  1. We visited the Upper Peninsula about 20 years ago and the Shipwreck Museum. For some reason the story of that particular shipwreck has always stuck with me.
  2. I'm surprised no one has posted this, unless I missed something. Some more good press. https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/dribble-handoff-predicting-college-basketballs-next-cinderella-team-to-make-the-final-four/
  3. Is it correct to assume that SLU does not "retire" uniform numbers?
  4. A very happy and holy Easter to all. We will be celebrating without our family this year. It is really surreal. I hope and pray that we can get back to "normal" very soon and that we are able to enjoy the Billiken season that we hope will be.
  5. Okay, hate to admit it, but class of 60. Planning our 5 year reunion for the 60th this summer.
  6. When I was at SLU, I was able to take a school sponsored bus trip to Cincinnati to see the Billikens play the Bearcats with Oscar. That was a thrill. The place was packed. I think the final score was about 70-40, Bearcats. I might add that the drinking age in Ohio was 18 at the time, so I took advantage of the opportunity.
  7. When the game didn't start on ESPNU because of the lacrosse game, I logged into 101.1 with Ramsey and Earl on Tunein. Then I found the game on ESPNnews and realized it was perfectly in sync with Bob and Earl's broadcast. So I just left the radio on and watched the TV. I thankfully missed all the TV announcers comments.
  8. I no longer have Dish, but when I searched on line, it seems that Fox Sports Midwest is back on Dish. Can anyone verify that? I am on Uverse and it does carry most of the sports channels.
  9. Yawn! I'm surprised there isn't anything else to talk about.
  10. Unless there is a great growth spurt, my 6 month old grandson will probably have to miss. I may try and work with him on the finer points of crawling over the holidays.
  11. Back in the early 50's when I became a Billiken fan, Harry Caray did the away games by ticker tape with simulated crowd noise and made them exciting at least for someone my age. At least for one season, the broadcast team consisted of Harry Caray, Jack Buck, and Joe Garagiola. I went to every home game when I was in school in the early 60's, so I did not pay attention to who did the broadcasts, but it is likely that Harry was still involved. I don't remember Blattner doing the games, so he may have done them after I left St. Louis in 1964. If he preceded Harry Caray as a Billiken announcer, then it would have had to have been in the late 1940's.
  12. I believe Gordon had 14 last year when we beat them.
  13. SLU got a mention on Sports Center in relation to this game. It was Kentucky's 2nd loss as a number 1 to an unranked non-major conference opponent - 1950 vs Saint Louis. How is that for a bit of trivia.
  14. I don't remember him missing that many
