Wednesday Links - "BASEMENT . . . NOW!"

The Wayne Train had himself a game. - Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Where do the Blues go from here? Who wrote our eulogy? Who will win tonight's Game 7's (THREE of them)? Why are pots calling kettles black? Why is Donald Sterling such an asshole? And why aren't we cheering the bravery of a weatherman in Tupelo? All that and more!

Hello again.


  • Sean McIndoe (Down Goes Brown, to most of you) recaps a shitty end to the Blues season in an unusual serious tone. (S/T to CapsFan75) [Grantland]
  • Ken Hitchcock met the press yesterday, and Lou was there to cover it. [In The Slot / Lou Korac]
  • Also speaking with the press yesterday . . . actually, speaking AHEAD of hitch . . . was Doug Armstrong. He answered some things but left other questions open, as Hildy notes. [SLGT]
  • A look at Blues contracts heading into 2014-15, from rminton618. [SLGT]
  • A couple FanPosts from "stlfan" . . . first, he recaps how well (or poorly) his 2013-14 numbers projections where . . . [SLGT FanPosts]
  • . . . then he looks ahead to 2014-15. [SLGT FanPosts]
  • The Puck Daddy Eulogy for the St. Louis Blues went up yesterday. I could tell which jokes were written by the Committed Indian guys . . . they quite obviously wrote the good jokes. [Puck Daddy]



  • The National Basketball Association banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling from the league for life, and also fined him $2.5MM, for racist comments made in a private recorded conversation (which was actually part of a large pattern of racist assholish behavior on his own behalf). Here's SBN's StoryStream on this mess. [SB Nation]
  • Want a giant igloo? Well, one's for sale in Alaska. [Y! / AP]
  • Of all people . . . Yankees fans were booing second baseman Robinson Cano and calling him a sellout last night as he made his first appearance in the Bronx since signing with my "second baseball team", the Mariners, in the offseason. Yankees fans. Booing a player. And calling him a sellout. YANKEES FANS. BOOING A PLAYER. AND CALLING. THAT PLAYER. A FUCKING. SELLOUT. [SB Nation / Lookit]


Let's go to Tupelo, Mississippi . . . they had a horrible tornado down there the other day, and this weatherman did an UNBELIEVABLE job covering it:

Ballsy. Ballsy, ballsy, ballsy. And incredibly well done.
