The St. Louis Blues are asking for your help to try and find three missing team bags that are lost on their way back from Sochi.
The St. Louis Blues are enlisting your help to try and find three missing team bags that are lost on their way back from Sochi. According to the team, the luggage was all picked up in Newark, where the Olympic team planes landed, but three of the pieces didn't make it to St. Louis. The Blues have reported the incident to FedEx, but are also reaching out to get any help they can get across the internet in their search. The bags belong to T.J. Oshie, David Backes and Alex Pietrangelo. From the Blues:
"In Backes’ case, his bag contained several Team-USA signed pieces of memorabilia that he had planned on using to raise money in an event later this month.
I was hoping that perhaps we could add some urgency to the search process for Fed Ex. Obviously this is something that happens to people every day, and while David certainly doesn’t think of himself as a special case, I still feel it’s our responsibility to exhaust all of our resources to help." If you do happen to come across one or all of the missing bags, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can contact the Blues directly through Dan O'Neill: DO'Neill@StlBlues.com. Below are the types of bags the Blues are searching for.
UPDATE: The bags have been found.
