Is this guy under-appreciated?  (The one of the left)
Is this guy under-appreciated? (The one of the left)

Blues News:

  • While sporting our shiny Tarasenkos and Allens, do we forget to appreciate our Steen? It is a worthwhile question about a guy once voted 'most under-rated' by his peers.  Buffa82 asks the question in this 'lame article.' [STLGT]
  • Two Blues prospects will be trying out for team Canada.  Get the scoop from Hildy. [STLGT]
  • Five Blues players are on the fan ballot for this year's reinvented all star game.  Who are they?  I'm not telling, but this guy is. [Fox]
  • The Blues had a spirited practice involving Christmas music yesterday.  Will they recover from the stinker they played on Tuesday? Blues beat man Rutherford has the scoop. [STL Today]

Hockey News:

  • 4 games last night.  I didn't watch any but I hear some teams won. [NHL]
  • 8 games tonight.  You're cheering for Ottawa, Vancouver, Toronto and Florida. [NHL]
  • Don't vote for Jagr for the all star game.  His ancient body can't handle the 3-on-3 format. [Puck Daddy]

Other Crap:

  • Good old American Ingenuity. [Distractify]
  • A guy named Butt won an award for Tight End of the Year. All is right in the universe. [Deadspin]
  • Today's beer of the day is Brother Thelonious from North Coast. When I think of a guy like Alex Steen, with his quiet perseverance, under-rated skill and apparent sense of humor, I think of this wonderful beer with a unique name. This robust Belgian ale has complex flavor with fruity undertones and a tangy finish. [Untappd]

Song of the Day:

Sometimes when I see people take unnecessary shots at other people I think of this song.
