Majerus: What's a guy gotta do?
This morning at 10 a.m. Frank Haith is expected to arrive at Room 200 in City Hall where Mayor Francis Slay will bestow the Mizzou basketball coach with a key to the city.

A press release sent out yesterday from the Mayor's Office notes that Haith "led the Tigers basketball team to one of their best records in school history."

And, yes, Mizzou's 30-5 record last season was pretty spectacular, especially considering A) how few people knew who Haith was a year ago and B) how many people hated him once they knew who he was.

Still, there's one man in town who has to be scratching his head at Haith getting the key to the St. Louis.

That would be the basketball coach for St. ('effin!) Louis University. All Rick Majerus did this year was have a season nearly as impressive as Mizzou's (the Billikens went 26-8) and get his team further in the NCAA tournament than Haith did when his Tigers lost to lowly Norfolk State in the first round.

That said, we can't find anything on the Google about Majerus ever receiving the keys to St. Louis.

So, hello, City Hall? How 'bout a little something for our hometown boy? If there aren't any spare keys lying around, we're sure Majerus would take a simple token. Maybe an "official" bobby pin to the city? You know, that he could use to try to open a few doors around town.

A slanted piece about the writer's jealousy that someone other than his favorite got recognition for something. Sad.

The Mayor is told whom to key and what to proclaim.

unfortunately, the key does not open any gyms in the city of St. Louis, resulting in top recruits continuing to go to places other than Columbia for their college careers.

Where's the press release?

Perhaps since Majerus' boss bully boy Biondi makes it his personal mission to tear down every historic building in this city the city fathers decided that him, SLU and their shitty basketball team can all go fuck themselves. Maybe now we can expect this fat shit to start puffing and wheezing as he threatens to move his precious university to the county because he didn't get his way. Don't cry faddah.

My memory is a bit fuzzy, but I recall there was some kind of athletic event in St. Louis involving college basketball, oh, a month and half ago, and maybe someone can fill me in what happened, but I don't think Mizzou was involved.
