Morning links: If a team wins on Monday night and nobody is there to see it, does it count?

Good morning.

The focus in St. Louis is not on football. With the World Series tied 2-2, the whole town is concerned about Game 5 and not Monday Night Football taking place about a mile north of Busch Stadium.

I wrote about those odd circumstances around this game for today's paper.

It's fair to expect a feast for the Seahawks tonight. No crowd to deal with, the Rams playing turnover-prone Kellen Clemens at quarterback, the Seahawks playing well on the road prior.

We'll talk predictions later today.
