This Just In: Anheuser-Busch Join St. Louis Expansion Push
Damn, talk about a 90th minute push for an equalizer. While the New Soccer Nation waits around for word from the Portland City Council, Anheuser-Busch has gotten in on Jeff Cooper's action in St. Louis but it might be too little late. They're essentially signing over the deed to a soccer park they own that has a small stadium. Someone please correct me if I am wrong but wasn't St. Louis' stadium plan the strongest thing about their bid and it was cash that they needed? And apparently this new site has a few issues that would most likely set the construction timetable back significantly.
Perhaps this is just a way to flag down The Don on his way to the departure lounge before he gets on a flight toward the Pacific Northwest; the league has issued an official press release so they are taking it seriously. That Anheuser's big bucks would be a great asset to the league is certain, whether they actually plan on kicking in though doesn't seem certain from the article. The logo would be completely fantastic on jersey though...an instant American classic.
