Didn't hear the news? Kurt Warner retired from the NFL today.

While he has been an Arizona Cardinal for longer than he was a Ram, St. Louisans still can't forget about the glory days when Warner led the Rams to a Super Bowl victory in 2000 and, well, victories in general.

Since St. Louis now has fallen so far, today seems like a fine time remember better days for the Rams and for Warner.

Like when he tried to draw God. Kurt Warner, this is your life (or at least the parts of it chronicled by the RFT.)

Fans turn on Warner?
After the 2002 Season, Warner was not the invincible hero anymore.

Instead, these strong emotions come from a significant chunk of Rams fans who gladly took a ride on St. Kurt's bandwagon during those two Super Bowl runs but now want to file for divorce and haven't been shy about calling him a sorry no-good dog on the local talk shows.
The RFT hearts Kurt Warner
In this article from 2000, Ray Hartmann reflects on how the Ram's Super Bowl run has united St. Louis, and made the city forget about its problems while celebrating Kurt Warner's sudden celebrity.

Kurt Warner Looking Fabulous!
No, it's not a throwback jersey. This is what happens when a NFL player goes on a Disney show.
