busch stadiumThe St. Louis Rams will play on Monday Night Football this week for the first time since 2006. Unfortunately for them, there likely won’t be a ton of people around to see it.

Nearly every sports fan in St. Louis — a renowned baseball town — will be locked in on Game 5 of the World Series taking place less than a mile away at Busch Stadium.

And even without baseball stealing all the eyeballs, a game between the Rams, who come in with a 3-4 record and the immortal Kellen Clemens under center, and the 6-1 Seahawks is not expected to be particularly compelling.

Sure, it’ll be cool for St. Louisans to have the night’s two biggest sporting events both taking place in their city, but it will take a minor miracle for the Rams to turn their game into anything more than a distant afterthought.
