Sports spotlight shines brightly on St. Louis

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Apparently, Monday Night Football had a message for the World Series: Meet me in St. Louis.

 

The prime-time NFL game has been around since 1970, but until now, it had never been played in the same city where a World Series was going on.

 

The dual events Monday that are taking place near but not quite under the Gateway Arch meant more than 100,000 people were expected to be crammed into downtown St. Louis.

 

Games 3 and 4 of the World Series drew record crowds of more than 47,000 to Busch. The dome holds more than 66,000 fans. Whether or not the matchup of the 3-4 Rams against the 6-1 Seattle Seahawks draws anywhere close to capacity will have to be seen.
