Can I make a recommendation? Yes? Good. You should buy an AC St. Louis pint glass today and I'll give you four reasons why.
- It's Friday. And Friday night is alright for pints.
- At $25 a pop it's such a big F-U to sensible shopping during a recession that you kind of have to buy it or the economic terrorists have won.
- They could really use the cash.
- They may soon be collector's items.
But if there is anything at all positive about the situation it is that maybe this will serve as a reality check to the "St. Louis deserves an MLS team"-brigade. The 'Lou may have the history, but it doesn't have that dollar. The past only pays the bills if you are Michael Jackson and you own The Beatles catalog.
