Happy Monday Rams Nation, hope the weekend went well. Anyone else still nervous from the #SkyWire act last night? Anyways, we are only 12 weekends away from the start of football. While NFL news is still being dominated by the Aaron Hernandez saga there were some highly notable St. Louis Rams-related articles this past weekend. These should be enough to ease you into the week!

Some say Sam Bradford…
Some people have it all… success, a high-paying job, perfect hairs, a 90+ mph fast ball? Ok, maybe not that fast, but Les Snead did take to the mound this weekend for a ceremonial first pitch. Sadly, the video feed was lost, so there is no “proof” of the pitch. However, there are a couple of pictures to capture the moment.

Nick Wagner, Senior Writer for the official St. Louis Rams page, gives you anything and everything you could want to know about the battle…
In case your internet was done this week, or you live under a rock, the news was released on Saturday that the NFL will honor the late Deacon Jones in a very special way. Not only is Jones already immortalized in the National Football Hall-of-Fame and has his jersey retired in St. Louis, his name will now be attached to the annual award given to the player that leads the regular season in sacks.
