Looking for a Place to Watch Hoops Today?

Web site msn.com recently ranked Skybox in Laclede's Landing as one of the Top 10 sports bars in the country.

A company called Gayot.com compiled the rankings. Editors at Gayot (Is that short for "gay over time"?) were particularly impressed with Skybox's dozens of flat-screen TVs (including its televisions mounted in the bathroom) and the restaurant's cigar lounge. It didn't hurt, either, that the sports bar is owned by rapper Nelly and pro hoopsters Darius Miles and Larry Hughes.

My question, though, is whether Skybox will have all its TVs back and running for March Madness. The bar is one of several St. Louis' businesses that have been hit by television thieves in recent months.

My vote for best sports bar in St. Louis is the office. Don't know about ya'll but I'm not getting a damn thing accomplished today.
