Beginning at 7 a.m. TODAY, fans may pick up one of the 1,000 ornaments that line Milwaukee's Lakefront Parks, including Veterans Park, McKinley Park, Bradford Beach and Lake Park!
Over 1,000 lawn ornaments, without prizes, have been placed and will be available along Milwaukee's lakefront along Lincoln Memorial Drive from Veterans Park leading north through Lake Park. Beginning at 7 a.m., fans may come to these Milwaukee County Parks to pick up their very own Bernie Brewer ornament, compliments of the Brewers.
With the assistance of the award-winning Milwaukee County Parks and other Wisconsin-based parks, Brewers fans across Wisconsin will have an opportunity to win unique and valuable prizes by participating in the "Where's Bernie?" scavenger hunt.
In preparation for Spring Madness, Bernie Brewer has been hard at work. Bernie has already planted over 1,400 Bernie Brewer lawn ornaments across the state. Four hundred of the lawn ornaments have special prizes attached, and have been placed in parks throughout the 5-county metro Milwaukee area as well as in parks in Madison, Appleton, and Green Bay.
That sounds awesome! Man, too bad I don't live in one of the participating areas I would have gone to try and get one of those things. That lawn ornament would look great in front of the door to the basement at my mom's house.
Huh? What's that, tristarcoop?
#WheresBernie was a bust. All statues gone from two locations 20 mins before 5:00. Guy who placed em said. @Bernie_Brewer
That's too bad. Maybe you should have gotten up earlier like our friends at Brew Crew Ball did.
Arrived at Pierce Park in Appleton at 4:55 to a parking lot full of people walking out. Everything was already gone.
Oh, well, uh... hmm. What the hell is going on here Bernie Brewer?
#wheresbernie Brewers fans, please remember to share with other fans!
Why would you say that? You don't mean... I mean, who would? What would you even do with multiple lawn ornaments? There's no way anyone could be that selfish, right? Right!?
A-holes. F@*#ing a-holes.
UPDATE: The photos are from Erin McHardie's twitter who only got twitter to "be a follower." Seems fitting. Feel free to write nasty things to her @erinann1511 on twitter.
Also for those of you who think we should buy these on ebay, why give money to these scumbags? It only makes them feel right for ruining this promotion for everyone else. Screw them.
UPDATE 2: Thanks to a comment for this video (via @MadGrad73) to show that these idiots didn't ruin everyone's day.
