Illini Come Up Short

It was close, very close. But the Fighting Illini came up short Monday night in St. Louis. So very close…

But close only counts in horseshoes and thermonuclear warheads. At least my hometown got some entertaining press coverage, including this column by Bernie Miklasz introducing St. Louis to his fellow journalists in town for the big game. And I will admit, I still lapse into the local patois and pronounce I-44 as ‘I farty farrr’ on occassion.

Hmm, that reminds me, I need to ‘warsh’ my clothes tonight…
