Before the season, my brother told me the St. Louis Rams would win six games. I didn't say anything, but I thought he was crazy. They were just so bad last year, I couldn't see them improving that much.
I went to St. Louis Sunday to see the Rams' game against the Carolina Panthers (the Rams won 20-10). I like watching the games on TV, but I have to admit they are more exciting in person. Sam Bradford (above) was the No. 1 pick overall in this year's NFL draft. His reward? A contract for $50 million, and, so far he looks like he's worth it. (Click on any of the images to enlarge.)
The Rams didn't look like they were ready to win the Super Bowl, but they did what they had to do to win -- TCB. This put the Rams' record at 4-4 halfway through the season. Looks like my brother was right -- they are likely to win six (or more) games.
Don't have a ticket? No problem. A scalper and a fan (above) do some business.
