Well, we survived yesterday’s field trip to Six Flags. Â The silver lining about going there during record heat was the fact that not too many other people were stupid enough to show up.
We went armed with a big ice chest full of drinks and food but apparently you can’t take any outside food into the park? Â WTH?
The water park was a blast for the kids. Â But the kid in me didn’t get to try any of the slides. Â I was there purely as a chaperone. Â Bummer for me… I hate being an adult sometimes. Â Haha!
Okay, back to grown up stuff:
1) Can we lay off the Plaxico to the Rams please? This has nothing to do with the his troubled past but as this article states adding Plaxico would be redundant. Â He’s not going to be the big time threat that this team needs and have been screaming for.
The Rams already have Danario Alexander, Dominique Curry, and 3rd round draft pick Austin Pettis on their roster. Â We should see what these guys can offer before bringing in a “project” in Plaxico. Â If the Rams are going to bring in someone from outside it would have be a WR who can make an immediate impact. Â And a preferably a young(er) impact player – say Braylon Edwards or Santonio Holmes.
2) Rams building a… playground. They’ve been doing the past two years, this year was no different. Â This year’s recipient of their works was Giant Steps of St. Louis located in Maplewood.
Usually this organizational event consists of many players but with the lockout the 127 coaches and front office staff, lead by Steve Spagnuolo and Kevin Demoff, had to pick up the slack.
They were able to get a special exemption from the league to have players participate but only 2nd year LB Josh Hull came. Â No football talk allowed.
It would have been nice to see some other players who spend their off season here in St. Louis step it up though.
3) More details from the “not-so-secret” meetings: Mike Freeman has a comical summary of what took place during the talks yesterday.
The talks are progressing forward so that’s always good news.
It strikes me funny that even as adults we still wait until what seems to be the very last minute to get things done. Â Like roller coasters and water slides, I guess certain things you just don’t outgrow.
