    Re: Rams Famous First

    Those are some interesting facts of a history rich franchise, however to be accurate
    * The first professional sports team to move West of the Mississippi
    The St. Louis baseball franchise has been in town since 1882.

    Well, actually the Saints made it in 1990 with an 8-8, but I think we are the first to WIN a playoff game with that record.

    Are the Rams the first pro football team to have a woman owner?

    My desire for accuracy is matched only by my typically absurd and invalid opinions.

    But it's my humility and modest self-image that makes me as great as I am.
