‘How to become a Rams fan again’

7 Aug

My first major post for the RamPage can be viewed here. I took a bit of a personal narrative and looked at the St. Louis Rams ’14-’15 roster. I wanted to not only refresh myself on some of the key players for this new generation of Rams but also compare them to the likeness of the Super Bowl champion team from almost 15 years ago. That way, fans who like myself sadly, kind of put the Rams on the back burner can catch up to speed on the blue and gold.

Check out my friends’ and my new St. Louis Rams blog

17 Jul

My friends and I have started a locally-ran, independent St. Louis Rams blog called The St. Louis RamPage. Ran by fans and former journalism students, we want to give our take on the St. Louis Lambs Rams’ season, games, transactions, etc.I have been named a editor by the head editor Travis Zimpfer (@TravisZimpfer). I see this as an opportunity to learn more about football writing and gain more invaluable experience.

We at the RamPage see this not only as an opportunity to sharpen our writing skills but also to vent for and analyze what is sure to be an emotional season as our hometown football team battles in what may be the toughest division in the NFL. Follow on Twitter (@TheRam_Page) or like us on Facebook to keep up to date what a few dudes from St. Louis think about our beloved Rams who hold us over between the end and beginning of Cardinals season.
