ST. LOUIS QUARTERBACK CLUB TO ROAST RAMS DE GRANT WISTROM
ST. LOUIS -- Nov. 4, 2003 -- What is the deal with that hair? How about those Nebraska Cornhuskers after their loss to Mizzou? Those are just a couple of the verbal jabs that will be thrown at Grant Wistrom when he is roasted by the St. Louis Quarterback Club on Tuesday, Nov. 18, at the Sheraton Westport Chalet Hotel. The St. Louis Sports Commission is a co-sponsor of the event.
The roast begins at 6 p.m., and is an opportunity to honor one of the Rams' fan favorites. Proceeds from the dinner benefit the Grant Wistrom Foundation and will help pediatric cancer patients from SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital. Wistrom's Foundation works to positively affect the lives of children, especially those with cancer, through fun and recreational activities.
A celebrity lineup will be on hand for the roast to take its best shots at the hulking defensive end. Special guests include Rams offensive tackle Kyle Turley, St. Louis Blues broadcaster and former NHL'er Kelly Chase, Fox 2 Sports Director Martin Kilcoyne, Smash from KLOU Radio, and more.
Wistrom is in his sixth season with the Rams after being selected in the first round of the 1998 NFL Draft from the University of Nebraska. He is one of the most tenacious players in the league and has been a starter at right defensive end for the past five campaigns.
Tickets for the dinner and roast are $50. VIP tickets, which include access to a VIP cocktail party and preferred seating, are $75. Tickets may be purchased through the St. Louis Quarterback Club by calling 314-855-5000.
