Sometimes I wonder if most Brewers fans know how lucky they truly are. Sure, the team has never won a World Series and it was 26 years between playoff appearances. Admittedly that stuff sucks, but at the same time we've got Bob Uecker and you don't. Bob Uecker is one of the best announcers in all of baseball and probably one of the coolest guys in all the world. He's like the cool grandpa who buys you beer, plays beer pong with you and your friends, then proceeds to wipe the floor with everyone (If only that stereotype existed.)
We love Bob here and would love nothing more than to slam some Jack Daniels with him in the announcers booth. Now, here's 10 reasons why he is not only awesome but better than every other announcer in baseball.
Here's a "classic" Brewers promo by a band which Kris Liakos refers to as "what Starlight Vocal Band would sound like if they got high". Sounds about right.
Lyrics: Come see what's Brewing!
Come see what the good times are.
Come see what the Brewers are doing.
Come cheer a Superstar.
Be a believer in Brewers fever.
Stomp your feet,
Clap your hands,
you're part of the team sittin' in the stands.
Come catch the fever,
the fever with Brewers for everyone.
You'll be a believer in Brewers fever when you feel the excitement of a Big home run.
Stompin' your feet,
clapping your hands,
you're part of the team sittin' in the Stands!!!!
Come see what's Brewin'!
If you live in Wisconsin or especially in the Milwaukee area you've heard your fair share of "Brewers out drinking" stories. One of the funniest I've heard was about Rickie Weeks and JJ Hardy out on the town for a night. This was shortly after JJ Hardy was selected to the All-Star team for the first time and in his attempts to get laid was basically telling every girl who would listen that yes, he was a Brewer and yes, he just made the All-Star team. The guy who told me the story said that Rickie Weeks was apologizing for his battery mate's douchery for most of the night.
Now, is this story true? I don't know. The thing is I can see it being true and it's funny, so I like it. Does it stop me from liking the guy? Of course not. I wouldn't trust the guy around my girlfriend. I am highly unlikely to buy him a drink if I see him out. I'd most likely make fun of him if he was doing anything close to what he's doing in this picture.
But he's a good baseball player and I want him to help the Brewers win.
That, in a nutshell is what this site is about. We're not here to do statistical analysis on the team, let someone else do that. We like drinking, we like baseball and we just want to have a good time. Especially if that good time is before or after a Brewers game. So let's party it up like our pal JJ here. Opening day is right around the corner.
