    That was a little premature. >> Read more trending news  Enthusiasm for the St. Louis Blues possibly winning their first Stanley Cup left the NHL  team’s hometown newspaper red-faced Sunday morning. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s digital edition contained a letter of congratulations from Blues owner Tom Stillman, thanking fans after “the elation of breaking through and bringing St. Louis its first-ever Stanley Cup.”  >> Ozzy Osbourne uses infamous mug shot to tweet support for St. Louis Blues  The problem? Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final was scheduled for Sunday night, and while the Blues led the series 3-2, the game had not been played yet. To make matters even more embarrassing for the Post-Dispatch, the Boston Bruins beat St. Louis 5-1 Sunday night to force Game 7, which will be played Wednesday night in Boston. The digital edition also included an advertisement from Enterprise, the car rental company based out of St. Louis and the title sponsor for the Blues’ arena, according to USA Today. The ad published a “2019 Stanley Cup champions” logo that included a Blues logo, while the ad copy congratulated the team for winning the Cup. Stillman’s comments were effusive and were certainly meant to be published if the Blues won Lord Stanley’s Cup. 'Winning the Stanley Cup was a dream come true for so many of you,” Stillman wrote. “All of us will remember where we were, what we did and how we felt when the Blues brought the Cup home.” Later in the letter, Stillman made a reference to parading the Cup “down Market Street” in downtown St. Louis. In a tweet Sunday afternoon, the newspaper said “In preparation for the outcome of the Stanley Cup Final, some of our readers got a sneak peak (sic) at what our advertisers are hoping to say to the Blues, the fans and St. Louis. We apologize for the sneak peak (sic) -- and hope to share their messages with everyone very soon!”
  • Mack Brown counted on Michael Bolognesi at defensive back at the University of North Carolina during the early 1990s. On Monday, the North Carolina football coach counted on his former player to replace his right knee. >> Read more trending news  Brown, 67, who is beginning his second stint as the Tar Heels’ coach, had knee replacement surgery at Duke University Hospital, UNC spokesman Jeremy Sharpe told ESPN on Tuesday. Bolognesi, who played at North Carolina from 1989 to 1993 and lettered his senior season, said the surgery will not affect his summer schedule. Brown was discharged from a hospital several hours after the procedure, Fox News reported 'The surgery went really well with no issues or complications and he'll begin a standard rehabilitation program in Chapel Hill immediately,' Bolognesi said in a statement. 'We don't expect there to be any need to alter his summer schedule as it relates to team and football operations.' 'First off, how cool is it that one of our former players replaced my knee yesterday,' Brown said in a statement. 'We talk about building young men so they can be productive husbands, fathers and citizens. Carolina produces a lot of special people and I'm happy we were able to play a small part in Mike's development because we counted on him and he, along with the rest of the surgical and anesthetic team, did a tremendous job.' Bolognesi played his senior season for Brown in 1993, when the Tar Heels went 9-3 and ended its season with a 21-17 victory against Mississippi State on Jan. 2, 1993, in the Peach Bowl. Brown previously coached at North Carolina from 1988 to 1997, according to the university’s football media guide. He returned to Chapel Hill and was hired in November to replace Larry Fedora, who was fired.
