  1. Big win for the Spartans last night on ESPN, good to see Steeples putting DeSmet back on the map. Huge turnaround from a 1-9 season in 2015. https://www.stltoday.com/sports/high-school/football/de-smet-halts-cbc-s-conference-win-streak-at/article_6c92791a-dc23-11e9-8a15-776b7666451a.html
  2. What I've been saying all along, an existing and reputable sports bar in STL needed to jump on this location. Huge if true.
  3. I really hope the Blitz team doesn't settle, as I'm sure the NFL is becoming increasingly desperate to do so at this point in the process. Really want to see that human slime Kroenke and his scumbag sidekick Goodell having to testify before a court about how they intentionally defrauded the region and lied to the good citizens of St. Louis. A St. Louis jury will never have any sympathy for these sleezeballs.
  4. Anyone think SLU's overall soccer attendance is going to really increase this season because of all the MLS excitement and a general thirst for soccer in the region? A close relationship between SLU and the MLS team would be huge for the Bills program going forward.
  5. This is the appropriate lens through which we should view all people living in poverty, and especially those who end up in the criminal justice system. Great post.
  6. This post can't get enough likes. I for one am excited about the XFL and think it has the potential to garner a significant following. There's enough people who already hate the NFL who would love to jump on the XFL bandwagon, if Vince McMahon plays his cards right.
  7. Drove by Humphreys the other day, it apparently has a new "For Lease" sign up? Is it still owned by the same a-hole who originally lied about the proposed redevelopment, then threatened people on social media for calling him out?
  8. Won't the Foundry be finished up by this winter? Edit; I'm guessing the beer there won't be "cheap"
  9. Typical SLU. Why does it feel like there’s something new every single year that makes the SLU brand more dirty? Unfortunately though this isn’t surprising. Colleges and universities everywhere are paying administrators hundreds of thousands to do absolutely nothing. Hence college tuition ballooning out of control. Meanwhile students like Saadiq, and student athletes in general, are used like pawns, and they get nothing.
  10. What a **** show of a night in STL. When it rains, it pours!
  11. They've got the entire park across the street from SLU Law School shut down for the outside concert and watch party
  12. This is true, though it would be really nice to have a place right next to campus for Billikens fans to gather before the basketball games, which could also serve as a socializing venue for students on weekends. A place that's a little more upscale from Humps could still succeed in that area. Fieldhouse is nice but it's a little bit of a walk from the main campus and most students don't walk over there. The Humphreys location is perfect but unfortunately SLU will likely turn it into another surface parking lot.
  13. Oh I'm sure SLU is concerned with their own liability, hence reducing public drinking spaces helps them with that goal. The thing I am questioning though is whether reducing the number of public drinking spaces within walking distance of campus has unintended consequences. Namely, the number of intoxication incidences or ER visits. I would hypothesize that when students have no places to drink and socialize in public, that they instead drink in apartments and dorms, which may lead to more significant intoxication episodes. Again, I would be curious to see if there is data that supports this, but it's just my personal intuition.
