This Week’s City…

St. Louis is at an interesting time in their long history of sports. The Rams seem to be on their way back from the post-Kurt Warner years and the Blues finally have stability in their front office with a strong scouting system in place. However, it is their beloved Cardinals who have come to a crossroads. St. Louis called Stan Musial “The Man” when he reigned supreme at first base from 1941-1963, winning three MVPs and three World Series titles. Now, the focus is on “El Hombre” Albert Pujols, his three MVPs by age 31, his one World Series ring, and now, potentially, his final year in Cardinal red as his contract is set to expire. However, the most curious rivalry in the St. Louis sports culture is embedded in the constant conflict between professional and college sports, with Mizzou reigning supreme in the hearts of many, causing the multi-billion dollar professional franchises to often take a back seat to the Tigers in black and yellow.
This week will include an interview with CardsDiaspora.com writer Julie Adelsberger on HFA Radio Thursday, plus our weekly analysis and history overview of the Blues, Cardinals and Rams!
Stay tuned everybody!
