The best year ever in STL Sports

Recommended Posts

The Billikens go on a incredible run in the A-10 tournament winning 4 in a row to make the Tournament AND the Blues win the Stanley Cup for the first time ever!  This has to top any other year for STL natives/sports fans.

It is a good start of being one but could improve by 2 GT signings, Cardinals in the playoffs and early signings of Bradford and Kasubke

1999/2000

1.) Rams win Super Bowl

2.) Cards win Central division

3.) Blues win President's Cup

4. Billikens win Conference USA tourney

I'm sure Mizzou probably did something OK that year, but who cares.

Top two stories for STL sports: 

1) Blues win cup

2) Bills make the dance

I had a feeling this period would show up in this thread in the first few replies. That was also when STL was coming off the 1998 McGwire-Sosa HR race and flying high, and the Rams and Blues were both peaking (at least in the regular season, for the latter). The Sporting News named us the best sports city in the US around that time, as well.

Getting an MLS team would be a nice win for 2019.

If the Cards could make a run, having both a Stanley Cup and World Series in the same year would be impossible to top - unless you had another big win/event on top of our two high-level pro titles.

Who can forget the 1944 streetcar World Series?  Probably no one on this board attended it. 😎

Thank you for reminding me about the MLS team that would be the cherry on top.

Probably, no one on this board was born then, not even me.

I play hoops with 2 old fa*ts who were - one might have gone - he would’ve been 5 & eventually played for SLU - Frank Zavadil.  I met him in a 60+ league in Venice FL 👍

Indeed.

October 2011- Cards win World Series

March/April 2012- Blues won the old Central Division that year and won a playoff series against San Jose.

March 2012- Bills returned to the dance, beat Memphis in the first round, and took Draymond Green and Michigan St. down to the final minute in the second round.

Should have won that game. Draymonds non-called flagrant on Ellis looks even more flagranty knowing what we know about how dirty Draymond is.
