  1. Funny Stadium name-Corporation story. Anheuser-Busch, makers of Budweiser, purchased the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team and built a new stadium in 1966. The proposed name of "Budweiser Stadium" (or Park/Field/whateve) was denied by Major League Baseball due to the rule at the time prohibiting product names as Stadium Titles. So the Busch family named the park "Busch Stadium" after the family name. Not long after, they produced a new beer. "Busch Beer". Oops! Incidentally, the St Louis Cardinals of the NFL (now in Arizona) played there for years.
  2. A large majority of NFL fans support their local team, or the team their family traditionally supports if they have recently moved. The instances of fans supporting a team outside their city/region is growing, however. Some teams have a larger following outside their region, but that is pretty rare. The Dallas Cowboys were at one time the most popular team. The New England Patriots generally are disliked outside of the New England Region. The Green Bag Packers have the largest following relative to the size of their city (small by NFL standards). Other teams are 99% of their support regionally, such as the Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Falcons, and a few others. The Cleveland Browns have fan clubs in most major US cities, especially in the middle portion of the state. This is despite their lack of success for quite some time. Generally speaking, the more success a team has - WITH recognizeable elite star players (Peyton Manning type) then the larger following the team receives both locally and nationwide. I live in Indianapolis, IN and support the Colts, although I'm not a die-hard fan with multiple jerseys, go to practices or watch the draft. I didn't grow up here, which explains it I suppose. I have been to a few games, Lucas Oil Stadium is a great stadium.

  9. The S5 finale is available in the "On Demand" section of XFinity if anyone out there uses that television service as I do. (Ditched the Dish and loving it). Generally, 3 or 4 current season show are available and rotate in Nd out as well as 4-8 previous season episodes, also rotating. This, in addition to the re-runs each week night, and I'm good to go.
  10. Off topic, but it was asked... This Three Stooges fan is not interested in that movie. It looks like yet another atrocious modern adaptation (Nuns in bikinis? Give me a break).
