Are you experiencing Cardinals offseason fatigue? Has watching the Rams enter the NFL Playoffs gotten you down?
Or maybe you’re just glad it’s Friday and the Blues are on a three-game (albeit low-scoring) winning-streak…Any which way, it’s always fun watching vault-vids of Tony Twist beating the tar out of someone.
