The Best And Worst of the Milwaukee Brewers First Half

It's a semi-annual feature, the Best and Worst of the Milwaukee Brewers first half! The first half of the season is done so it's time for us to once again steal the Best and Worst format from With Spandex and cover the good, the bad and the ugly of the Brewers first half.

But before we get into that, I need to remind you that the Miller Park Drunk Pants Party aka The Greatest Tailgate Party Of The Summer is coming up in just ten days. Strangely, there are still tickets available and we would really like for you to come. Tickets include a game ticket, beer koozie, commemorative cup, all-you-can-eat delicious tailgate food and all-you-can-drink beer/strawberry, jalapeno and watermelon infused margaritas/more. We are grilling up brats, bringing back the brat pizza from last year and doing NY-themed meatball sandwiches. It's going to be good. The game is 7/27. You can get four tickets for $120. All you need to do is show up and watch the Brewers beat the Mets. You will have the time of your life. Do it. (And if you can't go you can at least buy a koozie pack.)

The Brewers are in first place so this should be easy, right? Everything is a best! It is the greatest season ever! We are cruising into the playoffs! Right? Right?! Continue reading →

Everything Is Not Awesome

The Brewers just got swept by the Philadelphia Phillies. It's hard to saw which one was more unbelievable: the one where they gave up seven runs in the eighth inning, the one where Lyle Overbay hit a grandslam and they blew a 5-1 lead in the SECOND inning or the one where Roberto Hernandez pitched a three hitter. I'm going to go with the Overbay one because I was there and I did this:

On top of that, the Brewers have now lost 9 out of 10 and have only a two game lead over the Cardinals who just so happen to be coming to town for a three game series starting tonight.

Everything is not awesome. Everything is not cool when you're following this team. Continue reading →

10 Things You Can Sue The Brewers For $10 Million Over

In case you don't read the Courthouse News Service while enjoying your breakfast tea and beignets everyday like I do, a big story out of New York is that a man is suing the Yankees, MLB and ESPN because they showed him asleep on television. And then they did this:

ESPN focused its cameras on him, Rector says, and then "Announcers like Dan Shulman and John Kruck unleashed avalanche of disparaging words against the person of and concerning the plaintiff. These words, include but not limited to 'stupor, fatty, unintelligent, stupid' knowing and intending the same to be heard and listened to by millions of people all over the world ..."

 

jtcryBut that's not all. They also said these more specific hurtful things:

 "Plaintiff is a fatty cow that need two seats at all time and represent symbol of failure.
"Plaintiff is a confused disgusted and socially bankrupt individual.
"Plaintiff is confused individual that neither understands nor knows anything about history and the meaning of rivalry between Red Sox and New York Yankee.
"Plaintiff is so stupid that he cannot differentiate between his house and public place by snoozing throughout the fourth inning of the Yankee game."

googoodolls

"Plaintiff is so fat he sat on an iPhone and turned it into an iPad.
"Plaintiff is so fat he also is suing X-Box 360 for guessing his weight.
"Plaintiff is so stupid he went to the dentist to get his Bluetooth fixed."

And on and on and on. There is a lot of hurt in there and while I don't doubt Rector's claims (or his feelings) I have to throw a bit of shade on the lawsuit. I mean, ten million? For that? I can think of way worse things that baseball has done to me that deserve money more than this. Continue reading →

Is the MPD Pants Party Worth IT?

If you were to ask me if it was worth it to go to the Miller Park Drunk Pants Party on Sunday July 27th, I would answer your question with a series of questions. Do you like baseball? Do you like having fun? Do you like tailgating? Do you like hanging out with like minded people in a parking lot before a baseball game? Do you like keg beer and grill food? If the answer to these questions is yes then the Pants Party is worth it for you. You will have a good time and you should just buy a ticket right now.




But what if you were to ask me, on a dollars and cents level, if the Pants Party was worth it? I'd say that I think so. I'd say that I know it is cheaper than some Milwaukee area bars who hold similar events and give you a bus ride to the park, but then make you pay for drinks in the parking lot. I know that, but I don't really know. I've never done the math. So let's do the math right now. Continue reading →

The Beginning (or the End) of the Milwaukee Bucks

Sorry I'm writing about the NBA today when the Brewers are still the best ever, but I had to and you should still come to the Pants Party on Sunday July 27th. Only three weeks left to get tickets and when they're gone, they're gone. It will be the BEST tailgate party of the summer. You won't regret going, but you will regret missing it. Don't do that. Check it out.

jabariThe Bucks were not good, crappy, god-awful, terrible, sucky, awful, shitty and just plain bad last season. OJ Mayo was fat, Larry Sanders broke his brain, Caron Butler lived up to his "from Racine" billing and Larry Sanders broke his brain again. Which actually worked out pretty good for me because tickets were REALLY cheap and I like going to basketball games. The more I went, the more I got attached to this bad basketball team that was seemingly on its way out of my city. Before I knew it, I was invested. I cared about a Gary Neal/Ramon Sessions trade. I wanted these young guys to figure things out (Giannis! Wolters!) and fulfill their potential. I wanted Larry Drew to learn how to coach. I wanted them to stay. I became excited about the prospect of a high draft pick, even going so far as to watch college basketball to see the guys who could potentially play in the Bradley Center. It was cool, but there was still that shred of doubt that they were leaving. (I'm not going to get into the political arena debate here because we don't know anything about any of it, so what's the point?) I couldn't help but think that there was nothing that could be done and that the city would let them leave without a fight. I was excited, but there was always that in the back of my mind to hold me back.

And then they got sold and now every single thing that happens is exciting. They have the number two pick, they want to build the team through the draft, they don't care about being the eighth seed like Kohl and want to build a real life championship contender. These are real things that are happening and suddenly Bucks basketball is exciting again. For the first time since that brief period when we all loved Brandon Jennings (guilty as charged) or the Ray Allen Game 6 before that, the Bucks seems like a real team in the league. The thing is, the Bucks know this. They know that fan interest has never been higher, they know this is the most important draft pick in team history and they know that they can't miss. Which is why the following things are true: Continue reading →
