Despite the fact that the Rams left St.Louis for Los Angeles there will be at least one football game played downtown inside The Dome At America’s Center (formerly Edward Jones Dome). Former St.Louis Rams wide receiver Isaac Bruce is hosting a flag football game featuring members from the “Greatest Show On Turf” era like Kurt Warner, Orlando Pace, Ernie Conwell and as well as coaches Dick Vermeil and Mike Martz.
The event takes place on July 23rd with the kickoff at 2:00 PM with the gates opening up at 12:30 PM. There will be a pre-game autograph session for premium ticket holders from 11:00 AM-noon. Tickets go on sale on April 21st at 10:00 AM at www.ticketmaster.com. Individual tickets are priced at $15 and $20. Premium tickets which includes on field autograph sessions limited to 1,000 tickets are going for $100.
I’m glad that this event is taking place because, despite everything that has transpired over the last year and some change. And it’s always good to see when an athlete of any sport comes back to St.Louis and continues to contribute to the community. But this isn’t anything new about Isaac Bruce. He has always made it a point to give back to the St.Louis community. And that’s just as commendable as his Hall Of Fame career as member of the Rams while they were in St.Louis. Bruce started his foundation in 2006 which put an emphasis on health, wellness, nutrition, fitness and education. This is what else Bruce had to say in a released statement: “We’re excited about being able to bring together a bunch of the Greatest Show on Turf guys and other Rams greats to be able to thank the incredible support over the years,” said Bruce. “We want to fill the dome up one more time and really show what an incredible sports city St.Louis is. We have the opportunity to raise a lot of money for the Isaac Bruce Foundation which we can then pour back into this great city and it’s real exciting.”
And there is excitement already on Twitter from Rams fans that still remain. One fan by the name Lezlie is planning on driving all the way up from Springfield, Missouri and bringing herself and four others along for the ride. Another fan Terry said,”I’ll be there! Last chance to tailgate and see our St.Louis Ram heroes.”
