I'm a St. Louisan trying really hard to follow the Cards and Blues while living in Atlanta. I've been shockingly successful.

I've been the blog manager for St. Louis Game Time since January of 2013, and have been writing for the site since July of 2009. I am also the associate editor at Bloguin's flagship site Puck Drunk Love, and I occasionally post on my own blog, Thrashing the Blues.

I was a season ticket holder and fan of the Atlanta Thrashers before relocation, but I've been a Blues fan all of my life. Whatever pessimism I have learned from sports, I have learned from those two teams. They have taught me surprisingly well.

Patrick Kane Censors Confused Child's Shirt

6

No need to get angry at Kane for covering up the Blues' logo here. The bigger question is what in the world is wrong with this child's sense of sports loyalty? He lives in Buffalo, is wearing a Blues shirt, and is sporting a Blackhawks hat while meeting a local hero. Kid needs to straighten out his priorities.

Sobotka Awarded 1-Year Deal Through Arbitration

11

Whenever Vladimir Sobotka decides to return from the KHL, he'll be property of the St. Louis Blues for a season.

Vladimir Sobotka Went To KHL Over "Respect"

15

Sobotka added the decision to make the jump to the KHL was based on wanting "to prove that I am more" and "go to a team where [they] will respect me."

From The Score.ca Because if there's something that the Blues did it wasn't respect Vladimir Sobotka, that's for sure. As much as I like Sobe as a player, I still think that he was overused on the second line despite his high corsi. This may've lead to him overvaluing himself, and adds to the absurdity of the situation.

Blues Got Hometown Discount For Stastny

1

"Colorado was great to deal with but we just could not match up on a deal," [agent Matt] Keator told the Post-Dispatch on Tuesday after the signing. "As we went through the UFA process and Paul looked beyond Colorado, the Blues became the best option. "Paul took less money and years to sign with St. Louis because it is his hometown and the team is a (Stanley) Cup contender."

Jeremy Rutherford, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
