Contrary to the video above that is NOT the worst seat at Miller Park. Tonight the worst seat in Miller Park will be the one I am sitting in (or depending on your point of view, the one next to mine). Why? BECAUSE I AM FREAKIN' SICK!
Seriously, who gets sick in the middle of August? Can't I get sick during Packers season or when the Bucks are playing? I blame the fair. You think carnies have any health codes? Doubt it. That corndog I ate Sunday night was probably touched by more unwashed hands than Lindsay Lohan's breasts. So thanks to them tonight instead of a beer, I'll be drinking... I don't know, what else do they serve there?
Taking the day off to attempt a recovery in time for the game.
Some people love our site. Some people hate it. Some take offense to things that are written here and send me four emails over the weekend. The gist of it?
Please kindling remove the posting of the expunged image and kindly take down my communication from your posting, my communication was not posted on the comment board and was sent directly to your e-mail address only.
So, I posted something that maybe I shouldn't have and have since taken a portion of it down. I don't want to get sued (though I am fairly certain I couldn't be) and more than that, I don't want people bothering me. The only reason I post this now is because of something in that same (of four) email which read:
Could you please provide contact imformation as to how I can send you the expunged documents from the WI Dept Of Justice.?
Now, I don't know about anyone else but whenever you have someone formerly accused of a crime asking for information like this it makes you stop for a moment. I mean if someone formerly accused as a child molester asked you where your kid went to school, you'd freak out right? Exactly. So I'm not crazy when I send this email, right?
I have removed your name and image from the posting. Beyond that I see no reason for me to change anything on my website and I am only doing this so that you will stop contacting me. I do not care to see copies of your expunged documents and the fact that you want my contact information worries me based on your history. Please do not contact me any further.
It seems that the bandwagon is emptying at an alarming rate. I try to keep positive because, well for one it's not very smart for me to say "stop caring about baseball, the Brewers season is over! Go find another blog!" and two, it's still baseball. Crazy things happen all the time. You just never know. Of course with every loss to the Pirates, you kind of DO know.
A recent poll on Brew Crew Ball has 1% of Brewers fans saying they won't give up on the season until it's over with 83% having already given up. 83%!!!! I'm not exactly sure what this means though. If you are among the 83%, do you still care about what happens? Or have you mentally checked out? Have you moved on to football season? If this is the case, I ask you to reconsider. This Brewers season is not the one we wanted, but it's still the Brewers season. It's kind of like a bad porno. Sure, the girls aren't as hot as you expected and they're all tatt'ed up like Josh Hamilton. Sure, there is too much closeup. Sure, the plot sucks and the music is terrible. The fact of the matter is it's still a porno, it's still people having sex. Despite it's problems there are a number of good reasons to continue watching the Brewers. Just like you keep watching the porno for the T&A, you should keep watching the Brewers for these reasons (and just like in porno not one of them is a "sausage race".) Continue reading »
Well, it's been fun hasn't it? Milwaukee, I like to think, was pretty good to you. You were the only player on the team to get his own specialized chant (Bill clap, clap, clapclap, HALL, Bill...) which is a feat that may never be duplicated since the majority of fans only seem capable of doing the "Let's Go Brewers" chant. (Seriously, we can't do any better than that? Are we that devoid of creativity? Any chance "Less filling!", "Tastes great!" can come back?) You had that one amazing season which was a total fluke, but you got paid for it anyways. As time went on you got progressively worse and despite maintaining your excellent defensive skill you slipped to the point that your contract was the only thing keeping you on the team. It was sad to see as you were one of my favorites, but if you're not hitting it doesn't matter how much people like you. That's just the way it is. I always knew you had the goods, but something just didn't work. Were you trying to hit 35 homeruns on every swing? Because that's not you. You are more like a 20 guy. I am convinced that season was the worst thing that ever happened to you. Continue reading »
While I am still not 100% committed to throwing in the towel on the 2009 Brewers season the fact remains that in order for the Brewers to make the playoffs this season will require a minor miracle. Not quite a water into wine type miracle, but something along the lines of the Brewers bullpen holding a lead, Jason Kendall getting an extra base hit or an awful writer not losing his job when the newspaper industry is going broke. The mere existence of Anthony Witrado gives our season hope.
Whatever happens this season know that this isn't the first time the Brewers have let fans down after a successful season. In 1982 they made the World Series and on August 25th 1983 they were in first place, but by the end of the season they were 11 games back and in a pre-Wild Card world out of the playoffs (not that they would have made it anyways). So if you are feeling let down by the Brewers now, just imagine what it was like in 1983. You know, besides totally awesome.
Or we could just do the imagining for you. That's right, it's Miller Park Drunk: 1983 Edition.
