I mean, I dont care.  Not sure the rest of the cities feelings. I'd rather have rugby team 

Why not both if they can be supported. Odds of me paying to ever had seen the Aces unless they'd had moved the open to here but I loved having a team. Chess, roller derby bring it here imo. Has to be major league.

Aces were dope. This is the most opportune time in history for niche and growing sports. The amount of avenues on social media to reach an audience are nearly endless. There are so many streaming services to showcase your league like YouTube, ESPN + NBC sports. Indoor Football, Roller Hockey, Indoor Soccer, WTT, Rugby, Lacrosse can all find their niches. If someone wants to give it a go here, I say bring it. Don't care what the sport.

Pre cable good comparison except back then any forward thinking folks knew we were missing a bunch of cool stuff. NFL,  NBA, MLB, NHL were the 4 networks.Much of the new stuff escapes me but somebody will like it.  I haven't noticed that crazy drone competition I stumble upon last year is that already history.

Does Vince M. have anything to do with this version of XFL?

I wouldn't automatically assume that what they would plan would be another Paddy O's.

Wether it be another Paddy Os, Humphreys or something different. A bar is a bar and I’ll be happy as long as that is the plan

Humprhrey O's

Last time I was in Humphrey's was probably 7-8 years ago. A buddy and I were looking for somewhere to go after the Blues game and he suggested Humphrey's. At the time he hadn't been living in St. Louis for about a decade and wanted to relive the glory days. Place was slammed and we weaved our way to the bar. As we're getting our first (and what turned out to be our last) drink, he starts talking to some chick. 2 minutes later they just leave the bar area and I'm standing there solo for about 7.5 minutes. He comes back, tells me he just had some fun in the janitor's closet, she told him  "thanks, see ya",  and they walked their separate ways. I slammed the rest of my beer and we walked out, never to step foot in Humphrey's again.

I believe I am the owner of the last plunger ever given at Humps.  I was there with my oldest having lunch a few days before they closed and asked our waitress if I could bye one.  She said they didn't have any left but 10 minutes later came back with one she said was in the basement.  She didn't charge me for it and asked if I wanted shot in ti. I should have accepted but thought it would look back in front of a 7 year old.

What I've been saying all along, an existing and reputable sports bar in STL needed to jump on this location. Huge if true.
