The St. Louis Rams will close out their 2011 season on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, and those in the St. Louis area who won’t be making the trip to the Dome will still be able to watch the finale. After being granted a 24-hour extension from the league to sell the remaining tickets, Rams ownership bought the unsold group to allow the game to be shown.
As much as we like to make jokes about not watching this team anymore, I’m very glad I will be able to catch the game Sunday since I won’t be making it to the game. As bad as things have been, this is still the last chance to see the Rams for eight months or so. Plus, Rams fans actually have reason to tune in on Sunday since the number one pick is on the line. It could also be the last time we are able to see many of the players and, more specifically, the members of the coaching staff before they are forced to find other teams in the offseason.
There is reason to tune in, and ownership has made it possible. You can complain all you want, and you have every right to do so, but I’d still recommend watching at noon on Sunday.
