    How T.J. Oshie Won Over America, Our Hearts and (Maybe) the Cover of EA Sports' NHL 15

    St. Louis fans have loved him for years, but Blues forward T.J. Oshie wasn't exactly a "star" around the rest of the league. Before the end of this season, his best year was 19 goals and 54 points. (He bested that by a few points this year.) And although he brings much more to the Blues than points, ... More >>

    St. Louis Inventor Hopes To Dangle His "Nutshellz" In ABC's Shark Tank

    Jeremiah Raber is your typical early-stage entrepreneur. He's invested thousands of dollars out of pocket, works from his basement and struggles to meet demand for his product. Oh, the product? An unbreakable, bullet-proof groin protector called Nutshellz. Raber believes in Nutshellz so fully th ... More >>

    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 >>

    Three Keys to Victory: San Jose Sharks at Blues

    The Blues play tonight at the Scottrade Center, opening up their first-round playoff series against the San Jose Sharks. Of the potential draws the Blues could have pulled, the Sharks would seem to be the most favorable for the Note; the Blues absolutely dominated San Jose this year, winning all fou ... 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 Stand (Mostly) Pat at the Deadline

    ​The NHL trade deadline came and went yesterday without the Blues making a big splash. They didn't go out and pry Rick Nash from the cold, dead fingers of Columbus; they didn't add either a goal-scorer or playmaker. Honestly, it was a bit of letdown. That is not, however, to say I think the B ... More >>

    Blues Score Three, Take Two Points From Senators

    David Perron, wicked handsome, wicked awesome.

    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 >>

    Blues Shut Out Canadiens, Take Over Division Lead

    ​The story line going into last night's matchup was supposed to be the return of Jaroslav Halak to Montreal for the first time since the Canadiens traded him to the Blues in 2010. There was plenty of buildup, plenty of anticipation. Enough, in fact, that there was really almost no way the game its ... More >>

Unfortunately, since it was a noon start (when did they start having hockey games in the middle of the day?), everyone I knew was working and unable to go with me. I briefly co ... More >>
