    The Cardinals are actually the NL equivalent of the Yankees. They have 11 titles. The closest NL team is the Giants with 8 titles. The Yankees, of course, have 27 titles. If the Blues win, that's going to leave the Leafs as the NHL's most hardluck team. They're the only Original 6 team not to win a Cup over the last 30 years. The Leafs are the last Original 6 team to win the Cup when there were only 6 teams. Hell, they haven't been to the finals since. If the Raptors win the NBA title(they're up 2-1) that will leave the Leafs as Toronto's hard luck team as the Blue Jays have a couple of titles and the Argos have won a few Grey Cups in the 2000's.

    Funny Blues video. The night they went into the stands in Philly after some fans threw stuff at them. This is before the Flyers became the Broad Street Bullies and at this time the Blues, and more specifically, the Plager brothers were public enemies #1 to Flyer fans. Flyers GM Keith Allen got tired of getting beat up by the Blues and started drafting tough guys like Bob Kelly, Andre Dupont, and Dave "The Hammer" Schultz.

    They do have Sith robes and Palpatine's cane for sale in Doc Ondar's Den of Antiquities for sale. You just can't be in costume when you visit Galaxy's Edge probably for the reason you mentioned. I've been watching YouTube videos of people going through the park. There are quite a few items I'd like to pick up if I ever get there....

    I do agree. The Blues have always been popular with the St Louis fans. The Cards and Blues have always been favorites. I remember some of the old Blues players, like Brett Hull and the Plager brothers and a golden oldie, Gus Kyle. Once in a while I'd get free Blues tickets from my office and my favorite memory of the Blues were the tickets I got from a client who couldn't use his season tickets. They were center ice, right up at the glass where you could see all the fights and have them come crashing up to the glass. Now that was exciting. I usually was up in the nose bleed section.

    People forget that St Louis once upon a time had major league basketball--the St Louis Hawks. One of their stars was "Easy Ed" McCauley. He later was a coach at St Louis U and was doing physical therapy on his knees the same time I had knee surgery. He was at retirement age then and talked about how rough the sport was on his knees. Ed was very encouraging when I had a tough time with my knee rehab, a very nice person.

    OMG, what a disgrace of a game.

    I took my Blues shirt off. After a game
    like tonight it's hard to believe the Blues
    are in the Finals.

    They better get their shit together
    for Wednesday.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Talk about a fair weather fan. I felt bad enough about it but SR has been obnoxious and rubbed it in my face all night.

    The Blues blew their chance. No way Boston loses another home game.
