Last night's arrival into St. Louis was to the chaos of Monday Night Football. The cab driver told me that we were in for a rough drive because of the game. My mind is thinking, baseball's over, it's not Sunday, basketball? No, a huge rivalry event game with Chicago. Downtown was packed even in the rain.

St. Louis airport has a really slow baggage claim. It's so slow that you can go eat, get a flu shot (I did last night, only $25 and no wait right next to baggage claim) and then wander about and the bags are still not off-loaded. At least I got the flu shot.
