  • I'm going to be quiet this week.

    I thought I'd let everyone know that RamsFamily will probably not be visiting the website that much for this weekend. My father passed away Thursday at 2:30 A.M. I'd like to thank everyone in advance for the thoughts and prayers. Everyone yell a little harder for us when we beat the Pats this Sunday. We will be unable to watch the game or give our support.

    -Sam and the rest of the RamsFamily

              RamsFamily, my sincerest sympathy and a prayer for you and your loved ones in this time of mourning and meditation: may God be with you in compassion and consolation, in the promise of His eternal grace.

              We are with you, indeed, as part of your Rams Family.

                My deepest condolences. It's tough to lose a loved one. Just lost a good friend who was kayaking on the Potomac river in the Washington DC area.
                Perhaps they're shooting the breeze about football and tough rivers in the beyond, as those of us left behind open our hearts to each other to ease the pain. :upset:

                    Thanks to all of you. I don't think anyone here has ever heard about my Dad, but we did get some comfort from knowing the service will be fitting for a man of his background. Full military honors (he was a WWII vet, wounded twice, won 2 bronze stars), the Missouri State Highway Patrol (he was a 33-year veteran) will provide an honor guard, and even though my father retired in 1978, there were more than enough volunteers who worked under him still on active duty to be his pallbearers. Of course, he will be honored with a 21-gun salute from both the Army and Highway Patrol.
                    Knowing my father was so well respected to be honored this way really humbles me and makes me realize how fortunate I am to be the youngest son of this man.

                      Wow, you have every right to be very proud of your father and it sounds like he raised a son to be very proud of as well. Again, God Bless you and your family during this time. Take comfort and take care.

                            A Brother Needs Our Prayers.
                            by RamFan_Til_I_Die
                            Not sure how many of you may know this already, I know I didn't until today, but our Brother Randy, aka bigredman, has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He is in a cancer treatment center in Illinois and on Mon or Tue this next week he will be having a biopsy done I assume to determine where to go from here.

                            Most of us here know what an amazing person Randy is, as he has touched many of our lives in very special ways. If you believe in God, please get on your knees and pray for Randy's healing and comfort.

                            Randy if you're reading this, I want you to know that we love you and are praying for you. Hang in there my friend, and try not to harrass the nurses too much.

                            My end-of-season thoughts
                            by RamsFanSam
                            Today is the last day of 2006, the last time we will be able to watch our Rams play until next August. Seven months of drudgery, occasionally broken up by things like the Pro Bowl, Draft, free agency, and speculation.

                            To explain it in a different way, imagine this, if you will:

                            You LOVE chocolate shakes from McDonald's. (I know, it's a stretch, but bear with me, please.) Since the manager at Mickey D's knows you love chocolate shakes, and since you have been such a good, loyal customer, he gives you a card that entitles you to unlimited free chocolate shakes any time you want one. You could go get one 10 times a day if you wished.

                            For a while, you go every day. Soon, just a couple of times a week. Then, you only go to get that free shake once a week. They are free, so it's not as big of a deal as it once was, but you still enjoy it.

                            One day, you walk in, and the manager tells you that McDonald's has taken chocolate shakes off the menu, and it will be seven months before there will be any more served.

                            When you hear those words, you begin to panic. You can't live without those chocolate shakes. How will you survive? You'll try to find substitutes. You'll go to Burger King, or Wendy's, or Baskin-Robbins, but it's not the same.

                            Then, the day comes, and the shakes are back. It's still a Mickey D's chocolate shake, but the ingredients are a bit different. Soon, you find you are as hooked on them as you were the year before.

                            I want my chocolate shake! (Rams Football!)

                            This year, to change Charles Dicken's words, it was the best of teams, it was the worst of teams.

                            Why am I posting my not-quite-awake-yet thoughts? One reason - we did not have a team that was playoff caliber this year. We do have a team that is as good as the NFC West champions. We, if we win today, will have a firm hold on second place. We will have, once again, established ourselves above the whiners and Cards.

                            And, we have only one team in our way.

                            This year is over. Next season belongs to the Rams. Bank on it.
