ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Many St. Louis football fans are celebrating a loss today. The newly minted Los Angeles Rams had an embarrassing game against the San Francisco 49ers Monday night; losing 28-0. One area Dairy Queen is sweetening the schadenfreude. They’re offering cones for $1 after the loss.
The Facebook group “Bring The NFL Back to STL” posted this photo of a Dairy Queen sign in Arnold. A representative from the fast food restaurant tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that they expect to offer this deal all season.
Kevin Harlan gives fan on field Super Bowl play-by-play call
Radio announcer Kevin Harlan used a fan who ran onto the field to spice up his call of Monday night’s game between the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers, offering spirited play-by-play commentary as security chased down the fan.
The Westwood One announcer enthusiastically jumped into action when the fan ran onto the field with the 49ers holding a 21-0 lead in the fourth quarter, calling out the fan’s movements like he would a long touchdown run before finishing with “they tackle him at the 40-yard line” when security finally caught up.
Referring to the 49ers blowout, Harlan called the moment “the most exciting thing to happen tonight.”
The announcer may be right. His call of the action has become a trending topic on Twitter.
Carlos Hyde ran for 88 yards and two touchdowns and the San Francisco 49ers posted their first season-opening shutout in franchise history to spoil the Rams’ first game since moving back to Los Angeles with a 28-0 victory Monday night.
Shaun Draughn also ran for a score and Blaine Gabbert threw a touchdown pass to Vance McDonald to help the 49ers win their first game under coach Chip Kelly in convincing fashion.
After Los Angeles football fans waited more than 21 years to once again be able to call a team their own, they need to wait at least another week to see that team score.
Case Keenum threw for just 130 yards with two interceptions, star running back Todd Gurley was held to 47 yards on 17 carries and the Rams barely even threatened the Niners as they made only 10 first downs all game.
San Francisco wasn’t much better offensively but managed to run the ball fairly effectively early, leading to the two first-half touchdowns by Hyde and Draughn.
