  1. I was at the game. My first SLU soccer game since the old Bronze Boot games were held at Busch 2. So, I don't know, 40 or more years? I found out an old fuoker like me can get season tix for 25 bucks. I probably won't go to every game but I had a good time and plan on going back. The crowd was great, announced at around 5900 I think. I must say I don't know if that's the norm, I kind of doubt it. I sat on the east side right next to the Slunatics. The Slunatic leaders worked really hard to keep the students engaged and they seemed to be having a fun time. Someone more knowledgeable than I will have to chime in on the quality of play and/or how good this team is. It seemed to me that SLU stood toe to toe with the ninth ranked Irish for much of the game. Had some brief lapses (especially less than two minutes in) that led to ND goals and I guess maybe that's what separates the great teams from the just pretty good.
  2. I'm not doubting you (I'm just an MBM) but who decides who is the "leading speaker" for college and pro sports? And are there a bunch of them out there? Is this why the Billikens have been so bereft of big success? Never hired a leading speaker before? More importantly, does he have a speech to improve free throw shooting?
  3. I was at a mens/womens doubleheader last season. Might have been a Saturday, the men's game was played first and the joint pretty much cleared out after that. I was staying for the women's game and was having an expensive meal on the quiet concourse between games. A young couple with a little girl (maybe 3 or 4) came out of the alcove into the concourse just as The Billiken happened along. Little girl screams bloody murder. Bloody murder of Biblical proportions. Almost dropped my Chicken Nuggets. Birds flew out of trees miles away. A bit of the ice shelf broke away in Antarctica. The Billiken, realizing he is the cause of this ruckus, backs up and ducks out of sight until the parents can whisk the terrified youngster away. I'm afraid that young lady will never be the same and will NEVER attend SLU. Personally, I think the newer new Billiken is less scary than the older new Billiken but there is something about the side view (especially the jawline) that just ain't right. I guess it's the best they could do. I was just fine with the old Billiken but marketing, etc. I get it. It's why the Cardinals bring out a new jersey every couple of years right at the holiday shopping season. As always, can't wait for the start of the new season. Let's go Bills!
  4. Never mind. Already covered in non con thread. Mods delete if I can't figure out how to.

  6. They moved back to the Arena cuz the Kiel was being torn down to build the Kielvisscottenterprise whatever. Did you forget that?
  7. His name is spelled Bakken. I know, everyone makes mistakes. Here is how his webpage at the St. Louis Sports Hall of Fame is shown: JIM BAKKEN Football Born: November 2, 1940, Madison, Wisconsin Position: First Base Played For: St. Louis Cardinals (1962-1978)
  8. This is what jumped out at me from the Dayton AD's thoughts: we’re just relentless and aggressive in our pursuit to position and fight for Dayton basketball, to fight for our students, to fight for our fans. Ever hear anything like that from any spokesman at SLU?? Yeah, me neither.
  9. Yeah, I'm fine with it. Working within the rules as they exist.
