  • A new way too early look at where Drew Lock could land in the NFL

    ST. LOUIS, MO- Back in April, we used this space to take a way too early look at which NFL city Drew Lock could call home in 2019. Is it still premature? Sure, but the first three weeks of the college football season have shown pro scouts that Lock, the University of Missouri senior, really does have all the makings of a first round QB next spring, and possibly the first one off the board. We also have at least […]

  • In interview, Jon Hamm expresses interest in playing Batman

    ST. LOUIS, MO – Could a St. Louis native made famous for playing Don Draper be the next to don the trappings of a certain Caped Crusader? In an interview for In Depth with Graham Bensinger (11:30pm Sunday on FOX2), Jon Hamm says he’s never discussed the role of Batman with anyone in a position to make it happen, but sounded open to it. “I am a huge comic book fan, always have been.

  • Former Cardinal Luke Voit hits first two NY homers in Yankees win

    ST. LOUIS, MO- Luke Voit knows all about the shuttle between the big leagues and Triple-A. As a Cardinal farmhand in recent years, he was well aware of getting back and forth between St. Louis and Memphis.

Rosters […]

  • CIA releases President Truman’s first daily intelligence briefings

    ST. LOUIS, MO- For decades, U.S. Presidents have received a daily dose of intelligence information about the world’s hotspots and how it impacts American interests abroad.

Truman, in what was known at the time as “The Daily Summary.” The very first one,  dated February 15, 1946, references “Secret Yalta and Tehran Agreements for Sale in Paris,” discussions […]

  • PGA Championship fans get engaged at Bellerive

    ST. LOUIS, MO- The golf record books will show that Brooks Koepka won the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive, but you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone else who will remember their time in the crowd this weekend more than Mac Stoddard and Hannah King. Stoddard, an executive with the political organization FreedomWorks and King, an exercise physiologist, were in town from the Washington D.C. area. He bought tickets for Saturday’s round last summer and  asked her to marry him on […]

  • Why you may see yellow ribbons at the PGA Championship at Bellerive

    ST. LOUIS, MO- Golf fans can expect plenty of excitement Thursday as the 100th PGA Championship tees off at Bellerive Country Club in Town and Country, but spectators in person and viewers on television may spot some players with heavy hearts and yellow ribbons on the course too.

  • Key Cardinal evaluations in 2018 could impact 2019 squad

    ST. LOUIS, MO- With Sunday’s win against the Pirates, the St. Louis Cardinals have won three consecutive series for the first time all season. It is because it is the first time we can say this in 2018, and that it’s happening in August, which gives one pause about still passing a crowded field in the way of breaking the franchise’s playoff drought. So regardless of what happens to the team over the next month and a half, there are […]
