There are dozens of useless college bowl games. I’m surprised someone has never gotten the idea to put one in St. Louis.
Almost every bowl game as a gift bag for every player that participates in it.
If St. Louis had a bowl game, player swag bags would have to include, at the very least, gift certificates for:
* Charlie Gitto’s on The Hill toasted ravioli, rumored to be the original but definitely the best
* Ooey gooey butter cake from Park Avenue Coffee in Lafayette Square, just as good as anyone’s and more varieties to choose from than anywhere
* Imo’s Pizza. Yes, I’m partial to Fortel’s, but Imo’s is the best stereotypically St. Louis pizza, very thin crust and cut up in rectangles.
* Any given renovation company to give your house a new kitchen zinc and a new warshing machine. (Inside joke)
Who wants to help me out with unique St. Louis items for the swag bag?
