Jeff is in for the Wake Up Hour to break down last night's Blues game. Hard to win a lot of games with no depth scoring. Jeff also gets into the discussion of Tom Ricketts buying the Gothamist and DNAInfo and then running them into the ground. Are you ready to take a trip to FlavorTown? Little bit of Guy Fieri talk. Talking about the Maple Leafs game this weekend is on Hockey Night In Canada!
It's a lean crew this morning with just Jeff and Chris in to start off Saint Louis Live. Trump had his Twitter account shut down by a rogue employee and that person can probably spin it into fame. The Blues finally lost a home game and it's pretty hard to be undefeated. The immensely funny Steve Byrne (@stevebyrnelive) joins us in studio to talk Penguins, comedy, and his sets at Helium this weekend.
The second hour is a big one for the TALK SPORTS crowd. Gaines is in to break down the moves the Cardinals have coming up. It seems like Greg Holland may be in the offing and no one is excited about that. Naming four players the Cardinals are guaranteed to have in the lineup at the start of the season is pretty hard, as it turns out. Benjamin Hochman (@hochman) of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch joins to talk Cardinals and Zach Freeman of Bellator MMA.
The hour kicks off with an interview with former Mizzou tight end Martin Rucker (@ruckersouthside). Ezekiel Elliott is apparently not suspended again. Does Jeff want to be Howard Eskin when he grows up? Gaines is bummed that the Cardinals are going to miss out on all the good managers. STL media repped hard yesterday. Fair or Foul closes the show as always.
