... More >>
This weekend's NFC Championship game features the Minnesota Vikings facing off against the New Orleans Saints. The former's performance was so inspiring in recent weeks, it inspired Mpls legend Prince, who penned a song in their honor called "Purple and Gold." The Fox affiliate in Minneapolis receiv ...

Okay, Rams fans, now you should be excited. Two weeks ago, after the Rams beat the Detroit Lions for their first victory in over a year, I played the role of buzzkill, trying to explain why it wasn't all that encouraging the Rams won. Sure, it was nice to finally erase that big ugly zero fro ... More >>
Remain non-broke all the way through Monday with the following suggestions for having fun on a budget this weekend. Looking for live music? We have that for you too, with our weekend concert calendar. It's also one of the best weekends all year long to see a movie in St. Louis.Everything is Terri ... More >>
www.ww2poster.co.ukIt finally happened: The 2009 St. Louis Rams ran into a team worse than them. It wasn't pretty (only this team could turn an interception into a safety) but the Rams finally came through when it counted. Steven Jackson finally broke the touchdown jinx that hounded him all seaso ... More >>
See, it's both a snarky way of making fun of the Rams' ineptitude and a way to remind us of better days. Nice, huh? Well, hopefully this (and by this, of course, I mean the unceremonious 28-0 ass kicking we all witnessed yesterday), will put to an end all that hopeful speculation people come up w ... More >>
You know, I'm not normally real big on preseason football. Unlike spring training in baseball, it's hard to really follow the position battles and the like in football. Guys get shifted around so much even during the season that where a particular guy is playing in a particular game really tells you ... More >>
You know, if you had told me just a couple of years ago that signing Ron Bartell was going to be of paramount importance for the Rams to have any chance of being competitive, I probably would have laughed in your face.
The most important bit of news over the weekend was the big deal that took place in the NFL, when the Kansas City Chiefs acquired quarterback Matt Cassel and linebacker Mike Vrabel from the New England Patriots for a second-round pick.Now, that's pretty newsworthy just by itself, of course; Cassel w ...

Well, the Rams' 2008 campaign has finally, mercifully, come to an end. And you know what's just a little bit sad about that fact? They actually started to look a little bit like a real team there toward the end. Yes, they lost to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday afternoon. But guess what? The ... More >>
Have you heard the news? According to Bryan Burwell's sappy tear-jerker in the Post-Dispatch this morning, 57 of the 61 players on the Rams roster have signed a petition asking that the team sign head coach Jim Haslett to a contract next season. That's right. Even after yesterday's embarrassin ... More >>
Well, yet another Sunday has passed for the St. Louis Rams, and yet another horrific loss. See, the Rams played the 49ers yesterday. San Francisco, in no uncertain terms, is a crappy football team. Don't get me wrong; the Rams are also a crappy football team, but this was supposed to be their chan ... More >>
