Lots o' Stuff

-How about this past weekend for St. Louis sports fans? The Blues win Friday at home...and Saturday on the road. They have now won three straight. Somebody told me that the Rams beat the 49ers. The Illini beat N'western to pretty much lock up a New Year's Day bowl game. Mizzou wins to set up the showdown with KU. Not a bad couple of days.

-Good to see David Perron sticking with the Blues. He definitely deserved it and left JD, LP and AM with little choice. I'm a little worried about Lee Stempniak though. He's been nowhere close to the player he was last season. Not sure what to think.

-Whatever happened to---

-Meg Ryan, Ted Turner, Garrick Utley, Lisa Bonet, Gregory Harrison, Debra Winger, and Jan Michael Vincent? Well, of course, there's a website that will tell you. But they have nothing on Meg...who seems to have fallen off the earth. Boy that lip job she had really took her out of the game.

-Well, I didn't watch the American Music Awards...I detest all awards shows except for the Oscars...but Chris Daughtry and his band were three-time winners at the show. It still ticks me off that he got booted off Idol and that gray-haired chump....hell, I can't even remember his name. Oh yeah, Taylor Hicks, won that year.

-I actually did watch the Rams game. And I thought coach Linehan came out of the gate well...but suddenly went into a "let's not lose this one" gameplan. There seems to be a lack of strategy "cajones" around there.

-Anybody want a football stadium named after them? The stadium at Lindenwood U. in Belleville (formerly Township High Stadium) has a naming rights opportunity. The Althoff Crusaders...coached by the legendary Glenn Schott... still play their high school games there. It would be great if somebody came up with the bucks to name it Glenn Schott Stadium. Anybody interested give me a call. I can help make it happen.

-Son Stewart has completed his run as the lead character in dark play or stories for boys at The Theatre at Boston Court in Pasadena. Stew tells me it was a great final performance with a packed house. A perfect start to his pro acting career. He's hired an agent...and is anxious for the next job. So are his parents.
-Son Ian is back working at the Allegria Spa, at the Beaver Creek ski resort in Colorado again. One snow! They seldom get to Thanksgiving without significant snow at that elevation...but they have this year.

-I'll be the parade announcer again this year for the big Santa Claus parade in Belleville. I'll be stationed in front of the Lincoln Theatre at High and East Main for all the fun. The thing kicks off at around 10 o'clock and will head east on Main Street. Thousands attend each year. I'm hoping for above 40 degrees. Doesn't look good. Everybody who visits here fairly regularly...have a great Turkey Day. And come back soon.
