Anyone whose ever been to a Brewers game knows that for some reason girls look about 10x hotter than they normally do when they're at a game in Brewers gear. Maybe it's the alcohol, maybe it's our secret desire to make love to Corey Hart (doubt it) or maybe there is just something magical about Miller Park that turns every 4 into an 8. We don't know, but we love them and celebrate them here. We won't have pictures every day, but whenever we find one we'll post it.
HOW many of these people are Brewers fans? 75%? 80%? 90%? All of them?
Thanks to everyone for checking us out for the first time this week. We're still working a few kinks out, but suffice to say we are really enjoying this blogging about the Brewers thing. Updates will be sparse this weekend as like every other person in Wisconsin we'll be out doing things like eating fish fry, drinking and trying not to fall through what's left of the ice. Have fun out there.
The Brewers recently released their 2009 promotional schedule and it features a whopping SIX bobbleheads. Perhaps more noteworthy is the fact that they are all white.
May 3 - Ryan "Token Jew" Braun
May 31 - Trevor "You Bring the Cross, I'll Bring the Matches" Hoffman
Jun 28 - Jason KKKendall
Aug 30 - "The Grand Wizard" Jeff Suppan
Jul 26 - "Klatwurst" Bratwurst
Sep 20 - Doug "Bombed a church in Alabama in the 60s" Melvin
I don't necessarily have a problem with any of the selections, except for the ones that I do. If we're basing this off of last year, how does Jason Kendall(OPS+ 72) get one before Mike Cameron (OPS+ 110)? Could it be because he misplayed that ball in the playoffs? If that's the case, then why would Jeff Suppan get one? Jeff Suppan of 5 runs allowed in three innings fame of the deciding game fame. This spot should have gone to CC Sabathia, Yankee or not. After all he did last season I think most fans would have been happy to have him on their shelves. While we're giving people who aren't with the team bobbleheads, lets give Jack Z one before we give Doug Melvin one. He's the one who drafted the nucleus. Finally, I question the placing of Hoffman on the bobblehead list. They didn't do that for Eric Gagne last year (thank god), just imagine if this turns out similiarly (which isn't as far of a stretch as I'd like it to be). The bridge will be covered in smashed Hoffman heads.
Regardless, it's not like these things MATTER. It's not like who gets a bobblehead is inherently important to the success of the team and it's definitely not like the team purposefully went through and picked out every white guy they could find. If that was the case every fifth Sunday would be extra large, extra white Craig Counsell bobblehead day complete with white hood and pitchfork. Admittedly, the team would break four million in ticket sales if they did that but the point is they DIDN'T do that.
Hey A-Rod. We know you did steroids. We don't really care that much, but we love the fact that your image is "tarnished" and that in a few years people will be wanting asterisks next to everything you ever accomplished. We also know that you cheated on your wife with Madonna. We would think this was cool if your name was Daryl Strawberry and you did this sometime between her breakup with Sean Penn and Like A Prayer. Unfortuanately for you, you waited until she joined up in a seemingly made up religion and started going through painstaking processes to keep herself young looking. I guess it's not your fault you were 14 when that album came out. We know that you like teenagers. We know that this might just be a ploy to get people off the scent of Madonna. We know a lot about you, Alex. We know almost everything, but do you know what bothers us the most?
The fact that you were born in the USA and chose to play for the Dominican Republic instead! Seriously?! You're playing for "your country" Alex? It seems to me you were born in New York and then briefly lived in the Dominican before moving back to Miami. It seems to me that you are an American citizen with Dominican descent. You should try moving back there and telling me how that works out for you. Tell me if you like the drug trafficking and high crime threat. Tell me if you prefer the schools and medical care for your children. Tell me if you like living in a place that doesn't have a Scores. Or personal masseuses. I'm pretty sure you'll be back, Alex.
