    OT: Midtown Development

    I think it will work overall. But I doubt the eating and drinking establishment will be priced for a college student’s budget.

    Former Billiken in the news

    Ian Vouyoukas’s Greek Baskeball League team, Panathinaikos (Ian is team captain), had advanced to the league final this Sunday after their semi-final opponents walked out and forfeited at halftime in a protest over the refereeing. Panathinaikos is coached by some nobody named Rick Pitino.

    The Mayor of New York is ultimately the chief executive over five counties.

    OT: Midtown Development

    I think you have this wrong. This would have been true for previous unification efforts but this one is indeed structured differently. Under BT’s proposal, not only will the county lines be re-drawn, but the nature of every municipality within it be redefined. They would become new entities called municipal districts, an entity the state would not recognize as a municipality as we think of them today. This includes the City of St. Louis. So Chesterfield for example would not be treated as a city like it is now, but closer to area like Affton is right now. It would have no population to be counted distinctly as everyone would be included in the City’s (Metro-City) count. There have been some who have suggested the Census Bureau will need to weigh in on how they will handle this to be sure.

    OT: Ford’s seat getting warm

    People are applying upperclassmen expectations to a pair of sophomores (one of which missed a chunk of his freshman year). This is only because we don’t have other performing upperclassmen beyond Bess to lean on. If you want to be disappointed, look at the performance of two fifth-year seniors in Isabell and Foreman.

    Yes, it does seem out there right out.

    GDT: vs The SPAHderrrs

    Our guards don’t drive to finish like Mitchell or Jett could. They drive already planning to pass, which will never be efficient especially without shooters. I’d be more interested in seeing Thatch develop this than even his outside shot. Kwmain stands alone at the top, we haven’t had a player who could create offense like Mitchell could since.

    Richmond will contend soon if Mooney’s can keep players there.

    GDT: vs The SPAHderrrs

    Refuse to blame this game on the refs. We were out played and out coached for 40 minutes.

    GDT: vs The SPAHderrrs

    Ford was just flat out out coached tonight. No way to sugar-coat it. I’ve probably thought that less often than I thought I would when Ford was announced as head coach. But it just sucks to see that tonight.

    Ah yes the nefarious Democrat plot.......funded by the state’s most prolific GOP financier. Do you like anyone who doesn’t live within 10 minutes of Mid Rivers Mall?

    Looks like team camaraderie remains strong.

    Off topic: Screw Stan Kroenke

    The league still doesn’t want their books opened to the public or more importantly, anti-trust regulators. If the case were to end in a significant financial settlement or judgement in STL’s favor, Kroneke will be on the hook for all of it. Before giving him permission to relocate the league made Kroenke sign an agreement to cover any expenses incurred by the league or the other 31 franchises should they lose a lawsuit to STL. It has been suggested that if this were to happen we could see Kroenke sue the rest of the league. Could get quite messy. One can hope 😆
