Oh my God!! What a game the Cardinals played last night!! It was the best baseball game, check that, the best single sport game I've ever seen in my life. Simply incredible. Down to their last strike, twice, they were able to fight and claw their way back and win the game. Amazing. The hometown hero, David Freese becoming a WS legend. The best baseball game ever played. Let's try to get to the Rams news shall we?
Sam Bradford didn't practice again and it is unlikely he will play Sunday. Jason Smith and Darell Scott also didn't practice after suffering concussions against the Cowboys. Both unexpected to play. Danario Alexander, Brady Poppinga, and Justin King all didn't practice yesterday. All three might be able to play Sunday. The Rams have been bitten hard by the injury bug this year, but still it's no excuse for the embarrassing play this team has put forth.
The Rams signed Mark LeVoir to a contract after Jason Smith suffered what appears to be a severe concussion. This his actually his second stint with the team, as he was added to the roster in 2007 from the Chicago Bears practice squad. He never was active in a game though. It appears he is the 3rd OT for Sunday, so if either Saffold or Goldberg go down, he will find himself in his first game as a Ram.
Jack Youngbood had some choice words in criticizing the Rams for not honoring the LA Rams players enough. He said they they are begin cast aside. He said the Rams don't really have anything to do with them. The team fired back saying that indeed they've honored the past Rams. They've retired Deacon Jones' number and had days to honor other LA Rams.
That is not true (Youngblood's comments), according to a 697-word accounting the team published Thursday. That accounting said the Rams' recent efforts to connect with their past included jersey-retirement ceremonies for Deacon Jones and Isaac Bruce; game-day appearances by 10 retired St. Louis-era players, including Grant Wistrom and Orlando Pace; and game-day ceremonies honoring Eric Dickerson, Tom Mack, Merlin Olsen (through Olsen's son) and Youngblood himself.
I honestly don't know what to think of this. I'm 18 years old so the Rams have been in St. Louis almost all of my life and as long as I can remember. I honestly don't know much about the LA Rams, and I curious to hear what our large contingency from SoCal thinks about Youngblood comments. Are they right?
That's all for today. Have a good on and GO RAMS!!
