You know you've made it when, not only does your hometown show some love by inducting you into the genius St. Louis Walk of Fame, but....they also hire a three-piece ragtime band to play at the ceremony!
This year's inductee's into the Delmar shrine are:
*George Sisler—the greatest player in St. Louis Browns history, who ended his career with a .340 average. His son and family members will accept the honor at 11 a.m. on Oct. 22
*Charles Guggenheim—a documentary and feature filmmaker, four-time Oscar winner and director of both "Monument to the Dream" (yeah, the film you can still see today at the Arch) and "The Great St. Louis Bank Robbery," Steve McQueen's first film. His widow and daughter will attend at 11 a.m. on Oct. 29
*You saw this one coming, right? The man himself, Nelly, will be inducted on a date TBA (money's on Nov. 2 at the moment), for his many accomplishments that put St. Louis hip-hop on the miznap. (Is that a word? Or even a fake word?) Even better, if he's filed under "N" for "Nelly," (and not "H" for Cornell Haynes) he'll be the only other N besides Howard Nemerov...Plus, Chingy ain't even on the radar. Sorry, playa.
