  • Thanks to All

    Just a big high five to everyone who came to town. Sorry to hear that locals Bob and CarolAnn succumbed to the flu Saturday (It got me on Monday).

    Great to actually share the action with the gang the second half, and see everyone get some great photos and autographs (Thanks to one VERY aggressive California gal!!)

    You have no idea how it makes my year to see everyone (Even misguided Eagle and Steeler fans (OOPS those mighty Steelers choked, so sad;) ), and special kudos to Julian, Steve and Liz, the best brits in the world (And I WILL come across the pond for a return visit with you "brilliant" people, this I vow !!) .

    Glad Steve could get to meet his "idol" Mr. Devaney, and we even met the infamous Miss California, Carrie Prejean, beau of Kyle Boller.

    Total bummer that Dez and Moira weren't able to come, though I didn't miss that OLD booze he brings (Never can find any NEW liquor in Scotland I guess!)

    Hope Maineram had a good time with his "roomie";)

    Also far more quiet with BigRed Man, always the life of the party, not there, nothing but best wishes for the big guy.

    Great bash, great prizes, once again.

    Best to all, and hope Renee finds work so she can come next year !!!!!

    Wish you all could be here every game, as it makes my Sundays a lot easier to swallow when we bite it.

    For awhile there, I though we might bring them some luck, but alas, it wasn't to be. At least we got to holler our lungs out as did the rest of the crowd, for half a game !!

    Whenever I'm out at Rams Park, I always tell everyone bout this bunch, and what great and loyal fans they are, and you all proved it once again !!!:ram:

    Barry, it's always great to see you. You add so much insight not only in regards to the Rams but also players on other teams. I don't think the bash would be the same if you didn't make an appearance. (By the way, I know deep down inside you really have lots of love for the Eagles! LOL!) I look forward to seeing you again next year!

      I had to be aggressive! Steve almost had Devaney in tears, knowing we all came from so far, hugged us and took a pic with him also.

      Let's see who all we got pics with. (Looking at my football). Chris Long, ,Greco, Brown, Smith, Boller, (Missed Otogwe as we were taking a pic) , Miss California,(Had to get her over for Steve)lol. I have to go by numbers now. 3. 72. 45. 59. 57. 46. 55. 77. There is more, but I can't read their sigs. Liz has all the pics.

      Jackson? Didn't even look at the fans.(He wore a nice suit though).

      Thanks Barry for pointing out who they were.

      LOL, Rick was a perfect gent with his roomie! Thanks to Rick and Renee babysitting me I got around fine, except for one stalker guy who was a fan we met at Big Daddies. Had to block the jerk.

      Red will be here Saturday and I will have him download the pics I got, and Liz and Steve will send and no doubt post the pics with the players.

      OH! and don't forget Barry about the pics of us gals kissing you. I can only imagine if Red was there, wish the big guy was as with dez.

      Dez, Red gave me the message to give to Julian to get you cigars, (I'm sure he got them).

      I promoted Clanram, as I was somehow lured on stage with a band across from the dome.

      I'm sorry you got the bug Barry. Rick got a nasty cold or something also.

      Avenger? Your questions were to hard! But thank you for all the time and effort you put into the Bash.

      Red? Thanks for donating, very sweet of you.

      So Barry, it was great meeting you and everyone, and I hope to make it next year.(Don't forget the CD you promised me).

      I am glad Ramsfansam and his wife were ok after getting into a accident on their way.

      Thank you all for a great time!

          Thanks Barry for coming out to the bash and for hanging with us in the stands. We have talked about that for years and now it has happened. Good seats too with the ability to stand for most the game. I always enjoy your company and your football knowledge. It is nice to share the misery of defeat with so many good people.

          Really missed Dez and Moira for this bash. Was bummed that Carol-Ann and Bob missed the game, all though I loved watching Carl put on a Rams shirt and go to the game. At least the Steelers lost so we did not have to hear that mouth running yet again.

          It was a great weekend. I have a scratchy throat also. I guess I got it too.

                Here is what happened in a nut shell through RamWraith's eyes:

                ***If I miss someone or something I apologize. I am summarizing the best I can, and with so much information and good times I am sure I will miss something. So anyone that was there feel free to add to this thread

                Arrived after an hour and 10 minute flight from Minneapolis, in which I was held up at the security check point...I guess I looked shady. We arrived around 6:00pm. Got to the hotel and immediately ran to the free drink counter at the hotel before the time expired. Downed my drinks and 1/2 of my wifes and met Big Blue. Blue is a super nice guy. He hasn't posted much, but let me tell you he is a die hard fan. This guy puts the "B" in big. I would bet that if we could have introduced him to Linehan he just might have started at one of the line positions. The beer tickets ran dry so it was off to the hotel troth to meet Dez. Here is the best way to put it. Airline tickets; $600.00, Hotel Room; $550.00, Ram memorabilia $425.00, seeing Dez again; PRICELESS! I love my bro!! We (I) drank and caught up on old times. In honesty it was the highlight of my trip, and my favorite part.

                I did not realize how much I had consumed until I woke up at 6:00 with this awful taste in my mouth and a splitting headache. My wife figured I drank a little too much as we sat down and came up with the numbers...ooopppsss. It was off to breakfast where we met Dez again and his wonderful wife (she is as great as the big guy). This is when I finally met the guy I have heard so much about. Randy (Big Red Ram). All I can say is what a HOOT. The guy came dressed in his kilt and full Irish attire and not once did I see the smile leave his face. A few other came a short time later. r8rh8rmike was the first one I got a chance to meet. I love this guy. ALL CLASS!! He is as funny and exciting as any fan I have met. One of them guys that make you proud to have as fellow fan and friend. He keep me entertained all weekend with his wit and charm. RamGram also came with I believe was her daughter. She is one to the sweetest people you will ever meet. Her love for the Rams is as noticeable as the smile on her face.

                At this point after some good ol' B.S.'ing, we split up. The family and I went to the Brewery and the rest headed shopping. The Brewery was not a good place to be after a tough night the night before. The smells of hopps and barley were enough to make me pretty ill feeling, not to mention the 8 block walk around the facility. And then to top it all off...they gave me free beer. Needless to say a few sips was about all I could take. All in all it was pretty cool, it just should have been on better circumstances for me. After that stop the family and I power shopped. Hitting as many out of the main-strip shopping centers as we could. Wal-marts, Targets, and Sports Authority came away...

                by RamDez
                Sitting in the Luxor in Las Vegas and was thinking it was time to show some love to the following members who made this all possible.

                RamGram, Carol-Anne brought the shirts and ALL those cute Ram trinkets that you all fought over She also helped me with paypal for the tickets, a BIG thank you pal.

                AvengerRam, he organised the dinner and before people start to moan, we only had 43 registered for the dinner, thats why there was only 43 seats the fact that 56 turned up ................. LOL Anyway, Big thanks David.

                A Big cheer to the Ram ticket office for being patient with us

                A big Cheer to Barry Waller for once again, supplying us with endless facts on the Rams and for being there for us when required. This guy is one of the unsung writers and I know that one day, someone will discover him Thanks Barry.

                And a final Big Thanks goes to my wife Moira (most of you can not say it correct) stood by my side and put up with all the Ram talk and sorted all the T shirts. Guys, just remember that this was our vacation time and she mucks right in

                Oops, Also, a big thanks to all that attended this Bash, we had fun ..... right?

                The Bash/Home Opener Weekend
                by RamsFanSam
                It's Monday morning - tired as heck from the weekend, but overall, it was well worth it! If you haven't been to a Bash before, you MUST make plans to go next year!

                My weekend actually started out on Friday morning. My girlfriend, Colleen, and I dropped our two youngest kids off at their schools and hit the highway by 8:30. One hour into the trip, we stopped in Lebanon, MO, at an outlet mall to rummage through the Rams gear. Though the selection was limited, we still found a few bargains.

                Back on the road by 10, we drove straight into St. Louis. I took Colleen to Union Station for lunch and more shopping. There's only a few stores there, but a few of them are loaded with Rams stuff! We added more items to our Rams inventory, not just for us, but for the young ones for Christmas.

                Next, we went to our hotel, and the desk clerk was nice. He allowed us to check in a couple of hours early - I guess seeing a couple dressed in Rams stuff instead of Cardinals red was the key! We got cleaned up and headed out the door for a little sightseeing and then on to Llywelyn's Pub (Soulard) for one of the Rams Kickoff Parties. I thought that the other Clanners who arrived on Friday might make it down to the Soulard Llywelyn's since it was the closest to the dome, but we didn't see anyone else there. Trish and Shannon, a couple of lovely cheerleaders arrived at 6:30, making their way through the crowd and greeting everyone. They took the time to stay and visit with Colleen and I for quite some time, about 45 minutes. They were extremely nice, very friendly ladies. I did get a pic of Colleen with them. About 7:15, Danario Alexander arrived. He, too, made his way around in the crowd, greeting and chatting with the patrons. He was very friendly as well. Colleen asked for his autograph and a picture, and he was more than happy to oblige. I will say he seemed almost embarrassed by the attention - almost like he was uncomfortable with being in the limelight. There was also another man in a Rams jersey who garnered a lot of attention - he walked through the door wearing a #31 jersey. At least two dozen people flocked around him wanting his autograph. He soon found a dark corner at the bar near us, and I mentioned I liked his jersey, telling him you don't see too many Archuletta jerseys being worn anymore. He said he wished he didn't wear it - people thought that he was Adam Archuletta. I thought he looked a lot more like Will Smith of movie fame. After all, Archuletta wasn't African-American, was he?

                They had some great giveaways and prizes, too. Spirit towels, tickets, VIP box tickets, season passes, a Chris Long autographed authentic helmet, a Steven Jackson autographed football, some jerseys - we didn't win anything, but we had a great time. One of the great deals was the beer - draft beer was $3.75 but if you wanted to keep the Rams beer glass, it was only $4.00. I got two...I have to admit, I wish I could have drank...

                Thanks guys
                by Rambos
                Just wanted to thank the people on this board, this has been and still is a tough season for our Rams. Never have I seen so many injuries even our coach is down. This year has been far from my expectations going in. Just wanted to say thanks to the fans on this board that have made it the best place to talk Ram football, get updates and keep the dream alive. When you’re down to your third string QB that pretty much sums up the season. Thanks guys for keeping it as positive as possible.

                A Bash Weekend/Game Perspective (It's a long one)
                by r8rh8rmike
                Amazing Amazing Amazing! This was the best Bash weekend I've ever had. A whirlwind of good times from the minute I hit town until the minute I left.

                After getting off the train in downtown, my brother and I met laram0 and his friend Chris at our hotel, got some Pizza and then went over to the Arch, which is the second best thing to do in St. Louis. While talking outside the entrance, I decide to call Ferter to see what he was doing, and as I'm calling him, I turn around and surprise, I see this guy a few feet away, looking at me with a smile on his face, to which I ask, Ferter?? And sure enough, it was the man, the myth, the legend himself with this beautiful woman who was somehow his wife. I don’t know how they found us, but I guess it was fate (just by random chance, we were also at the same 17 story hotel, with our rooms on the same floor, directly across from each other). We all went over to the Irish bar next to our hotel and had some drinks, talked Rams football, Clanram moments, and of course, had the now infamous Marc Bulger discussion, where I was ridiculed and pummeled by everyone involved. Good thing we all laughed and joked through the entire discussion.

                Saturday morning, laram0, Chris, my brother and I took a cab to the Anheuser-Busch brewery for the tour. Talk about a good deal, not only is it an interesting tour, but it's free, and at the end, you can sit in the tasting room and have your fill of several of their beers. laram0, Chris and my brother did just that. By the time we took off, they’d left about 20 empty glasses on the table. What a bunch of lushes! We decided to walk the three miles back to the hotel and got a new perspective on the city.

                Then later in the evening, we all met up for the Bash. We were back at Jake’s, and had some good discussion and bonding before dinner. It was great to meet some new attendees and see some old friends, especially RamGram’s family, who despite recent difficulties, made the trip. After dinner, we had the raffle, and I was lucky enough to once again clean up with some nifty prizes. Here’s where I need to give thanks to my buddy laram0. My eyesight in low light, looking at small type isn’t what it used to be, so when I couldn’t see if my ticket numbers were called, laram0 was kind enough to alert AvengerRam with, “Hey, numbnuts here has it!” So again, I want to thank him for that! We finished up with a few drinks, some more Rams talk, and a few laughs before heading out.

                Let me just say some things about the people at this year’s Bash. laram0 is now a close friend who I always look forward to hanging out with every chance I get. AvengerRam is someone I have a great repoire with, and a guy who keeps this thing going every year, always doing a magnificent job. Ferter said it well in another thread, we got along like we’ve been friends for life. He is the great guy I knew he...
