"Cards-Cubs Bridge" Could Be Name of New Mississippi River Span


Cards-Cubs Bridge?
  • Cards-Cubs Bridge?
Although we're still in favor of selling the naming rights to the new Mississippi River Bridge going up north of downtown St. Louis, state senator John Lamping (R - Ladue) might have the second-best suggestion.

This week Lamping offered an amendment to a current bill that would name the bridge the "Cards-Cubs Bridge" for motorists crossing the structure from Illinois. Drivers leaving Missouri would be greeted with a sign announcing it as the "Cubs-Cards Bridge."

Lamping's suggestion could appease legislators in both Missouri and Illinois who have to sign off on the name. And it's certainly better than the current proposal: "Jerry F. Costello-William 'Bill' Clay Sr. Veterans Memorial Bridge."

Don't ya think?
