St. Louis may be a baseball town first and foremost, but that doesn’t mean you won’t have an excellent time attending a Blues game. There is a festive atmosphere surrounding the Scottrade Center on game days that is similar to what you would find at a Busch Stadium, and all throughout the city, you’ll see people in Blues gear.
The second you reach the arena you’ll be greeted with tributes to some of the best players in Blues history. Outside the arena are statues honoring Brett Hull, Al MacInnis, and Bernie Federko. Make sure to stop by and snap a picture with these statues before entering.
Once inside the Scottrade Center there are even more displays dedicated to past Blues players including a bunch of retired numbers hanging from the rafters and a mural on the lower level. The mural pays tribute to all the best players in Blues history to wear the number seven, so take a minute to take it all in.
In addition to the history that permeates throughout the building, the Blues fans are also among the most loyal and diehard of any fans out there. While the Blues have been regular contenders during most of their history, they have often come up short creating a fan base who knows what it’s like to deal with the ups and downs of supporting a team. Additionally, keep an eye out for Towel Man and his wild goal celebrations when the Blues score.
Finally, the Blues do an excellent job of putting on an impressive in-game show. The Blues mascots Louie and the Blue Crew do a great job of keeping you entertained when the action on the ice comes to a halt. Also, organist, Jeremy Boyer is one the best in the NHL and a real treat to listen to during the game.
Most people think of baseball when they think of attending a sporting event in St. Louis, but the Blues also provide some incredible entertainment.
