My last Blues game was at the Checkerdome. That place was cool!

I can just see the ads now... As soldiers pick themselves up off the battlefield, we'll pick you up!

Nice job Enterprise. Assholes.

One of the most embarassing things STL has done (imo) was to tear down the Checkerdome and develop the incredibly bland highlands development. I think they had an offer in hand from the guy who built city museum so imagine what it could have been.

Blues sold out the arena and 25k to watch at Busch. That city is Sports Crazed..
The big winner in KC was the Blue Line Hockey bar. The place was packed tonight and thru most of the playoffs

Wish the Mavericks were the farm club for the Blues instead of the Flames. That would have added to the fun.

I wish the Mavericks would get new owners. Since the Hunts bought the team, attendance has been dropping and they quit advertising the team. I haven't seen a bus ad, heard a radio ad, etc since they took over the team. It's almost like they are purposely trying to kill the team, maybe so they can move them to JOCO in the future to the new bluehawk or whatever it's called development? I wish they would join the AHL and move downtown at either municipal or sprint. I would go to far more games downtown than if the team was in either independence or joco.

This city and local media do a poor job of promoting any minor league sports. What about the basketball team? Arena football? The Comets? And while most cities would kill for a USL team, we have the Swope Park Rangers and there is zero advertising for them.

I agree - I think there have been 2 or 3 minor league basketball teams in this town over the last 12 years but you wouldn't have a clue cause they don't advertise or there is very little buzz (I think the team name was the buzz)

Another thing is just oversaturation of sports teams/entertainment options - We have way to many entertainment options in this town for the size of our metro

To be fair JSD has a weekly spot on Soren Petros show and they televise some games. I'm with you though this will be a pretty unpopular opinion but the Hunt's are pretty shitty owners with the Chiefs being the exception though that wasn't always the case. The location of the arena is a damn hassle. I basically can only make it to Saturday night games. I work in Olathe and going to a Friday game takes me about an hour with traffic.
