    Looking for some recommendations.

    I am looking at booking our vacation this year in Vegas. I am planning on going there with football in mind so will be there Sunday and Monday night. I also plan on catching a show. Not much into running all over...there for one purpose eat, drink, gamble and have fun. Where should I stay and why??

    I have to know, How many are going to STL this monday night
    by lordwhttgr
    I have thought about it and am going to see the Star Wars show as well as the Game Monday Night. I feel its important to support my teem in their hour of need. The Rams have been very good to me and so I will make the trip.

    Who else is going to the game?

    Go Rams,,,Beat the Squaks!!!!

    What do you think of the Monday Night Football Crew?
    by BigGameMN
    I don't like them. Joe Theisman is a know-it-all and Kornheiser is out of his element. What were they thinking with this group? Another thing I hate is that they invite non-football people into the booth at various points in the game and they stay a LONG time. Last week it was Christian Slater and this week they had Jay-Z there. While I'm watching a football game I don't want to hear about somebody's new movie or music ventures. I want to hear the announcers focus on calling the game.
    Yep, I like 'em

    Monday night lights can illuminate Rams

    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    12/10/2006


    The magic begins on a field far from the celebrated glare of Monday Night lights. It begins under the low-wattage glimmer of some craggy patch of grass and dirt, with little boys scooting across Pop Warner practice fields in shoulder pads far too big for their pint-sized bodies. The momentum builds as it moves across small towns and big cities, growing under the ethereal yellow mist of every teenage boy's Friday night high school football fantasies.

    The glowing lights of football at night have always held a special allure to anyone who held even a mild infatuation with the gridiron. The sight of a colossal multimillion-dollar stadium aglow in the distance or for that matter, even a tiny, nondescript boys club field is the surest signal that the game's about to be transformed into a larger-than-life event.

    "I still remember my first Monday night game," former New York Giants linebacker Carl Banks told me several years ago. "I remember driving up to Giants Stadium as a rookie and seeing the stadium lit up from two or three miles away. I got goosebumps and butterflies right then and there, and they didn't go away until after the game. Don't let any player ever tell you 'Monday Night Football' doesn't mean anything to him. If you hear a guy say that, tell him he's lying. Monday night is big. It's very big and don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise."

    So the Very Big Show comes to town Monday night under the big top of the Edward Jones Dome.


    So maybe it's not quite as big as it used to be, having moved from network television to the niche world of ESPN; so maybe the larger-than-life, love-him-or-hate-him character of Howard Cosell has been replaced by the entertaining trio of Mike Tirico, Joe Theismann and Tony Kornheiser; so maybe because the game is being played under a downtown roof, the only glow in the night will be the neon lights of commercialism that decorate the stadium's exterior.

    But the game still carries a wallop when you're the only game on the tube. Reputations can still be made or ruined on "Monday Night Football." "This will be a tremendous challenge for this football team on the biggest stage in football, other than the Super Bowl and playoffs," said Torry Holt, the brilliant Rams receiver. "We'll either get embarrassed or we'll do some embarrassing."

    Oh yes, the game still has some clout. The Rams are a struggling 5-7 team. An underdog in their own home against the 10-2 Bears. They have not been on national television all season. They are a team devoid of a national persona. They have been limited to brief highlights on the tail ends of sportscasts. They are a mystery. No, it's worse than that; they are a franchise lacking any national consequence.

    Who's ready for Monday Night Blowout??
    by 1980RAMS
    This Monday night game is going to be one embarrassing night to be a Rams Fan. I hope you are all preparing for it in your own way. Wilson is going to torch us on national television. It's going to make the thurs night game vs the whiners look like chuckie cheese.

    GO RAMS

    Anyone going to the game Monday night?
    by MoonJoe
    I am fortunate enough to take my two brothers and my son to the game Monday night and I was wondering if any other Clan Members might be there? Now that work and turkey day are behind me, my mind is getting focused on the important things! I can't wait!
