What started as a 62 degree day ended with a dusting of snow and featured a rodeo ride of weather situations in between. Parts of our area of Missouri experienced blizzard warnings, then there were tornado warnings later in the day when an insane storm blew through, bringing hail with it and frightening most of the Lou's dog friends. And even though we had to experience all four seasons in the span of just a few hours, there was one bright spot: that double rainbow. A wise sage by the name of Dolly Parton once said, "If you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain." Well, we did put up with the rain and it was totally worth it.

NEW YORK (AP) — On the same day the Mets put new reliever Anthony Swarzak on the disabled list, All-Star outfielder Michael Conforto sounded confident about returning to the lineup in a matter of days. Swarzak was placed on the 10-day DL after straining a muscle on his left side in his second appearance with New York. The team recalled right-hander Hansel Robles from Triple-A Las Vegas before Tuesday night's game against Philadelphia. "It's really frustrating," Swarzak said. Swarzak left Saturday's game against St. Louis and was later sent for an MRI. He went on the DL retroactive to Sunday and expects to miss a significant stretch of time. "A few weeks, from what I understand, is the best-case scenario," he said. The 32-year-old right-hander was the biggest offseason addition to a bullpen the Mets hope will be much-improved this season. The right-hander signed a $14 million, two-year contract after going 6-4 with a 2.33 ERA and 91 strikeouts over 77 1/3 innings in 70 … [Read more...] about Mets put Swarzak on 10-day DL; Conforto close to return
April Fools’ Day is a day to play pranks on our friends and loved ones. Cellophane wrapped on a toilet seat here, rubber ketchup stain there. You know, the fun, harmless stuff.And while it’s a day to play pranks, we figured it’s a good time to reflect on fools. Are you a fool? Do you live among fools?“We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools,” Martin Luther King Jr. once said, challenging us to be better.A few centuries before that, Shakespeare chimed in: “A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.”And the 1980s brought us Mr. T: “I pity the fool!”This April Fools’ Day, we had a little fun coming up with this localized list: St. Louis Fools. In general, people who don’t realize how good they have it. Do you recognize anybody? Can you think of more? Do you recognize yourself?You don’t need Mr. T to pity you, do you? Don’t be a St. Louis fool!1. … [Read more...] about Do you know a St. Louis Fool? Check out our list.
In the late 1980s and early ’90s, the Muny’s future was a big question mark.Edwin R. “Bill” Culver III, its forceful president and longtime leader, contended that the enormous outdoor theater in Forest Park was ... too small. He wanted to add around 7,000 seats and 4,000 parking spaces. That, Culver said, would make the Muny a better venue for concerts — and concerts were the future.Others — among them Post-Dispatch critic Joe Pollack — suspected the outdoor theater, where attendance was dwindling, had run its course. The Muny was rarely mounting its own shows anymore and already was running a winter season at the Fox. Under those circumstances, why not move Muny tour shows indoors (where it’s air-conditioned) all year long?“It makes me sad to say it,” Pollack wrote, “but I’m afraid that the outdoor Muny is no longer a proper theatrical site.”But early in the decade, the Muny took a completely different … [Read more...] about Muny at 100: St. Louis’ outdoor theater returns to its roots in the ’90s
