Scott refused to wear any Blues or NHL gear to the game "in protest". He did, however, somehow manage to still wear blue to the game. He's such a rebel.
(Side note: I hate taking pics of myself. I always have a forced smile and really push my eyes out)
The pregame showed definitely got the crowd fired up.
Here we are with the Bluesiers that we sit by. Yes, we have the cheap seats and wouldn't trade them for anything.
The Blues put a spankin' on the Red Wings . . . something that hasn't happened in a long, long time. Definitely a highlight was seeing Tarasenko score 2 goals in his first ever NHL game. "Frank the Tank" was on fire.
The score was 6-0. The number 6 is very important to St. Louisians as it is the number of Hall of Famer Stan Musial. Sadly, on this very Blues home opener night, Stan the Man passed away. How fitting that the Blues would score 6 goals.
Scott Trade paid tribute to Stan during the 2nd intermission and then after the game, they left this up on the scoreboard.
When we left, we drove the couple of blocks down to Busch Stadium and the memorial had already begun. Tons of Cardinals' fans, a lot of them straight from the Blues game, were gathered around Stan's statue and were leaving flowers, balloons, hats, and cards. It was sad and touching to see so many people show up so quickly to pay respects to him.
