The Spirit of Saint Louis

The best write up by far of the Saint Louis University Billikens and their majestic season so far appeared today in the New York Times. Go read it.

My favorite part of Greg Bishop’s excellent story:

They learned of his death after the first December practice, carried the coffin at his funeral and honored his legacy by securing the No. 1 seed in this week’s Atlantic 10 tournament at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. They think of him when they eat Italian food or execute perfect backdoor cuts. They remember the laughter, the perpetual food stains, the presence.

It feels like he is still around. The spirit of St. Louis.

Since SLU has not really made any good wallpapers that I’ve seen, I made this one. Feel free to download and use it if you’d like. Click the image for a full-size.
