The St. Louis Blues is one of those pro sports franchises that just sort of is. They don’t move the needle for me in either direction. I neither like them nor do I hate them. Beyond being the Washington Generals to the Bruins Stanley Cup winner on Bobby Orr’s goal 40-something years ago, they’ve never done anything to inflame my emotions one way or the other. They’re the NHL equivalent of that guy you talk to at your high school reunion and you’re not sure if he actually went to school with you or he’s somebody’s plus one.
Until now. Until this playoffs when they’ve done pioneering work in the time-honored tradition of distracting the opposing team’s bench. Could this just be coincidence? One woman who has been gifted really great tickets and really small t-shirts to go with her superhuman ability to tolerate the cold? Possibly. But I like to think my newly adopted playoff hockey favorite is behind it.
So let’s go, St. Louis. Bring home the cups. I mean, Cup. Today … we … are all … Blues.
