Pro-Found Mood of St. Louis Is a Trip for Bills


Miklasz, Bernie, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


It's looking up, St. Louis. We've gotten healthy and hungry in a hurry. In a matter of weeks, this city went from having no pro sports to just about every pro sport except for the National Basketball Association.

And if Charlie Spoonhour took St. Louis U. on another long trip, who knows what might show up? The Billikens went away for four consecutive road games, and by the time they came home to Midtown, the hockey season had resumed and the Los Angeles Rams were the St. Louis Rams.

"If you can get me out of here for another couple of weeks you never can tell what might happen," Spoonhour said Sunday night at Kiel Center, after SLU shot past Marquette 81-73.

This town is in a deranged state of Ram-page. The only thing moving faster than those PSLs are the Blues. The Blues jumped out of their red sox and pleased Mike Keenan with an automaton-like 2-0 start. The Millionaire Boys Club is shuttered; Keenan has apparently opened a para-military camp in its place. The Blues looked like trained killers.

Mysterious, wild-eyed kids were jumping out of airplanes from Peoria and scoring goals for Iron Mike's army. San Jose: over. Vancouver: toast. The Blues destroyed two teams, silenced hostile fans, and probably beat the smithereens out of a couple of Zambonis.

Not to get overly excited, or anything, but I'm thinking that if Shanny comes back in time, The Note probably goes 48-0 and gets Gary Bettman for a chew toy. And Brendan Shanahan was, in fact, lifting weights and working up a fresh sweat as SLU disposed of Marquette's Politically Correct Golden Eagles.

It's so busy around this place. The burning Ambush even drew more than 12,000 for Saturday night's kickball match against visiting Kansas City. Now we switch to Sunday night, with Shanny lifting weights in Kiel's basement and SLU lifting jumpers from the 3-point line. …
