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.

Blues Got Hometown Discount For Stastny

"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
