This Special Edition of Sarkes Corner is brought to you by the Newly created Sarkes Corner Sports Bureau.
The St. Louis Blues came into the National Hockey League (NHL) in 1967. While the Blues never really stunk, they have never won the Stanley Cup until now. After 52 years, the Blues beat the Boston Bruins for the Stanley Cup.
The victory parade for the Blues was like none other ever held in St. Louis, even greater than the 11 previous parades the followed World Series Wins by the St. Louis Baseball Cardinals. It was anticipated that 500,000 Hockey fans would show up for the Rally and Parade, but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch estimated that close to 1 Million Fans attended the Rally and Parade.
St. Louis, Sarkeses hometown, is in Missouri, formally the Show Me State and now better known as the Shoot Me State. So, what’s even more surprising than the close to 1 Million Fans attending the Rally and Parade, most of them packing Heat, is the fact that NO ONE GOT SHOT! Given the mass quantities of local Anheuser-Busch products consumed, this is nothing short of a miracle.
There was a mass of humanity from the St. Louis Arch grounds reaching all the way into downtown. It is estimated that there was 2 times as many people for the Blues Rally and Parade than for the Orange Cross-Checker’s Inauguration on the National Mall.
A plethora of Celebrities attended the Blues Rally and Parade including St. Louies; Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Jenna Fischer (The Office), and the Anheuser-Busch Clydesdales. Also, many past St. Louis Blues from yesteryear attended including The Golden Brett, Brett Hull.
While the St. Louis Blues fans were celebrating their first Stanley Cup, the Piece of Excrement and Pond Scum known as Stan Kronke could not be forgotten. Stan Kronke, the unethical and despicable owner of the Los Angels Rams, made his money the Old Fashioned Way, he married Sam Waltons daughter.
Shortly after the Blues secured the Stanley Cup, the Orange Slap Shot started tweeting:

Congratulations to the St. Louis Blues for finally winning the Stanley Cup. For a half century, the Blues were Looooosers, Looooosers. After I won Missouri by a record vote in the 2016 Election, the Blues became Winners!!

I was a star Hockey player at the University of Pennsylvania and could have been a star in the NHL had it not been for my Bone Spurs. If I had played for the Blues, it would not have taken them 52 years to win the Stanley Cup.

I suspect that there will be 1000 per cent participation by the St. Louis Blues when I invite them to the White House. There are no Blacks or Mexicans playing for the St. Louis Blues. While the Blues are loaded with Canadians, if that Panty Waist Justin Trudeau tries to keep the Canadian Blues from coming to the White House I will hit Canada with so many Tariffs that their heads will spin.

The failed St. Louis Post-Dispatch, another Fake Newspaper like the New York Times and Washington Post, reported that close to 1 million Fans attended the Blues Rally and Parade which was several times more than attended my inauguration. Everyone knows that more people attended my Inauguration than ANY OTHER EVENT IN HISTORY, no other event came close, even the Rally in St. Louis. FAKE NEWS. Should be renamed the St. Louis Post-Disgrace.
