    Can't Spell Sabbatical Without STL

    In this much anticipated episode of OSB, Eric and Mike talk very early 40s and get into general state of Saint Louis Blues hockey at the moment and talk about some of the surprise contenders and surprise duds of the 2021-2022 season.  

    Take us back, won't you?  

    This episode is unofficially brought to you by Discreetz.  Discreetz has no knowledge of their unofficially sponsoring this episode of Optional Skate Blues.  What is more true is that Optional Skate Blues wants to sponsor Discreetz.  Mike and I each would like to offer a (number) 2 dollar bill for our unofficial sponsorship.  

    When you think, "What smells like someone shit in a garden?" think Discreetz.  Discreetz is the original green fart rag and dollar store clear tape sulfur smell eliminator.  Don't settle for the competition's white fart rag and staples when you can get the comfort of a green fart rag and the sensation of common tape on your b-hole.  

    Discreetz, ask for it by name.  No need to be...Discreetz...about it.
