Jackpot. I did a simple YouTube search for St. Louis Blues and found this ad campaign from the 1998-99 season. I don't remember ever seeing these commercials. I'm putting my favorite first just because of the absurd names used — this was a team that had Al MacInnis, Chris Pronger, Pavol Demitra and others but ... you know just listen.
More after the jump, including one that I predict will rile Hildy up with the whole female hockey fan debate.
Geoff Courtnall is ripped.
And finally, the Blues show off the new unis. Faces to look for: Demitra, Pronger, Michael Handzus, Marc Bergevin, Scott Pellerin, Craig Conroy, Michel Picard (who?), Tony Twist, Kelly Chase, Scott Young, Jim Campbell and Courtnall. Enjoy.
