St Louis Blues

May 22, 2019 04:30AM
Ok, just two months ago I vehemently posted that I don't like hockey. Well, I'm still not nuts about the game but I have to tell ya... Frank and I watched the Sharks-Blues game #6 last night on tv. We watched it because 1) the Cardinals baseball game wasn't on tv because the game got postponed due to the weather and 2) we realized that a Blues win would be historic for the city of St Louis.

I understand the basic premise of the game (get the puck into the net) and that's about it. I don't understand the rules of the game or the lingo or anything else. So, during the game, I found a website "Hockey 101: A Beginner’s Guide to Ice Hockey" and would refer to it to find out the meaning of things like icing, power play, hooking, and offsides. It really helped.

I don't like hockey well enough to ever pay for a ticket and watch in person. But I have to say, last night's game was exciting to watch because of the magnitude of it all. To win and go on to the Stanley Cup finals was an absolute thrill for the city of St. Louis so I'm happy for them. They interviewed Brett Hull and some other guy after the game and they said after losing the Rams to L.A., and dealing with Ferguson and so many other issues, this was really nice for the city.

All I could think of afterwards was "not bad for a city that doesn't know how to support its sports teams". Take that, you-know-who.

  My one and only NHL game in person was in St Louis in Dec 1988.
