St. Louis Wins the Stanley Cup!

St. Louis Wins the Stanley Cup!

Singing The Blues

This weeks’ TGID is dedicated to the St. Louis Blues and our friends at

TEMTRON INC, “Process Heat and Control since 1976”. 

 

It’s been a long time coming for sports fans in St. Louis – especially when it comes

to championship games against Boston franchises.   Boston is the only city to have

had teams that beat every ‘big four’ St. Louis sports teams - The St. Louis Hawks

lost to the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals in 1961, the Blues lost to the Bruins in

1970, the St. Louis Rams lost to the New England Patriots in 2002 and the Cardinals

lost to the Red Sox in 2013.

 

May 10, 1970, Bobby Orr slipped the puck into the Blues goal, capturing the victory,

the “cup” and hearts of Bruin fandom ‘fah-evah”.  It also marked the last time the

Blues, one of the most revered and feared franchises in the NHL, made the Stanley

Cup finals.

 

49 years, 1 month, 2 days later, the curse was lifted, the drought over, the St. Louis

Blues gave the mighty Boston Bruins everything they had and a that little bit more to

claim Lord Stanley’s Cup.  A series that featured hard nose and “jaw” play on both

sides. To my friends at TEMTRON and St. Louis Blues fans across the country,

I raise my cup in solemn salute.

              

A priest, a minister, and a rabbi want to see who’s best at their job.  So they each go

into the woods, find a bear, and attempt to convert it.  Later they get together. 

 

The priest begins: “When I found the bear, I read to him from the Catechism and

sprinkled him with holy water.  Next week is his First Communion.”

 

“I found a bear by the stream,” says the minister, “and preached God’s holy word.

The bear was so mesmerized that he let me baptize him.”

 

They both look down at the rabbi, who is lying on a gurney with wounds from head to

foot. “Looking back,” he says, “maybe I shouldn’t have started with the circumcision.”
