Have you seen this Olympic hero's luggage?

ST. LOUIS -- Lest you think annoying things don't happen to Olympic heroes, consider this: T.J. Oshie's lost luggage from his trip to Sochi, Russia, is still missing.
It wasn't everything -- just his Team USA bag. But it had memorabilia from a journey in which he dazzled the world with his shootout wizardry and went from relative unknown (outside St. Louis) at the tail end of the Olympic roster to one of the most famous hockey players in America.
So, yeah, there was some meaningful stuff in the bag.
Besides, if you've ever come up short at the airport, you know the aggravation.
Actually, Oshie was among three St. Louis Blues Olympians -- David Backes and Alex Pietrangelo being the others -- who returned from Sochi while their team bags did not. A FedEx search led to the recovery of Backes' and Pietrangelo's bags, but Oshie's remains missing more than a month later.
You haven't seen it, have you? Grabbed it by mistake, perhaps? Oshie will always have his memories, but hey, if you have any leads for the luggage sleuths, please call the Blues at 314-622-2583 and ask for Dan O'Neill in the team's PR department. Your team's co-leading scorer would appreciate it.
