My neighborhood was in chaos Wednesday night after the St. Louis Blues won the Stanley Cup, finally, or more accurately, for the first time ever. Great vindication for my dad who so wanted to see the Blues win that he bought season tickets for many years.
So my corner of the metro area had fireworks coming from every direction, people just standing around hollering, car horns blaring, etc.
Then, Thursday morning I went to the dentist, and after I walked in I heard the dentist say “LGB,” shorthand for “Let’s Go Blues.”
Odd. Because the Blues have no where else to go, unless the plan is to have them win the Stanley Cup every year. But the dentist is enjoying the afterglow, and deliberately tuned the office radio station to the station that is playing nothing but “Gloria,” the Blues’ theme song. I heard Gloria every fifteen minutes for an hour and a half.
