KC Vs. STL

Anyone else notice how this game seems to be played at a neutral site. The crowd seems evenly split in noise level between the two teams. Something that doesn't happen when played in KC

Unless it's a Cardinals game at the K.

St. Louis is still taking time to recover from the World Series. I don't think the city realized they had a football team until last week.

Sorta like that time from 1995 to 1999?

Something I've noticed from living here for the last 7 years: the Rams fans aren't really Rams fans. They're not dedicated like the baseball fans or (God love them) the long-suffering hockey fans. They'll come out when the team is doing well, but really they could give less of a crap about the team. I think the psychology of it has to do with being gun shy after the football Cardinals, and all the teams that almost came to STL before the Rams.

Thankfully, I'm a Chiefs fan so yesterday was awesome!










:D
