Pictures from the past in St. Louis sports…

The end?? Or the beginning??

At the time…the last pre-season game at the Dome on August 28th, 1999…who really knew? The quarterback who was suppose to be the savior, the one who would compliment Marshall Faulk and this new high octane offense, was now lost for the year..his knee torn apart by a late (and some still say..cheap) hit by San Diego Charger’s safety Rodney Harrison. Trent Green is carted off the field, the crowd is in dismay, and I remember going to the press conference the next day to hear  Coach Dick Vermeil say, with tears in his eyes, “we will win with Kurt Warner.” I also remember asking a friend of mine as we left…”who the hell is Kirk Walker?”
