ARNOLD, MO (KPLR) - Every Los Angeles Rams football loss is proving a sweet deal for former St. Louis Rams’ fans. Every time the Rams lose, the next day ice cream cones at the Dairy Queen in Arnold are only $1. It’s sweet revenge for St. Louis football fans.
Ice cream cone sales at the DQ more than doubled Tuesday. Matt LaPlante brought his family in for dollar ice cream cones, “I love it I’ll come every time and bring my family and kids and everything and have a good time. Hoping they lose every time.”
By 8 pm the restaurant had sold more than 700 cones. Rebecca Spiegel was enjoying the Rams loss. She said, “I think it’s the way to get back at them show hey you should have stayed here.”
Fans who are angry at the way they were treated by the team’s owner are still feeling the pain. Steven Snyder came all the way from Edwardsville for the cheap ice cream, “Definitely revenge I went to most of the games last year we spend good money trying to show support for the community and considering the way they went out I don’t feel bad at all.”
At St. Charles Lanes there’s another deal, every time the Rams lose, the next Monday bowlers get the first game free. The owner of the bowling alley told me he purchased 14 years’ worth of season tickets. He’s saying good riddance to a team he supported for many years. Randy Lightfoot is the owner, “I’d like 0 and 16, cost me a lot of money and I was upset the way the team was handled.”
The owner of the bowling alley says he purchased a PSL when the Rams first came to town plus 14 years worth of season tickets. He`s saying good riddance to a team he supported for many years.
