Tuesdays With Hildy: What's The Best Blooper In Blues History?

New, comments

Each team has opposite moments. What do you consider the Blues'?

It's never fun to look back and bloopers that changed the momentum of a major playoff series, or that threw a wrench into your team's best laid playoff push. The bloopers that are fun to look back on, however, are just the ones where you couldn't believe that they happened to begin with, but hey -- thank God they didn't do anything earth-shattering, right?

It's even a little more fun when you can factor in some sort of backstory. Take Erik Johnson, for example. Golf cart, blowed up knee, possibly going out and about partying too much, maybe his head wasn't in the game... spin the narrative however you'd like, but when the former first overall draft pick did this, you can't admit to being surprised:

Whoops. And where was Eeej just a scant few weeks later? Colorado. Did the own goal have anything to do with the trade? Of course not, but by God it fits into the narrative pretty well.

There are quite a few other notable goof ups in Blues history. What's your favorite? Share in the comments.
